Common Roof Problems and Warning Signs to Address


Mejaro Inspection Services sees all kinds of issues with roofs, not only on the roof but in the attic or on finished ceilings inside the home.


Here are some items to watch for and things to make sure you address if you see them:


  1. Leaks: Water stains on the ceiling, wet spots on the walls, or the formation of mold and mildew are all signs of a leaky roof.

  2. Missing or Damaged Shingles: If you notice missing or curling shingles on your roof, it's a sign that they need to be replaced.

  3. Clogged Gutters: Blocked gutters can cause water to back up and damage the roof and eaves.

  4. Moss or Algae Growth: This can cause the shingles to deteriorate, and can also make the roof slippery and dangerous.

  5. Cracked or Blistered Shingles: This is a sign that the shingles are past their useful life and need to be replaced.

  6. Improper Flashing: Flashing helps to seal the areas where the roof meets walls or chimneys. If the flashing is not properly installed or has become damaged, it can lead to leaks.

  7. Ventilation problems: Insufficient ventilation can cause a buildup of heat and moisture in the attic, which can lead to mold growth, rot, and other issues.

Warning Signs to fix:

  • Sagging

  • Curled or buckled shingles

  • Missing or broken shingles

  • Water stains on the ceiling

  • cracked or blistering shingles

  • Excessive granules in the gutters

  • Rotting wood

  • leaks

It is important to inspect your roof regularly and address any issues as soon as they are noticed to prevent more costly repairs down the road. Check out our video regarding roofs problems.
