Signs That You Need a Roofing Repair
You don’t need to go up on top of the roof to check for signs of roof repair. In fact, there are plenty of signs on the inside when you need a roofing repair. We’ll explore those and tell you how to check to see if you need some roofing repairs below.
To check for damage to your roof, you will want to look at the weakest part of your ceilings – that’s usually near the skylights, if you have them. You’ll also want to check your attic. It’s the least-traveled room in your house, most likely, and it bears the brunt of bad weather.
Grab a flashlight and look around
Walk around the inside of your home with lights on and a flashlight in your hand. Check ceilings and walls for discoloration. Make a pointed note to look in on the inside closets too. Pay attention to inside the water heater closet, over tubs, sinks, your stove, etc. Why? These areas may have vent pipes that go up to the roof. The ventilation they have may be sealed with mastic or tar and be one of the most common sources of a roof leak.
Look around the chimney
Your chimney has a metal flashing that can often leak. Seals will usually need to be resealed every few years over the life of your roof. Skylights are also a frequent source of leaks, and the rubber gasket between the lens and the skylight frame only lasts about ten years.
Things you’re looking for specifically:
- Leaks or seepage – the best time to check your attic for seepage is after a heavy rain or snow storm.
- Ceiling stains or paint blistering – if it appears in the interior walls and ceiling, then your roof is probably damaged. Damaged roofs will also produce yellow, brown or orange interior stains. This means water has found its way inside.
- Mold – mold that appears on the surface of your ceilings or walls can indicate a roof in need of repairs. Sometimes, you only know if mold is around if you have allergy-like symptoms well past allergy season. Mold can wreak havoc on your health, so pay attention to the signs and realize that roofing repairs might fix the issue.
- High utility bills – a high utility bill can be sign that your roof needs some attention. If you’ve noticed sudden spike in heating or cooling costs, your roof could be to blame.
