How to Tell if Your Roof Needs Emergency Repairs

Your roof is one of the most important structures in your home, which is why you need to be vigilant about having it repaired immediately when any problems crop up. Regular roofing maintenance can help you catch and repair small problems before they turn into bigger issues and require expensive repairs. 

However, even with regular maintenance, you might not be able to catch all roof damage early on. If you notice any of these problems on your roof, call Roof Experts for emergency repairs right away.

Leaking and Water Stains

Water stains on your ceiling can be a sign of a leak that’s been around for a while. For a leak to stain your ceiling, it needs to penetrate the layers of the roof and the insulation in your attic. The location of the water stain isn’t necessarily where the leak is in your roof, which can make repairs more difficult. If your notice water stains in your ceiling, we don’t recommend trying to locate and repair the leak on your own. Call your roofing team and schedule an emergency appointment to have it repaired.

Shingles are Missing or Damaged

As your roof ages, your shingles endure a lot of wear and tear. Rain, storms and humidity can weaken them, and the sun can dry them out until they’re brittle. Small pebbles in your gutters might mean your shingles are eroding and need to be replaced. You might also notice cracked or broken shingles, or shingles which have completely fallen off. Shingles are the first line of defense against rain, storms, humidity, and other rough conditions, so call Roof Experts right away if you notice missing, damaged, or aging shingles. 

Flashing is Lifting or Failing

Flashing is a thin metal sheet used to repel water from the places it would normally pool in on your roof. It’s typically seen on the base of chimneys, but it can be found in other corners and critical areas. If your flashing starts lifting, it needs to be replaced immediately or else these areas are more vulnerable to water damage. If your roof starts sustaining water damage in areas covered by flashing, it might mean your flashing is failing and is no longer effective in keeping water out. Lifting or failing flashing should be repaired immediately, Flashing is a vital part of your roof, which is why we don’t recommend repairing it yourself.
