Signs Your Roofing Needs Repair

Your home is your most valuable asset. A quality roof made from top-quality materials is guaranteed to last a lifetime and will remain in place for as long as your home exists. But what happens if something happens? Even though damage may not be apparent immediately, or even at all in some cases. Professionals from Hercules Homes LLC can inspect your roofs and offer advice on how to fix minor issues before they become major problems.

Cracked Shingles

You should inspect your roof after storms or heavy rains to see if there are any signs of damage. If your shingles are showing signs of damage from water or buckling around their edges, it could be a problem with the way they were attached to buildings. It is also a good idea to be attentive during heavy rains, as missing granules may indicate leaks beneath which could lead to higher costs down the line.


Rotting Roof

If you notice a drooping or sagging roof, it is important to act quickly and take care of the problem. I can see signs like rotting boards and moisture trapped below that could lead to me showing up again at a higher price down the road if we don’t take action now.


Unwanted Trees

If there is too much moisture, moss can grow on roofs. If you want your home to be saved from destruction, it is important that you get rid of all moss immediately. Moss will only lead to more problems in the future and can even cause damage. To remove small clumps, you can use a stiff brush, or scrape off with something like an old credit card. This will ensure that the signs disappear for good.


Damaged Flashing

Flashing is a material used to cover protruding objects on roofs, such as chimneys and vents. It is specifically designed to stop water from entering your home. By diverting runoff onto another surface, away from vulnerable seams where rain could cause extensive damage such as mildewing of ceilings or walls due to leakage in subpar materials like wood, flashing will help you to replace them at a great cost.


Light is coming through the Roof

Lookup if you see any light through the crack in your roof. This is a sign that your roof needs to be repaired. Check the upper rooms, roof included, to make sure everything is okay. Don't wait for the rain to come back!
