Signs A Roof is Bad

 

Replacing your roof is not a flashy home improvement project so most people delay it too long. Sometimes that means they'll sustain serious damage to the interior of their home.  Expensive roof repairs might include:

  • wood rot replacement,
  • plaster and drywall repair
  • painting
  • mold removal
  • insulation replacement
  • and electric damage repair

Here's a list of signs to look for when determining if your roof is bad and needs repair/replacement.

  • Stains on Interior Ceilings & Walls

Possible Cause: Inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage, or inadequate ventilation.

  • Missing, Cracked or Curling Shingles

Possible Cause: Low grade shingles or shingles that have exceeded their expected life.

Great tips here. If you can see it needs help while your on the ground, it's most likely time to call a professional to walk your roof for a better evaluation.
