Are you wondering if your roof is still in good condition? With all the bad weather conditions plus the regular wear and tear, you roof could get damaged. Here are the five signs that you need to call your Charlotte, NC roofing contractor:

1. Ice builds up on your roof during winter

A warm attic can cause rapid melting and refreezing of snow, resulting in the buildup of ice that can harm the gutters and the roof. Your roofing contractor can inspect for a possible ventilation and insulation work in the attic.

2. Damage caused by hail storms

Hail that is at least 1 and one-fourth in total diameter or roughly the size of a half-dollar may damage your roof. Mineral deposits during a hailstorm can also cause downspouts, dents or dings from hail on your metal gutter, and leaks. Watch out for moisture or discolored patches or holes in the ceiling.

3. Missing or damaged shingles

Shingles that are buckling, crackling or bending may need to be replaced.  You should replace your damaged roof shingles before your home suffers from extensive damage.

4. Wet and saturated yard

Clogged or even damaged gutters can result to excessive water runoff which can harm your current foundations. If your ground seems to continue to be wet, then It’s possible that you have a gutter issue.

5.  Water stains on your roof deck

Check for water stains and damaged wood on the underside of the roof. Check the vents, plumbing pipes, and around the chimney too. You know you need a Charlotte roofing contractor if your roof is not completely sealed and you see daylight coming through the roof cracks.

What are you waiting for? If you see any of these signs of a need for roof repair, replacement or inspection, call your Charlotte roofing contractor.
