Signs You May Need Emergency Roof Roof Repairs
Any of a number of different things might tell you you need emergency roof repair. These include:
High energy bills
It’s natural for your energy bills to rise as your roof ages. But abrupt and large-scale increases in your energy bill might mean something is need of being fixed quickly.
Empty, barren spaces on your roof mean that a shingle (or shingles) has blown away or been destroyed, and that means your home is not protected from water damage. This is something that requires emergency roof repairs.
A leaking roof
If you notice water dripping down inside your home, it’s a near certainty that your roof has sprung a leak. This could cost thousands of dollars in damages if not addressed immediately.
Visible roof damage
If you can plainly spot damage to your roof, there’s no need to consider any other factor: you need emergency roof repairs.
Your gutters have shingle granules in them
Granule will slowly wear off of your shingles as they age, but if large amounts of them suddenly begin appearing in your gutters, it likely means there’s an issue that needs to be fixed.
Vegetation on your roof
Plantlife needs water to grow, and if you see some on your roof, it means that your roof has a presence of water that shouldn’t be there. It’s hard to know what damages are present with a quick glance, so it’s best to have professionals look at it when you notice it.
Damaged or missing flashings
Flashings are what protect the seams that hold two flat panes together. If they’ve sustained damage, it could compromise the structure of your roof.
