One structure you should always hire professional help for is your home’s roof. Many people enjoy doing projects around their home, but when it comes to working on a roof it is very dangerous to work that high in the air without professional training. It is advantageous to have a professional roofer inspect your roof yearly, you also should contact one if you notice any of the following signs of damage.
1. Broken Shingles The shingles on your roof should always be in good condition. Over time, you may begin to notice that some shingles are starting to crack. Also common is for shingles to fall off leaving patches on your roof. This is more prevalent in areas prone to high wings. A couple of missing shingles isn’t over concerning, but you still want to have your roof inspected to avoid additional damage. If your roof is missing a large amount of shingles you may have an underlying structural problem that needs to be corrected as soon as possible.
2. Clogged Gutters Your gutters should also be clear of debris so that they are able to adequately move water away from your home. Homeowners should inspect their gutter often, especially during the fall and winter months when leaves fall more frequently. If your gutters have damage you should have a professional roofer inspect around them to make sure the roof has not sustained damage as well.
3. Sagging Roof Deck It is a good idea to take a look at your roof from the sidewalk or curb every so often. By observing your roof’s foundation, you should be able to determine if it’s beginning to sag. Even if you are not completely sure and only suspect sagging, you will want to have a professional roofer come out and inspect it, as it can be caused by a few different things.
