As homeowners, it’s crucial to be proactive in assessing the condition of your roof to ensure it remains in optimal shape. In this blog, Arrowhead Roofing, Oklahoma’s first GAF master elite residential and commercial roofing contractor, will guide you in recognizing potential roof repair signs and issues. Let’s explore some key indicators that distinguish roofing problems from ordinary weathering signs.
Here are four roof repair signs to watch for
- Water Accumulation on Your Roof
After rainfall, it’s not unusual to find some water on your roof. However, if this water lingers for an extended period, it may signal a drainage issue that requires attention. We recommend scheduling a roof inspection to find the cause of the pooling water.
- Granules in Your Gutters
For those with asphalt roofs, discovering a few granules in your gutters now and then isn’t cause for alarm. Yet, when you notice a significant loss of granules, it could indicate the need for shingle replacement.
- Changes in Roof Color
The color on your shingles will fade over time as your roof ages. Very faded shingles on a roof that is around 20 years old indicate your roof is likely due to be replaced. As roofs age, they can also accumulate algae which appears as dark spots on your roof. You can softwash this algae off to preserve your shingles, but it is still indicative of an aging roof system that will need replacement soon.
- Roof Age
The age of your roof plays a significant role in its vulnerability to defects. Most roofs last 20-25 years.
