It’s unfortunate, but most homeowners pay little if any attention to the roof that protects their homes. If you think that the roof is not as important as other areas of your home, that mindset is going to get you into trouble in the future. As one of the most important components of any structure, the roof on your home plays an extremely significant role in that it protects you and your family as well as the contents of it. So, if you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to contact a contractor at the roofing company in San Jose.
Attic water stains – if your roof is damaged and leaking, you will probably find water stains in your attic. These are easy to see so it’s always advisable to call a roofing professional immediately to help locate any roof problems. Any suspect areas should be repaired as soon as possible.
Broken shingles – shingles often get broken before their time. Therefore, you should inspect them 1 or 2 times a year. Even if you find only a couple of damaged ones, you should call your local roof repair company and have them replaced immediately.
Dark and/or wet shingles – if your roof’s shingles look darker that what they did when you had them installed or if they appear to be wet, excess moisture may be trapped in them. If this happens to your entire roof, it may not be as noticeable as if only a few look different from the rest. One way or the other, call a roofing company.
Loose gutters – as one of the essential components of many roofs in the Bay Area, your rain gutters collect dirt, rainwater, and other debris. As a result, this is one of the first roofing components to need repair or replacement. If yours are sagging, they’re probably overloaded with dirt, gunk, and/or water. You can prevent additional issues by cleaning them out at least 2 times a year.
Sudden spikes in your monthly utility bills – spikes in your electric bill may indicate that you have a roof issue, such as cracks and leaks that let cold or warm air out. If there’s a drastic change in your monthly electric bill, you should call a roofing company to inspect your roof.
