What are Common Visual Symptoms That May Indicate That It’s Time to Invest in a New Roof?

Algae Growth
Algae growth causes a dark discoloration on roofs. The algae is usually brown to black in color which results in a streaked, dirty looking rooftop.

Damaged Flashing
can be caused by improper installation of a new roof or Drying and cracking of an older roof. This can also can happen as a result of a settling foundation which can be detrimental to your roof.
Shingle Curling
This condition can be caused by improper nailing down of shingles or improper fasteners used in a previous installation. This may also occur due to poor ventilation or under-saturation of asphalt.
This can be caused due to excessive moisture in specific areas in your roof. Damage due to moisture can spread rapidly if left un-handled.
Shingle Buckling
caused by improperly installed felt or wrinkled underlay material. Buckling can be prevented in the future installation with the use of spacers and roof deck boards. Buckling can also lead to major roof deterioration.


How can I build equity in my home with a new roof or roof repair?

An old or damaged roof can cause huge headaches if not taken care of. Four out of five new homes are built with the average asphalt shingle roof which should last about 15 to 20 years. Metal, slate and tile roofs will last significantly longer. High winds and hail can cause considerable damage to even brand new roofs. If you live in an area where high wind storms regularly cause damage, you may want to consider Equity Roofing for a free consultation.

What should I look for inside my home if I suspect roof damage?

The following are a few things you as a homeowner can look for when inspecting inside the home for possible roof damage:

  • Places in your home where the roof deck may be sagging.
  • Signs of damp sheet rock or leaking in ceilings
  • Distinct dark spots and trails
  • Outside light showing through the roof
