Inspecting your own roof for signs of damage is something we should all do on a regular basis. After all, it can help yield financial rewards and prevent a small problem becoming a big pay out. On the  flip side however, many of us do not know what to look for when it comes to a healthy roof as every roofing company tends to talk about the signs of roof damage. In this blog, the team here at Valent Roofing are going to go over some of the signs of a healthy roof so that you can be sure how good of a shape your roof is in…

  • A roof that is made from shingles should exhibit the following characteristics in order for a homeowner to determine that their roof is healthy. For example, none of the shingles should be missing, they shouldn’t be stained and there should be no signs of shingle erosion.

 

  • If your exterior walls are consistently dry and clean, it is a sign that your roof is doing its job very well as wet walls usually indicate that that a roof is leaking somewhere.

 

  • The weather can have a drastic effect on a roof that isn’t healthy and will present itself in noticeable ways which is why inspecting your roof is very important. A roof that is not misshaped or dented is one that hasn’t been affected by hailstorms, strong windows and heavy snowfall. In order to maintain a healthy roof during winter, it is advised that you don’t allow several inches to sit for long periods of time as this may cause dents.

If your roof isn’t exhibiting the signs of a healthy roof, it could be time to call in the professionals as this may signal that your roof has a problems that needs addressing.
