5 Signs That You Might Need Roofing Services – Bronx Times

Here are 5 signs your roof is in need of a refresh.

Water buildup occurs for two reasons: the roof is not properly installed and a drain is clogged. Unclogging drains is easy, but improper installation is not. Sometimes you need a new roof.

2. Stains on interior ceilings or walls

Those water spots or discolorations on your walls or ceilings? Perhaps the underlayment of your roof is letting moisture into your home, leading to the stains. Replacing your roof solves this problem.

If you suddenly see a spike in your air conditioning or heating costs, cold or warm air may be leaking out through your roof. Have it checked.

4. Dark spots on your roof

An early warning sign of roof damage, a dark or stained spot on your roof is the result of algae or mold growth. If you let it hang, it will eat away at the gravel base, loosening and rotting them.

5. Big Bubbles on a Flat Roofing

Another problem for owners of buildings with flat roofs or tar roofs is the air bubbles that form on the surface, either from extreme heat or from poor installation. At first, the bubbles fill with air, but when pierced, they swell with water. If you don’t do anything, the water-filled bubbles will damage your roof.
