Here at Downs Pest Control & Property Maintenance, we want to help you take the best possible care of your rental property, and that includes the roof. The roof is one of the most important structures in any building, so it’s important to keep yours in good condition. To help do that, our team has put together a list of signs that will tell you when you need roof repair.
- Damaged or Missing Shingles – If your shingles have started to curl up or crack, or if many of them have flown off your roof, you probably need roof repair. These signs indicate that the shingles are reaching the end of their lifespan and will need to be replaced soon.
- Shed Shingle Granules – Similarly, if you start to see lots of coarse black sand in your gutters, you also need roof repair. Those sand grains are actually granules of asphalt from your shingles and finding a lot of them in your gutters means that the shingles themselves are significantly worse for wear.
- Stains on the Ceiling or Walls – You can also see signs that you need roof repair on the inside of your home–specifically, if the ceiling or upper walls start to stain and discolor, you most likely have a leak.
- Leaky Attic – Lastly, if your attic develops a leak, the culprit is likely your roof. If this happens to you, we encourage you to call our team as soon as possible to get the expert roof repair services that you need.
