Do you ever find yourself looking at your roof wondering when you'll have to bite the bullet and replace it? Well your not alone! A roof is one of the most vital parts to the "system" of your house, especially in the Great Lakes region, and the last thing you want to do is wait till it is too late. The repeating stress of mother nature is visible on a roof but to what extent? Here are a few signs we look for:
Cracking of Ridge Cap Shingles
Large patches of discoloration
Heavy amounts of shingle sediment in your gutters
Patches needing to be repaired
From your attic, assuming it is not covered in baffles, you should be able to see the bottom of your roof decking. Large stains on the bottom side mean that water is entering your roof at some point due to a bad roof.
