5 signs that you might need roofing services
Fall and winter is a terrible time to discover that you have a leaking roof. Luckily there are plenty roofers you can find in amNY Home Pros.
Here are 5 signs your roof is in need of a refresh.
- Stagnant water
There are two causes of water build-up: the roof is not properly installed and a drain is clogged. Unclogging drains is easy, but improper installation is not. In some cases you will need a new roof.
- 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.
- Higher energy bill
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.
- 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.
- Big bubbles on a flat roof
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.
