Here at Ladder Labor, we know that your home is important to you, and we want to help you keep it in the best possible condition. One way we do that is by providing top-notch roof repair services, as roof problems can lead to serious damage to other parts of your home if left unaddressed. In this article, our team will go over a few ways that you can tell whether your roof needs repair—if you notice any of the following things happening to it, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Aging Shingles. One way to determine whether you need roof repair services is to look at the condition of your shingles. If they are visibly cracked or starting to curl at the edges, if they are shedding granules of asphalt, or if they are wet with trapped moisture, then they are nearing the end of their lifespan and should be replaced soon.
- Stained Ceilings or Walls. Another place to look for indicators as to whether you need roof repair is at your interior ceilings and walls. If you notice staining or discoloration in these areas, then it’s likely that moisture is seeping in through your roof, a problem that needs to be corrected right away.
- Higher Energy Bills. A third way to figure out whether you need roof repair services is to look at your energy bills over the past year. If you see a sudden increase in your heating or cooling costs, that spike could be caused by gaps in your roof allowing air to leak in or out of your home.
