Don’t wait for disaster to strike, learn the signs of a failing roof in order to replace it in a timely manner.

Your roof doesn’t need to be complicated. By inspecting your roof, and identifying the beginning of a problem, you can prevent damages to your home, and protect your wallet. KTM Exteriors prides itself on knowing the ins and outs of roofs. That’s why we’re going to share with you some signs too watch out for in your roof.

 

  1. Curled shingle edges: As shingles age and are exposed to the elements the bottom edges can curl up and pucker.
  2. Cracking of shingles: Shingles may begin to crack and pieces may begin to fall off.
  3. Balding of shingles: Be on the lookout for smooth shingles. The granules that cover shingles can wear off over time. The granules can accumulate in your gutters, which can indicate a susceptibility to water damage.
  4. Moss growth: Found in areas of the roof where the sun doesn’t shine. This is a sign of moisture in your roof.
