3 Signs You Need Roof Repairs, Kernersville, North Carolina

Your roof plays an integral role in protecting your home, so it pays to have an eagle eye when roof repairs are needed. Many issues go unnoticed because homeowners don’t pay attention to the roof or attic, and over time, these can lead to more serious problems. There are telltale signs of roofing problems, so look out for the following if you have an older roof or have experienced inclement weather. 

How to Know Your Roof Needs Repairs

1. Missing Shingles

One or two missing shingles may not seem like a problem, but they’re one of the only things protecting your home. It only takes a small perforation to let water seep in. If you notice missing shingles, reach out to a residential roofing contractor for assistance. They can easily replace the shingles and look for signs of warping or cracking that may signal possible issues.

2. Leaks

If you notice water damage, go into your attic when the sun is shining and see if any rays are piercing your roofing. You’ll need to properly seal these. If you can’t find holes, leaks may be occurring around the chimney or skylights, and a contractor will need to take a closer look.

3. Chimney Damage

If the mortar or sealant around your chimney is chipping away or eroded, you may begin experiencing leaks. A breaking chimney may also crumble and damage the rest of the structure. If you notice wear, have a roofing contractor examine your chimney. They can apply more mortar as needed or reseal around the base to prevent leaks and keep the structure strong.
