Many homeowners are still tackling their spring cleaning and home improvement projects with the warmer weather setting and summer officially here. Due to the harsh winter or simply the passage of time, one of the important aspects often neglected is the roof repairs that are needed. By addressing the minor problems, investing in early roof repairs can reduce the risk of heavy and costly repairs later on. A comprehensive inspection by a professional roofer can help you determine if your roof is in good health if you are unsure if your roof could use any repairs. The most common roof repairs that are often needed as the weather warms up is what we at Montgomery Roofing would like to share today.
Signs of a Damaged Roof that Needs to Be Repaired
1) Worn Openings and Roof Additions. Especially after a season where the weather had extreme circumstances, deterioration around your vents, pipes, chimney, and other such locations will decay faster than other reinforced areas. Letting the deterioration continue to wear will result in more costly repairs, so doing early repairs can spare you heavy costs.
2) Damaged Roofing Shingles. Over time and extreme weather conditions, the shingles can become damage or missing since they are not designed to last forever. To avoid leaving the raw materials exposed and vulnerable, shingles that are cracked, curled, dirty, wet or absent altogether need to be addressed. You can be saved from worse damage down the line with quick shingle replacement.
3) Spiked Energy Bills. It is never a good indicator when you see the energy bills become alarming high. Whether your heat or air conditioning is on, the warm or cool air might be escaping through small fissures in the roof, there are numerous causes, the roof can be at fault. Your energy costs will slim back down to normal after making the needed repairs.
4) Roof Deck is Sagging. Spring frequently creates wet conditions. Due to your decking or rafters in your attic not being able to support the weight from heavy rains or deteriorating from extreme temperatures. These effects may or may not be a localized problem. Your roofer can assess the damage and determine the extent of the needed repairs before a cave-in occurs in any case.
