4 Easy Ways a Homeowner Can Recognize if Their Roof Has a Problem

roof leakRoof problems can be a huge headache, especially if you catch them too late. How can you recognize a roof issue? Here are four easy ways any homeowner can tell.

#1: Stains on Your Ceiling

Water stains on your ceiling are a telltale sign you could have a roof problem. Your ceiling is one of the first places water hits when it leaks in through a faulty roof. If you notice stains on the ceiling that are new, there’s a good chance you have a roof problem.

#2: Mold on Your Exterior Walls

Where the roof meets the wall on the outside of your house should look clean. If mold is present, that’s not a good sign. This could indicate failing flashing, which allows water to flow down the side of your house instead of down the roof and into the gutters. Mold on your home requires immediate assessment.

#3: Hail or Weather Damage

Whether from wind and debris or hail or severe weather, roof damage from weather happens. If it damages the shingles, you could end up with water under your roofing material and eventually inside your home.

#4: Poor Vent Seals

The vents on your roof require proper housing to seal them and prevent leaks. If there is damage to the housing, you could end up with a lot of interior damage from water coming through the failing seals.

Before you climb up on your roof and start looking around, talk to a professional roofing company. Experienced roofers can evaluate your roof to find out if you have a problem and advise you on how to address it.

How UV Rays are Damaging Your Roof

RoofWe protect ourselves from UV rays, but what about protecting our roofs from UV damage? It might surprise you to learn how UV rays are damaging your roof. Take a look.

What Are UV Rays?

Ultraviolet radiation, or UV rays, is part of the spectrum of light we get from the sun. You can’t see them, but they’re there. And they can do a lot of damage. Think about sunburn and skin cancer. Those are the result of the UV rays we get from being in the sun. Those same harmful rays hit your roof all day every day.

What Do UV Rays Do to Your Roof?

The sun can cause your roof shingles to fade and dry out all on its own. The UV rays, however, do even more damage. They damage the top layer of your roof material, leaving it exposed to the elements and compromising your roof’s integrity. If the protective layers of your shingles can’t keep water out, you could face a serious issue with water damage under your roof and in your house.

What Can You Do?

One of the best ways to prevent UV damage to your roof is by choosing roofing materials that are resistant to damage from the sun. Materials that reflect the sun instead of absorbing its heat will keep your roof cooler and help prevent sun damage.

Are you worried about UV rays damaging your roof? The experts at Premiere Roofing can inspect your roof, assess the damage, and recommend a course of action, including potential roof replacement with better materials.

What our clients are saying
“I used Premier Roofing to inspect and eventually replace our roof without any issues. Nothing but great things to say about all of the staff we spoke to on the phone and in person, and the installation crew. The roof looks amazing, cleanup was solid, and you wouldn't be able to tell they were even here if it weren't for the clean new shingles.”
