Don’t get caught with sudden, costly repairs. Keep a close eye on your roof and learn how to spot problems before they severely impact your wallet with these danger signs.
By the time you notice water inside your home, your roof is most likely well past repair and it will require a full roof replacement. What you may not realize is that your roof was giving you signs it needed help before it started leaking. By knowing what signs
to look for, you can either repair the roof or have it replaced before it becomes an emergency repair.

2. Missing, cracked, or curled shingles.
If you see that your shingles are dry or practically break when touched, that means they have reached the end of their useful life and it’s time to invest in a new roof.
The flashing around your chimney consists of tar or cement. Once this deteriorates, you will need to replace it with a more durable, long-term solution like metal flashing.
6. Leaks in the Attic.
Take a look in the attic for signs of leaking. Ice damming can also cause water to enter the house if you don’t have an adequate shingle underlayment or if the flashing (the aluminum or steel used over roof joints, like chimneys and pipes) has deteriorated.
