Read our list below to help you decide when its time to call a roofing company to help you.
-Check the roof every spring to make sure it is in good condition. Remember that even if you don't use your attic, a leaky roof can cause problems like mold and mildew on walls or furniture inside. You may also notice an increase of water stains appearing on ceilings and windowsills too.
-If there is any water damage on the ceiling inside of your home, roof repair should be the first thing you do. If it has been a while since roof damage, there may still be some water getting into your attic and seeping through ceilings to get inside of the home. It can be a simple as roof shingles being too old to prevent water from getting inside the underlayment to be causing the issue.
-If you see roofing material that is cracked and deteriorating, or if there are any signs of moss or algae growing on the roof decking or roof flashing at your home, roof repair may be needed. If these issues have been around for a while without being corrected, water could still be getting into your attic and causing damage or rot to the decking, roof joists, or roof sheathing.
-Dark streaks on the ceiling and water stains in the attic are also clues that roof repair is needed.
-Loud, gurgling sounds from your gutters may be a sign of roof leakages as well; this can be caused by crushed shingles, missing roof vent flash or shingles curling.
-If you see roofing nails or roof leaks, this is a sign that your roof may need repair work done soon so it doesn't continue getting worse and costing more money for repairs down the line. You should also lookout for signs of uneven roof surfaces like tiles that are higher than others or even sunken in.
-If during an inspection period we notice any problems with roofing on your own or if customers mention them to us, we like to get on the roof and take care of roof repair work as soon as possible.

Body: During the colder months when it is below 40 degrees outside with no snow on your roof or ice on the ground which could be caused by ice jams, roof repair work can be done safely.
Otherwise, roofing companies will need to wait for the roof to thaw and dry out before the roof fix is able to happen as ice or snow could cause roof leaks in many different ways (causing even more problems). You could get ice dams in the winter, roof leaks during the summer, or roof rot due to standing water.
The roof repair work will include replacing any damaged shingles, flashing a chimney that has had ice dams on it for years (I bet you're wondering how those got there!), and installing an ice barrier over your entire roof which can get rid of all future.
