The Signs That It’s Time for a New Roof

Unless you are a trained roofer, the signs of irreversible damage to your roof may not be immediately evident. At times, large holes in your roof, if dealt with promptly, only require your roof to be repaired. Other times, a missing shingle that has been left to its own devices for several years could condemn the entire system. Roof damage is tricky, and even some professional roofers will not recognize subtle signs that a roof is in need of a full replacement.

While we urge you turn to fully licensed and insured roofing contractors in Detroit like Kroll Construction for a thorough roof inspection every 3 to 5 years, here are some signs of damage to look for in your roof:

  • Ceiling Spots
  • Damaged Flashing
  • Missing Shingles
  • Curling
  • Algae Growth
  • Blistering
  • Missing Granules
  • Buckling
  • Rotting

Be Safe, Call a Professional

Climbing up onto your roof, especially one that is severely damaged, is extremely dangerous. If your roof collapses, you will likely go down with it. The smart choice is to leave the ladder where it is, pick up the phone, and call a professional Detroit area roofing company like Kroll Construction. We are fully trained and deeply experienced with damaged roofing systems, and have the proper equipment to handle even the most dilapidated roof.
