A major responsibility of owning your own home is keeping all of its aspects, including the roof, in good repair. While age may play a big part in when you decide to have your roof replaced or even repaired, keep reading for some of the major signs you might have a big problem.

Curled or Lifting Shingles

Having a shingled roof might add to the comfort and coziness of your home, like a cottage on a windswept moor, but beware! One of the major problems that a shingle roof will have is that each shingle must be taken care of and shown an equal amount of attention. However, they are easy to replace and whole sections of the roof of your home may be replaced or repaired. A big problem linked with lifting shingles is water collecting and associated damage. It can also lead to more suspect structural integrity problems, something deeper than a purely cosmetic issue. If your home does collect water, it can play host to quite a number of pests you would not like to have around, like woodlice or termites.

Missing Shingles

If your roof is missing shingles, that’s a fairly simple problem to diagnose. All you need to do is go around your attic, or where the roof is visible from the interior, and see where the daylight is leaking through. This will give you a better idea of which areas of the roof are more heavily damaged. You will want these breaches in the security of your roof to be repaired because they can allow in all manner of small creatures. Much like the water trapped in decaying shingles creates an excellent nesting ground for insects, the warmth of your home is like a lighthouse beam for dangerous if adorable, animals.

Discoloration of Shingles

The discoloration of roof shingles, generally presenting as dark stripes, is an airborne alga or a mold that can be harmful if breathed in and so not something you want where you live. It might look unsightly, but this is a problem that is easily fixed. Simply spray your roof, including all affected shingles with a mixture of water and bleach. This will dry the water-based organism out and it will just wither away. Be sure to protect your landscaping from the runoff of these harmful chemicals. Organic, they are not.

Your house is there to protect you, provide a safe and dry refuge for you. How can it perform this function with a ramshackle roof that collects water and lets in a menagerie? Look over this list of common problems faced by homeowners and figure out if it’s time for you to take the plunge and repair or entirely replace your roof. If just a portion of your roof needs to be replaced, you can do that as well.
