Our Lake Norman shingle roof repair team has a lot of experience with various types of shingles, so they can assess the need for repair or replacement.
If the roof at your home has shingles, you may want to keep an eye out for signs that it needs repair or replacement. If you wait until it is too late, you may be dealing with a house full of water after a big storm, or simply have drafty winds blowing through your house during the cooler months. The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that you visually inspect your roof every six months. You can start inside by checking the ceilings of your attic with a flashlight. Look for areas where the ceiling sags, has dark spots, or where you can see light shining through. Any of these can be signs that you might need shingle roof repair.
After you check indoors, look around on the roof for algae or mold growth, cracked or missing shingles, signs of wear or loose material (especially around the chimney or vent pipe), and examine the rain gutters for any shingle granules, which look like large grains of sand and can be a sign of more advanced wear. If your roof is made of tile, do not walk on the roof, or the shingles might shatter. Concrete shingles are more heavy-duty and don’t require much maintenance or replacement. Cedar shingles tend to split and crack, and they can become mossy in more humid areas.
