The Dangers of Having a Roof in Disrepair

When your roof starts to decline, it can lead to many issues inside your home. Something as simple as a few lifting shingles can lead to problems with water getting into your home, or even an animal making their way into your attic. The best thing to do if you notice that your roof needs some work is to either repair the problem areas or replace the full roof. Which one you need depends on the issues your roof has.

Types of Disrepair to Worry About with Your Roof

There are many things that fall under the category of disrepair when it comes to your roof. Some of the most common issues we see include shingles that are either missing or have curled up corners, a roof that begins to sag, and even water stains on the ceilings of rooms inside your home. Each of these points to a roof problem.

If your roof starts to let water in, there are many issues that you may face. First, you could have water damage inside your home. That could be anything from moist rafters to damaged insulation, to mold or mildew growing inside your home and spreading each time your HVAC system turns on. A sagging roof says that the supports of your roof could be struggling to hold up the weight of your roof. If you have a weak or broken support, your roof could collapse, leading to catastrophic damage.

Shingles that go missing, give off the grains on their surface, or begin to curl are signs that you need to do some roof work. The longer these issues go unrepaired, the more likely you are to wind up with critters or damage on the inside of your home.
