5 Signs Your Roof Is Not Safe

Roofs are constructed to last for a significant amount of time; however, they eventually become worn out and start experiencing problems. Shingles may need to be replaced, and water is leaking into your home. To avoid serious issues that can cause potential safety hazards, it is essential to know the five signs your roof is not safe.

1. You Find Problems in Your Attic

Check your attic for water stains. If you find stains that are on your attic ceiling that are running down your walls, this is a strong indication that your roof has sprung a leak. Get this issue fixed quickly, or you will be contending with water damage and mold buildup. Your insulation can also get damaged. A roofing professional will be able to pinpoint where the leak is located and make necessary repairs to keep major problems at bay.

2. Your Roof Is Drooping

Walk around the perimeter of your home and look up at your roof. If you notice any portion of your roof drooping, a roof replacement is inevitable. A drooping roof can either be caused by wear and tear, rotting boards, or trapped moisture.

3. Your Roof Is Bouncy

Your roof is not a trampoline. If your roof feels bouncy as you are walking across it, you have a serious problem. Moisture is trapped inside your roof, and its structure is weakening. At this point, the damage is significant enough that you will need a new roof.

4. Problems With Shingles

If you notice that shingles are curling or cracked, this is a sign that your roof needs repair. Buckling or cracked shingles will not protect your roof, as they cannot prevent water from entering.

5. Moss and Mold Are Growing

If you see moss and mold growing on your roof, this is a telltale sign that your roof is in trouble. There is a structural problem somewhere that has allowed moisture to build up and become trapped. Portions of your roof can be rotting, or there may be an issue with where your exterior walls and roof meet. Failing to resolve this problem can cause mold to spread and damage your home. Not to mention, mold can negatively impact the health of you and your family.

If you spot even one of these signs, you need to get help straight away because it is only a matter of time before problems become serious. If you live in Reno, NV or any of the surrounding communities, contact Joe’s Roofing for all your roofing repair and replacement needs.

Joe promptly answered our call for assistance, even though it was the day before Thanksgiving. Joe went out of his way to complete a roof inspection within a very tight time frame and provided the information we needed. He took the time to answer our questions and was polite and punctual as well.
