Things to watch out for.
Most of the time, when we think about problems with roofs we think of leaks. But aging roofs and poorly ventilated attics can cause other problems you might not think about. Here are a few things to keep an eye out for. And if you have any questions about your roof or attic, we’ve got answers. Just give us a call at 800-473-7663.
Missing, cracked, or curled shingles
Possible cause: Shingles have reached the end of their useful life.
Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof
Possible cause: Loss of granules due to age of shingles.
Stains on ceilings and walls, or mold and mildew
Possible causes: Inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage or inadequate ventilation.
Dry-rotted overhangs, and/or siding
Possible cause: Improper starter shingles or clogged gutters.
Leaks in attic after ice build-up
Possible cause: Inadequate shingle underlayment allows water from ice dams to leak into attic.
Leaks in the attic after wind-driven rain
Possible cause: Leaky or inadequate shingle underlayment or deteriorated flashing.
Blistering and/or peeling paint
