Damaged Asphalt Shingles


Your roof's purpose is to prevent water, air, or ice from entering your home. Check the ceiling and walls of your home from the attic or top floor. Be on the lookout for sunlight coming through the roof. You should look out for water damage signs such as water spots, caving walls and ceilings, or walls with textured walls. Look out for signs of mold, mildew and algae growth. These are guests that can appear when moisture or water has gotten into your home. These red flags must be spotted immediately so that the damage will be repaired.


Your roof is meant to protect you from the harsh elements of nature but can also cause damage. Your roofing can be damaged by extreme weather conditions, severe temperatures, torrential rain, hail, snow, and high winds. The roof is your protection from the elements. It is important that you maintain it. If you want your roofing to last longer, make sure you clean it and empty the gutters. To prevent any damage, we recommend scheduling annual roof inspections.
