Over time, the harsh Idaho elements take their toll on your roof. Missing shingles, excessive granules, blow-off damage, and more all point to signs of common Boise roofing problems. That’s why Pacific Home & Patio would like to provide you with the following list of things to keep an eye out for when it comes to the integrity of your home’s roof.
Boise Roofing Problems
Interior Water Spots
A leaky roof is problematic because most people don’t realize they have one until they spot visible damage inside their homes. Furthermore, the source of a leak is often in a completely different area of a home from where water damage is seen. This, in turn, can further complicate the problem. While water spots inside your home don’t always mean you have a leaky roof, it’s important to schedule an inspection by a Boise roofing professional to make sure.
If you have an aging roof that is shedding excessive granules, this can be a sign of shingle deterioration. Granules protect your roof from the sun’s harsh UV rays. If they start falling off, your roof can become brittle and eventually crack. If you’ve noticed shedding granules, it’s important to contact a Boise roofing professional for an inspection.
Patchy, dark areas on your roof can be a sign of missing shingles. This can be due to damage caused by small animals or a damaged sealant strip. Usually, shingles have sealant underneath that holds them in place. Once your roof becomes old and brittle, this sealant starts to fail, and shingles can loosen and fall off.
High winds can damage the roof of your home by blowing off areas of it completely. Blow-off damage usually occurs in a specific area of your roof that was exposed to high winds. Felt and roof sheathing can also be blown off by severe enough winds.
While you may think it’s a good idea to patch or apply another quick fix to repair your roof, it’s important to think long-term about your roof to avoid future problems. Instead of attempting to do it yourself, it’s important to hire a Boise roofing professional to inspect your roof and fix any loose shingles or replace the roof itself. Proper fixes protect other vulnerable shingles around any damaged ones.
