Is It Time for a New GAF Timberline Roof?
Early Fall is a good time to inspect your roof, particularly if you live in areas of the country that experience extreme weather … like Indiana. You can inspect your roof yourself by either climbing up on it or by using binoculars from the ground.
Tell-Tale Signs Your Rough Needs Replacing
Here are some tell-tale signs that your roof may be due to have new shingles installed.
- A leak in the attic.
After a strong storm or wind-driven rain, take a look in the attic for signs of leaking. It could indicate damaged shingles, inadequate underlayment or deteriorated flashing.
- Blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint.
Moisture trapped in the house due to poor ventilation can cause exterior paint to peel and blister.
- Stains on interior ceilings and walls – mold or mildew growth.
Stains, or worse, mold can be caused by leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside.
- Exterior decay in sheathing and/or siding.
Excess moisture can also contribute to decay.
- Missing, cracked, or curled shingles.
Dry, cracked, or easily broken shingles have reached the end of their useful life, and it’s time to invest in a new roof.
- Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof.
Vegetation, fungus, mold, or algae growth can cause dark stains on your shingles. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need a new roof, but if you do choose to replace your shingles look for ones that offer stain protection.
- Excessive energy costs.
Inadequate ventilation can possibly drive up your household cooling costs by trapping hot air in the attic. Attic moisture can also drip into your insulation, reducing its effectiveness.
