Every homeowner will inevitably encounter a problem with their roof at some point. Some roof problems are due to aging, while others happen because of poor maintenance. Fortunately, most roof issues are manageable, and many are even preventable. The key to preventing a minor roof issue from growing into a major catastrophe is immediate repair. Here are four roof problems that require immediate attention:
1. Water Leakage
A leak is a symptom of a separate roof problem, not the original cause. If your roof is leaking, you may have cracked tiles or shingles or damaged flashing—all problems that require immediate roof repair.
At Arry’s Roofing, we provide thorough leak detection services to determine the source of the leak and provide thorough and effective repairs to prevent further damage. We follow a proven evaluation process to cover every area where the leak could have originated. Whatever the culprit, we have the expertise and experience to fix the issue efficiently and safely.
2. Mold or Fungi Growth
Organic growths are easy to notice because they create unsightly, dark marks on the surface of your roof. Unfortunately, there’s no way to mold- or fungi-proof your roofing system, but investing in professional roof cleaning can rid you of the issue. As experienced roofers, we recommend a complete roof cleaning service at the first sign of mold or fungi growth.
3. Granules in the Gutter
If your asphalt shingle roof is new, you don’t need to worry about granules in the gutters as this is completely normal for new roofs. If your roof isn’t new and you notice these loose granules, however, you have a problem that needs immediate attention.
Shingles shed their granules over time due to exposure to the elements, leaving them defenseless against the sun. Bald shingles compromise your roof’s protection, making you vulnerable to leaks and other issues.
A drooping roof is indicative of a structural issue. Only two things cause sagging: the foundation or the roof deck. As your trusted roofing contractor, we can determine the cause of the drooping and repair it.
