Do you need a new roof? Look for these signs.
Many people don’t realize they have roofing problems until water starts to leak from the ceiling. It is very often hard to see sections of your roof from the ground. Also, one side of the roof may look fine but the other side that is out of sight may be extremely weathered and worn, especially if it is the side that gets the most sun exposure. After years of being exposed to rain, snow, ice, sun and wind, roof shingles can start to wear. Curling, peeling, and eventual disintegration of roof shingles can lead to permanent damage to your roof and, eventually, the overall house structure.
PROBLEM PREVENTION BY INSPECTION
To catch problems early – before they become costly headaches – you should contact a professional Pennsylvania roofing contractor like Master’s Roofing to conduct a thorough roof inspection every 3-5 years.
