SIGNS YOU MAY NEED ROOF REPAIR
A shingle roof is designed to last about 20 years or so. As your roof creeps towards that mark, you may notice signs of damage. Some of these signs of damage that could lead to a roof repair include curled shingles, missing shingles, and cracked shingles. Basically, shingles lay flat against one another so when they don’t anymore, water can penetrate to your attic and cause major roof repair needs.
Stained Ceilings or Walls in Your Home
Water stains on your ceiling or your walls can be caused by a variety of things, from the hole in your roof to a leaking plumbing pipe in your wall. However, a common cause of water stains on your ceiling is a leaky roof. What happens is a small hole forms in your roof where water then seeps through. As water seeps through, it soaks the underlayer of the roofing material, which then seeps through to your attic and the floor of your roof, which then seeps through your ceiling. In order to stop this non-stop flow of water seeping, you should call your local roofing company for roof repairs. Adept Construction in Naperville will perform a full roofing inspection in order to discover any leaks. Then once we find the leaks in your roof, we’ll repair your roof and get it as good as new. Call today if you notice any water stains that you suspect is from a leaky roof.
Higher Utility Bills
Sometimes it may take years for a homeowner to see any physical signs of a leaky roof, especially if your attic has a lot of insulation. However, you may notice a spike in your utility bills month over month that is inexplicable. This could be a sign that something is wrong in your roof. While your roof could be leaking out energy, your roof could also be suffering from a ventilation issue that needs to be addressed as well. What happens is that too much heat builds up in your attic and can’t escape during the summer, which can cause your air conditioner to work harder. Conversely, too much heat escapes through your attic during the winter, causing you to use more heat to warm your home. A spike in heating and cooling bills is a good reason to have your roof inspected by a professional roofer in Naperville today.
Signs of Critters
Critters, such as raccoons, opossums, birds, and squirrels love to make your attic a home. After all, it’s warm in the winter, dry in the spring, and cool in the summer. It’s high off the ground, safe from predators, and it’s hard to get to. The problem is that critters can do a lot of damage to your attic that would require a roof repair. They leave behind their droppings, they tear up your insulation, and they make holes in your attic. Mice can chew electrical wiring, creating a fire hazard as well. If you see signs of critters in and around your roof, it’s time to call for a roof inspection from Adept Construction. Our professional local roofers will ensure your roof is not a welcoming place for critters. Call today for your free roof repair estimate!
