Subtle Signs You May Have a Roof Leak

Do you have a roof leak? You could have one and not even know about it. A leaky roof isn’t just an inconvenience – it can lead to major damage inside your home. Water that gets in through the roof can lead to mold and mildew, compromised structural integrity of your home, and damage to your attic and ceilings. Here are some signs you may have a roof leak:

Missing Shingles

Whether from a severe storm, high winds, or age, missing shingles mean your roof could be leaking. The shingles are the barrier to the elements, and if one or more are missing, your home is vulnerable to water leaks and damage.

Roof Granules on Your Sidewalk or Driveway

Asphalt roof shingles have a coating of granules that help make them strong and protective. If there is damage to the shingles or they are beginning to break down, those granules will start to come off and get washed down to the gutter, sidewalk, and driveway. If you see these, it’s time for a roof inspection.

Signs of Water Damage in Your Attic

You probably don’t go in the attic very often, but it’s a good idea to at least peek up there from time to time. Take a look at the ceiling and joists to check for water damage, darkened wood, sagging insulation, or mold. If you notice any of these signs, call a roofing professional right away. 

It can be hard to tell if your roof is leaking. Keep an eye out for the above signs that you have roof damage, but it’s also a good idea to have your roof inspected annually. For any questions or concerns regarding a roof leak or for professional inspections, repair, and replacement, contact the experts at Premiere Roofing.

3 Things You Should Know About Proper Roof Maintenance Before Buying a New Home

Buying a new home is exciting and stressful, and the last thing on your mind is proper roof maintenance. But the roof is a critical piece of the process. Here’s what you should know about proper roof maintenance before you sign on the dotted line.

  1. Include the Roof in the Inspection

You can overlook some things, like bad paint colors or an outdated bathroom, but don’t overlook a bad roof. During the inspection, it can be easy to rush through things to get to the closing without a hitch, but it might be worth hiring a roof inspector before you sign off on the home inspection report. Home inspectors have the training to look at every area of the home, but they can’t be experts on everything. It’s worth your while to have a trained roofing professional look at the roof before you buy the home.

  • The Roof May or May Not be a Deal Breaker

If a potential property has an atrocious kitchen, it might be a deal-breaker. But most homebuyers don’t think of a poorly maintained roof in the same way. Roof replacement can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000 or more. A roof that’s in bad shape doesn’t need to be a deal-breaker if you love the rest of the home, but it can be a point of negotiation for a better price on the property.

  • Get Roof Replacement Information

Before you buy a new home, especially one that is over 10-years old, be sure to collect information and documentation on prior roof replacement. You need to know when it was last replaced, what company did the work, the materials they used, and any warranty information available. This will give you information on potential roof maintenance you could be facing.

Don’t let the excitement, stress, and long to-do lists of buying a new home distract you from one of the most important elements – the roof. For all the information you need on proper roof maintenance and inspections when buying a new home, contact the team at Premiere Roofing today.
