After a strong storm or wind-driven rain, DO YOU NOTICE a spot on your ceiling? Or discoloration. If you have access to your attic, look in the attic for signs of leaking. It could indicate damage shingles, inadequate underlayment, or deteriorated flashing.
If there is air conditioning equipment in the attic, take a close look to see any moisture or condensation on pipes. A leak doesn’t always have to be a roof failure.
Signs of a Leaking Roof
Stains, or worse, mold, can be caused by leaks outside the house or moisture trapped inside.
Residential Roofing Repair Moisture Killing Your Roof From The Inside
If you see shingles on your roof that are crumbling, it is a sign that your attic is not adequately vented. A poorly vented attic will shorten the life of your roof. I’m sure you have seen roofers changing plywood on some roofs.
Most of the time, it’s not a problem caused from the outside of the home. It is a moisture problem that rotted the roof from the inside out.
Here in Calverton, many times to keep squirrels or other visitors out of our attics. I have seen homeowners board up the attic vents from the inside and some even outside to keep rodents out.
Do Not Board Up Those Attic Vents
Suppose their problem was birds or, worse yet, bees. The homeowner makes an airtight repair. Not realizing he is causing a costly roofing situation that will cost thousands to correct years later. Using heavy gauge metal screening will keep out unwelcome visitors and still let the roof get proper ventilation. This will not happen overnight, but if not corrected, it you cost you big time. Keep those rodents and flying visitors out with screening materials. Get professional advice. You will be saving the life of your roof and your wallet.

Inadequate ventilation can drive up your household cooling costs by trapping hot air in the attic. Attic moisture can also drip into your insulation, reducing its effectiveness.
Here Are Some Things to Look for When Doing Residential Roofing Repair:
Vegetation, fungus, mold, or algae growth can cause dark stains on your shingles. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need a new roof, but if you do choose to replace your shingles, ask for StainGuard® protection — available on many GAF Shingles, including Timberline® Cool Series Shingles, Timberline® Natural Shadow® Shingles, Timberline® ArmorShield™ II Shingles, and Timberline Ultra HD® Shingles.
Shingles that are missing perhaps You Roof Only Needs a Roof Repair
The roof is literally at the top of any homeowner’s maintenance list, or it should be. Your roof is subject to unnoticed wear and tear until it leaks. Fortunately, you can make minor repairs without the help of a professional roofer.
Once you’ve tracked down the leak (I have a video on our video page to help you), replace damaged shingles or shakes, patch tears in flat roll roofing, or seal any joint gaps. While many fixes are relatively simple, it’s best to call a roofer for widespread damage, signs of structural problems, or feeling weak when you walk on your roof. If your roof is over 20 years old, you could request a roof inspection.
