If your roof is damaged, we will fix your issues quickly and efficiently. Here are a few signs that your roof may need repairs:
If your shingles are not installed properly, there is a chance that water can get underneath them, which will rot the wood holding up your roof. Suppose your wood rots or warps, the cost of this repair increases significantly. The potential for your roof collapsing due to wood rot is one of the main reasons you should get your roof repaired at the first sign of damage. Some of the damage you could find associated with shingle repair includes:
Missing Shingles: After a heavy windstorm or storm with hail, you may want to contact us to ensure you are not missing any shingles. Although, in some cases, the shingles may be clearly lying on your lawn. Do not fret if you see shingles on your property. We can easily and quickly replace any missing shingles.
Broken Shingles: Broken shingles indicate a sure sign of roof damage, and these shingles are letting water enter below the shingles. This repair will also need prompt attention before it causes the wood underneath the shingle to rot or warp.
Curled Shingles: Your shingles may begin to bend upward or downward as they age. Unfortunately, this also allows water to penetrate the wood below and calls for immediate replacement.
Cracked Shingles: During the summer months, when our Tennessee temperatures reach highs, typically over one hundred degrees, “thermal splitting” or cracked shingles occur. Yet again, when shingles start breaking, it leaves a path for water to enter under the shingle.
Roof Leak Repair
Some of the most obvious signs that your roof is leaking and needs repair include the following:
- Water running down the walls or the walls appearing to bubble under your paint job.
- Standing water on the floor or in your garage and attic.
- The ceiling has dark spots that may feel damp.
- Water stains or mold in the attic. Even if you do not see puddles of water, that does not mean there is not a leak in your attic or between your walls.
If you spot any signs of leaks or issues with your shingles, it is time to contact Brian Elder Roofing to repair your roof. It is best to let our professional roofing team handle the maintenance and care of your roof. It can be perilous for you to climb on your roof, even to check for missing shingles. Additionally, remember that the longer you wait, the more expensive the repair could be, and you could even find yourself needing an entirely new roof.
