It’s happened to all of us—you go to your attic and find that little hole in your roof. You may think it’s not a big deal and try to ignore it, but a few months later, that small hole will turn into a very expensive leak. If your roof is damaged, you can’t wait—you need to get it repaired now.
Don’t Let a Small Leak Turn Into a Big Problem
Roof repairs often get worse over time. Even a small crack or hole in your roof will give water a way into your home, putting you at risk of health and safety concerns due to water damage. A build-up of mold can have a significant impact on your health and eliminating the source of the moisture is typically the only way to manage a mold problem. Cracks and holes in your roof also increase the risk of pests finding their way into your home.
How to Tell if Your Roof Needs Repairs
A water stain on your ceiling is typically a sure sign that your roof is leaking—but there other warning signs to watch out for, too. Having your roof inspected annually by a licensed roofing contractor will help identify any potential concerns, including:
- Curled, cracked, or buckled shingles
- A sagging roofline
- Cracked or damaged tiles
- Gaps between the roofing boards
You can even download and print your own DIY Roof Inspection Checklist to get the process started before giving us a call.
When Should You Have Your Roof Repaired
Hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 31st, so it’s a good idea to have your roofing repairs completed during the off-season. All repairs should be completed by a licensed and insured roofing contractor to ensure they are done properly. Don’t put off repairs until the last minute—hurricane-force winds and torrential rain can quickly turn a minor repair into a big issue.
