If you begin to experience troubles with your roof, it can be hard to determine when you need to call a professional roofer, or if the problem you’re experiencing is temporary and will work itself out. To help you determine when you need to call a professional, here are the top signs that you need to call a roofer.
- Water Damage – Before winter approaches, it’s a good idea to go up to your attic and examine the rafters. If there is any water damage, you will be able to see water stains on your rafters or in your attic. Additionally, if you visit your attic on a sunny day, you may be able to inspect your roof for any holes. Any of these signs requires a professional roofer to make repairs.
- Your Roof is Sagging – If you notice any sort of sagging in your roof, call a roofer immediately. A sagging roof indicates not only roof damage, but structural damage as well. A sagging roof should be repaired immediately, especially before winter since a large snow load could be dangerous for your home and its occupants.
- Inconsistent Heating/Cooling Bill – An inconsistent heating and cooling bill is a clear sign that your home is struggling to regulate a consistent temperature. This problem can be caused by poor insulation, fuel, siding, or roofing. Call a roofer to have your home inspected and learn more about how you can save on your heating and cooling bill.
