3 Unexpected Signs That You Might Need to Have Your Roof Repaired or Replaced

A massive tree branch falling on your home or an attic fire that has caused your roof to burn are obvious signs you need to repair your roof. But what about some not-so-obvious signs? What about a higher-than-normal energy bill? Clutter in your gutter? Or even staining around interior walls? These are just 3 subtle signs that it might be time to take a look at getting your roof repaired.

1. High Energy Bills

Higher-than-normal energy bills could be a sign you might be in need of a roof repair. When air or heat escapes through hidden cracks or airways in your roof, your HVAC will have to work harder to replenish the lost assets. Because of this, your energy bills could skyrocket, costing you a fortune. If you notice your energy bill suddenly increases, it might be a good time to have your roof inspected or even repaired if you discover damage. 

2. Clutter in Your Gutter

If you have asphalt shingles on your roof, over time wear and tear will cause sand-like granules to come off the shingles, ultimately ending up in your gutters. While some granules are okay to find, a large amount of these granules could be cause for concern as it means your shingles might need to be replaced. Not only does it leave your roof unprotected, but it also leaves your gutters cluttered and in the need of a good cleaning. 

3. Staining on Walls

If you notice an odd color around the corners of your ceilings, it could be that your roof is damaged and water is seeping through an opening somewhere. That built-up water and moisture can cause mold and lead to a load of health hazards. If you notice staining on your ceilings, it’s a good idea to call in a professional. 

While there are obvious signs and some not-so-obvious signs you need a roof replacement and simple repair, it’s important to be aware of the different signs and respond to them in a timely manner so that more damage can be avoided.
