Common Signs of Roof Damage

Feb 10, 2024

Your roof plays a significant role in your home’s curb appeal, protection, and overall structure, making it one of your most significant investments. One of the keys to protecting your big investments is to identify anything that threatens them, right? That certainly is the case when it comes to your roof. Any damage to the system can prevent it from properly carrying out its essential functions, which can have major impacts in a variety of ways. So, this is why it’s important to be cognizant of the common signs of roof damage. That way, when you notice that there’s something wrong, you can efficiently and effectively get it taken care of by turning to a trusted roofing contractor. 

Keep an Eye Out for These Common Signs of Roof Damage 

Roof damage can come in a variety of forms, and some are more noticeable than others. That’s why it’s such a good idea to stay on top of your roof inspections. Regular inspections and maintenance will help you keep your system in tip-top shape, plus your contractor will be able to keep an eye on any potential problem areas and deal with them in a timely manner. But when it comes to looking for common signs of roof damage yourself, consider these:  

Leaky or Clogged Gutters 

If your gutters are leaking or clogged, that could be a sign that you need a new gutter system installed. But it’s smart to go a step further and identify what’s causing these leaks and clogs. If your roof is ultimately the culprit, you’ll need to get that taken care of. Otherwise, the cycle of damage will simply repeat itself when you invest in new gutters. Of course, one great way to prevent problematic clogs is investing in gutter guards. 

Visible Damage in the Form of Broken, Cracked, or Curling Shingles 

This is the easiest type of roof damage to spot, as you may even be able to see damaged shingles from ground level. It’s important that your broken, cracked, or curling shingles are identified and replaced efficiently because leaving them unaddressed can lead to further problems that may prove costly if you let them go for too long.  

Water Damage 

If you’re noticing dark spots or discoloration on the walls inside your home or on your ceiling, that’s a sign of water damage. And in many cases, that means you have a roof leak that you need to get resolved quickly. If you leave water damage unaddressed, it can lead to severe structural damage. 

Issues With Your Attic 

Along the same lines as water damage surfacing in the form of spots and discoloration of walls and your ceiling, mold, rotting wood, or other damage in your attic may be another indicator that you have a leak. Any type of damage like this can be related to moisture, which can create major problems if left alone. 

Collection of Granules 

When your roof begins to age, its granules may loosen. Whether it’s simply the passing time or exposure to the elements—especially severe weather—your roof’s granules may begin to collect in your gutters or on the ground around the downspouts of your gutters. Excessive shedding could be a sign that you either need shingles replaced or a complete roof replacement.
