The roof is one of the most critical parts of a building, but many people do not know the condition of their roof. A roof that is in great condition will protect the building from the elements, increase the value, and help it be more efficient.
A roof is susceptible to damage and wear over time and will require roof restoration. It is imperative to catch problems quickly to make roof restoration possible. There are some signs to which you should pay attention that indicate repairs are needed. If they go unattended, you may need a roof replacement.
Leaks and Water Damage
Leaks and water damage are huge indicators that you may need a roof restoration. Even the smallest drip from your roof is a sign you should not ignore. Over time, the roofing materials wear and need replacement. In addition, your roof may have sustained damage that requires repair. If you see puddles, water spots, water stains, or streaks, you should contact Pinnacle Construction to have a professional assess any damage to your roof.
Pay Attention to Your Roofline
When you have noticed there is something different about your roofline, you want to pay attention. A sagging roofline is a definite sign of concern for you. Your roofline should always be straight. If you see curving, dipping, or sagging, you should find out why. It could be an issue with the framing because the roof deck is soaked with water. If you notice sagging of your roof, you want to look for other problems like damaged shingles, leaks, and other water damage.
In addition, you may have trapped moisture, rotting boards, or sagging spots. A sagging roofline must be addressed as soon as possible because your roof could cave in if left unattended. Another sign of trapped moisture is moss or mold in a shady spot of the roof.
If you notice any of the roof problems mentioned here, you may need a roof restoration. You should contact the professionals at Pinnacle Construction to inspect and assess the condition of your roof to determine if you need a roof restoration.
