Common Signs Your Residential Roof Needs Repairs

Our roof repair team in Louisville, KY can help identify the source of water leaks to prevent other damages to the foundation.

  • Peeling Paint – If you see any peel or bubble near the roofline, understand that excess moisture is accumulating in that particular area. If you don’t address the damage with a repair the moisture eventually will build up causing the area to rot and decay.
  • Staining on Interior Ceiling – Staining is also caused by moisture. If you see any discoloration, brown or yellow spots, it might be the cause of failing underlayment that needs to be repaired.
  • Higher Energy Bills – When you notice an unusual increase in your electricity, your roof could be to blame. Most of the time the increased cost is the leaking of heating and air conditioning caused by structural damage.
  • Animal or Insect Appearance – If you notice any raccoons, bats or insects make sure to do a quick inspection of your roof. If the critter keeps appearing every other day but you can’t find the opening, call Front Runner Roofing in Louisville, KY to see if there is a hole in your roof.
  • Missing or Loose Shingles – If you see a large part of roof shingles missing and don’t have any other layers of shingles on the roof you might need to entirely replace your roof instead of roof repair.
  • Shingle Granules in Gutters – Shingle granules are the stubbly material on asphalt shingles that protect the asphalt core of the shingle from the sun’s damaging rays. If your new asphalt roof is shedding some granules it’s normal but if your roof is over 10 years and it’s shedding heavy granules it needs to be addressed immediately.
  • Storm Damage – Broken or missing shingles and water leakage is the most common damage caused by storms. Even if you don’t see any sign of storm damage make sure to arrange for a roof inspection. Sometimes damages stay undetected which, if ignored, might cause serious roof damage and might need an expensive roof repair or an entire replacement.

Signs Your Home May Need a New Roof

In some cases, you will need a whole new roof instead of a roof repair. Our team in Louisville, KY will help you distinguish what service you really need.

Roof repair and roof replacement are two different things. You might see a sign of a problem on your roof, but most of the time you won’t be able to tell if it needs repair or replacement.

  • Your Roof Is Over 25 Years Old – Typical roofs last anywhere from 20 to 25 years with proper maintenance. As your residential roof gets old it gets weaker. If your roof age is over 25, spending on repairs is a waste of money. Instead of roof repair make a wise decision and replace the roof altogether.
  • Shingles Curling, Buckling, or Missing – Among all the roof materials shingles are the ones most exposed to sunlight, rain, and wind. The shingles start to curl and buck due to environmental factors over time. If you see shingles are curling and losing granules or missing altogether. Contact a licensed roofing contractor Front Runner Roofing in Louisville, KY.
  • Roof Valleys – Roof valleys are one of the most important areas of your roof. It acts as a path for rainwater and snow to the gutters. If your roof valley is damaged you will soon notice a roof leak that will need to be repaired or it could damage your entire roofing system.
  • Visible Moss and Algae – If the moss and algae remain undetected for a long period of time it might be a huge problem. Moss holds an excess amount of moisture in it and moisture is one of the major causes of roof damage.
  • The Ceiling is Sagging – Sagging ceilings can be dangerous. If kept ignored for a long period of time it could even collapse. If you detect a soggy ceiling contact a roofing professional as soon as possible. A soggy ceiling is caused by an excessive amount of moisture from a leak.
