As seasoned industry professionals, we’ve seen a lot of roof damage. Sometimes you can repair. Other times, you need a new roof. Here are four signs that indicate a new roof is in order.
The Four Signs
The weather in Florida is a significant factor in roof damage. The hot, humid weather combined with frequent storms can be a recipe for disaster. If you notice any of the following signs, it means you need roof repair or replacement:
1. Leaks or water stains on the ceiling or walls
2. Excessive moss or algae growth on the roof
3. Damaged or missing shingles
4. Sagging or buckling roof decking
Leaks or Stains on the Ceiling or Walls
Roofs are designed to withstand a certain amount of weather-related stress. In Florida, that stress can be exacerbated by the hot, humid weather and frequent storms. Leaks or water damage on the ceilings or walls indicate that the roof is no longer working.
Excessive Moss or Algae on the Roof
Moss and algae growth are also signs that the roof is no longer protecting the home. Moss and algae grow in moist, shady areas. When they start to grow on the roof, it means that the roof is not keeping the moisture out. These growths can hold moisture against the roof, causing rot and further damage. When these occur, you need roof repair or replacement.
Damaged or Missing Shingles
Missing or damaged shingles occur as a result of wear and tear and severe weather. They also put your roof at risk of leaks and further damage, which is why you should address them sooner rather than later.
Sagging or Buckling Roof Decking
Sagging or buckling roof decking is a sign of structural damage. This damage can be caused by water infiltration or poor construction. Sagging or buckling roof decking is a sign of structural damage. This type of damage occurs when the support beams are no longer holding the roof’s weight. Sagging or buckling roof decking can be caused by water damage, rot, or insects.
