Common Roofing Problems In The Spring

Ensure your roof is free from damage by doing an inspection of both the exterior and interior, so you can be confident your roof will withstand another season. As you walk along the perimeter of your home, you should check for water damage, leaks, missing or crumbling shingles, and any signs of animals. Take note of any noticeable damage and relay that information to a roofing professional.

Water Damage or Leaks

After the winter thaw and early spring showers, look for signs of water damage and leaks. Check the inside of your attic and any ceilings for these signs. Water damage looks like dark rings around your ceiling or walls. Over time, water damage and leaks can lead to mold and mildew build-up if not addressed.

Crumbling Shingles

On the exterior of your home, check the wear of your shingles. If your shingles are crumbling and starting to fall off, this is a sign that your roof is ready for a replacement. If this issue isn't addressed, missing shingles create openings in your roof for water to seep in. If left untreated, it can cause water damage.

Signs of Nesting Animals

Some nesting animals can cause damage to your vents and gutters. For example, nesting animals like birds and bats can block airflow in your attic vents, affecting the roof's structure when there is a sudden temperature change. Other nesting animals, such as rodents, can weigh down your gutters which adds more stress and causes your gutters to sag. Sagging gutters stresses your roof and can cause damage over time.
