Here are some tips on how to check your roof for signs of aging or damage:
CHECK THE INTERIOR OF YOUR HOME:
Begin your inspection inside the home. Safely gain access to your attic space, and with a flashlight look for these following items.
- The roof is sagging or looks weak.
- There is water damage or other signs of water coming into the home.
- Dark spots on the underside of the roof, and/or dark trails that would indicate water wicking down to a lower space inside the home
- Any kind of light coming through from outside
- Any visible signs of mold or yellowish stains
- Check your hardwood floors carefully for any signs of discoloration.
CHECK THE EXTERIOR OF YOUR HOME:
Walk around the outside of your home, observing the roof from different angles. Pay attention to details such as missing shingles, damaged flashing, algae or moss growth (appears greenish or dark), anything that looks rotten, or curling, blistering or buckling.
- Look for missing, cracked or bald shingles.
- Look for loose or worn material surrounding pipes, vents or chimneys.
- A large quantity of granules or sandy looking material in your gutters it is a definite sign that your roof needs replacing.
- Make sure your drainage is functioning correctly by ensuring that the gutters and downspouts are securely attached. These should be free of debris, as should your drains.
- Something that is commonly found is that bath, kitchen and dryer vents are vented into the attic space. They should go outside of your home either in the soffits, out the roof or the side of your home. If you find a vent being discharged into your attic space, plan to redirect it immediately
