What Roof Damage Looks Like

Roof damage comes in all forms. Know what to look for.

Attic leaks

Check your attic after severe weather. A leak could mean some shingles are damaged, the underlayment — a protective barrier between your shingles and the plywood of your roof — has failed, or flashing — the material that seals joints on your roof — has deteriorated.

Ceiling and wall stains

Whether you have leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside it can cause stains and possibly mold or mildew.

Blistering or peeling paint

If your house has poor ventilation this may cause moisture to get trapped, which may cause exterior paint to peel and blister.

Sheathing decay

Poor ventilation and moisture can also cause decay of sheathing, which is also called decking.  Decking is the layer of plywood that forms the foundation of your roof.  Your sheathing may be damaged if you notice a sagging ceiling, broken gutters, leaks or missing patches of shingles.

Dark Streaks

Although dark stains may look like dirt, it most likely is moss, lichen or blue-green algae.  This may not require a new roof, but you will need to replace your shingles.  Ask us about StainGuard® and StainGuard Plus® which are available with GAF shingles.

Shingle Damage

If you notice your shingles are curled, become cracked or are falling off, this means your shingles have reached the end of their lifecycle and it is time for a new roof.

Roof Inspections

Conducting routine inspections of your roof and around your home is important – especially if you live in an area that experiences extreme weather – this can help prevent exterior damage from creating costly interior problems in your home.

Here are a few things you can do:

  • Take a look around your home.  Check your ceilings for stains, mold or mildew.  Check your attic for signs of leaks, dark spots or holes.
  • Know how old your roof is.  Check the inspection report from when you purchased your home.  If you didn’t install it and you’re not sure, contact us for a free inspection.
  • Look at the homes around you – the homes around you were likely built around the same time.  If your neighbors are replacing their roofs, get your roof inspected to see if its time for your roof to be replaced too.
  • Experienced a significant weather event?  Heavy winds or a hail storm can cause serious damage. After it is safe to go outside, check the exterior of your home for any issues, like falling shingles.
