Leaky or Saggy Attic
If you find your attic leaking, sagging or showing patches of brown, black or green, it’s a sign that there’s some problem with your roof. If your attic is letting in sunlight, it is also an indication of a roof problem.
Another sign of a potential roof issue is the presence of moisture. See how the roof is to your touch. If there are spots that feel soft to the touch, then it could be time to replace your roof.
If any part of the roof is squishy to the touch or feels sponge-like, then it is an indication that the wood therein has warped and has changed shape due to moisture – an indication that your roof needs replacement.
If you notice any of these signs in your attic, your roof may not be as tough or impenetrable as you thought it to be, and you may have to replace it for good!
If your roof has been protecting you for more than 20 to 25 years, consider replacing your roof. This is a preventing measure that can save you from a major disaster.
If the shingles on your roof are missing, deformed or are discoloured, it is a good indication that your roof has reached its time.
The missing shingles could be the result of a heavy storm. Even though only a few shingles might be missing, it’s an indication that your roof is vulnerable.
Shingles that are changing shape, especially those in the way of direct sunlight, indicate that your roof has aged and that it needs replacement. Look specifically for buckling, curling and cracking of shingles.
Be sure to check your gutters regularly. If you notice shingle particles in the gutter, your roof is in its last stages and needs immediate replacement.
Presence of Icicles
Icicles are those sharp, pointed formations that are caused when dripping water freezes. If you find icicles at the edge of your roof or gutters, it is an indication that your roof ventilation is not up to the mark.
Icicles can damage roofing materials and can weaken the entire roof. Damage can penetrate into the attic and walls as well.
Presence of Thick Moss Growth
The flowerless plant grows in the space between shingles. As it grows, it ends up into a thick mat like formation that traps in moisture, which will eventually damage the shingles.
With OzPix roof replacement, you can have algae-resistant shingles, which prevent the growth of moss thereby adding to the life of your roof.
Whether you are using a metal roof, colorbond roof, tile roof or any other type of roofing, the presence of any or all of the above signs is an indication that your roof is weak and needs attention.
