Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home – it’s what protects you and your family from the elements of nature. If your roof has one of these danger signs, give P.J. Fitzpatrick a call. Our roofing installation is the best in the area and our experts can help you choose the perfect type.
1. Damaged Shingles
If your shingles are cracked, loose, curled, or missing, they have reached the end of their life and aren’t the best option for protecting your home.
2. Changes in Energy Costs
Pay attention to your energy bill. If you notice that you’re paying more than usual, your roof could have a leak and could be letting in cold air during the winter and warm air during the summer.
3. Interior Water Damage
If you notice stains on your ceiling or walls or if your ceiling is sagging, your roof could be leaking. (It could also be a lack of or damaged insulation.)
4. Missing Granules
The granules on your shingles are what help protect them from the sun and weather. If you find that they’re missing a significant amount of granules (you’ll usually find them in your gutters), you may need to replace them.
5. Algae/Mold Growth
If algae or mold growth isn’t taken care of, it can spread. Algae and mold both hold moisture and over time, moisture can break down the integrity of your roof.
If you’ve noticed any of these danger signs, let our roofing experts help you get your roof back to looking great and sustaining the elements.
