Warning signs for failing roof

1. Leak in the attic.

Always check your attic for leaks after a storm. Ice daming can cause water to enter your house. If your roof is quite old, make sure you check regularly to prevent huge damage.

 

2. Blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint.

This is caused by too much moisture in the house - excessive temperature or humidity due to poof ventilation. Make sure your house is well ventilated so this won't happen.

 

3. Stains on interior ceilings and walls; mold or mildew growth.

Once you see stains or mold growth inside your home, it is due to your deteriorated shingle underlayment. Poor ventilation can be one of the causes of mold and mildew growth in your walls or ceiling.

 

4. Exterior decay, sheating, and/or siding.

Insufficient attic ventilation is a possible cause for decay. Remember that any excess moisture in your home can cause decay. One way to resolve this to add a vapor barrier between your insulation and the inside of your house.

 

5. Missing, cracked or curled shingles.

Once you noticed that your shingles are dry and will break once someone touches it, this means that they have reached their purpose. You need to invest in a new roof.

 

6. Dark "dirty looking" areas on your roof.

If you notice this on your roof, it only mean one thing, your shingles' protective granules has been lost. You don't have to replace your roof but your roof has lost its appeal because of the stains. You can opt to choose to use StainGuard® protection that is available on many GAF Shingles, including Timberline® Cool Series Shingles, Timberline® Natural Shadow® Shingles, and Timberline® ArmorShield™ II Shingles.

 

7. Excessive energy costs.

Inadequate attic ventilation will make your cooling system run excessively, as well as in warm weather it can trap hot air in the attic, making your interior hotter. In both these weather, moisture in your attic can be stuck there if your house is not properly insulated.
