When damage develops on your roof, don't hesitate to call a professional to schedule a roof repair. Otherwise, a minor issue may wind up developing into a slew of other issues that'll only cost more and more to repair. In the meantime, you and your loved ones could be at risk of a roof cave-in or other such problem.
To avoid those issues, call Lifetime Metal & Tile Roofing as soon as you find yourself dealing with roofing issues. Our roofing contractors will be onsite as soon as possible to get your roof back in shape, no matter what kind of condition it might otherwise be in. How can you know when to call us, though? Easy: you just keep a lookout for these telltale signs of roofing damage.
Increased Energy Costs
Your energy bills are going to fluctuate a bit every month, of course—sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, but its nothing to get too worked up about. What is worth getting worked up over is a sudden sharp and sustained increase in your electrical costs. If you've experienced such a spike and can't seem to get it back down, consider having your roof looked at. Chances are good it's in need of a repair, which will rectify any insulation-related problems.
Issues With Your Shingles
If you have a shingle roof, you're at an advantage when it comes to seeking out signs of wear. After all, when damaged, roofing shingles oftentimes telegraph their damage in the form of wear and other problems. It's a pretty sure bet you're in need of a roof repair if you notice any of these shingle-related issues:
- Missing Shingles
- Curled Shingles
- Buckling Shingles
- Dark-Colored Shingles
There are other signs of roofing issues which are every bit as easy to detect—and sometimes far more annoying to deal with. The sign we're referring to here is a leaking roof. When this problem develops, it's either roofing problems or a burst pipe. If you've ruled out the possibility of plumbing issues, then a roof leak is a clear sign that it's time to invest in a roof repair ASAP.
Stains And Discoloration
Stains and discoloration are another rather clear sign that something's wrong with your roof. A bit of color variance isn't anything to worry about too much. However, when you notice large areas of significant discoloration, it may be time to schedule a roof repair.
