What are the most common causes to wear out my roof?
Wind, Hail, and UV rays from the sun are the most common causes of wear and tear to your roof. Over time, these elements can cause your roof to deteriorate, resulting in leaks or other damage.
What are the most common signs of a roof leak?
The most common signs of a roof leak are water stains on your ceiling or walls, missing or damaged shingles, and leaks during rains. Bubbling paint, sagging roof, or noticeable water bubbles are also key signs of a roof leak. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to contact a roofing professional right away to prevent further damage.
If I see a roof leak, what should I do?
Immediately contact a roofing contractor to perform an inspection. If there is dripping, it’s usually preferable to make a tiny drainage hole in the ceiling so that the water can drain and not soak your drywall, which will result in a more expensive repair later. In general, a quick response is the most important thing, the longer you wait, the more damage could be done, so schedule your FREE roof inspection ASAP.
How do I know if I need a new roof or roof repair?
It is dependent on several factors including the presence of wind damage, missing roofing, shiny shingles due to loss of granules and asphalt, number of leaks, presence of sagging, and the age of the roof. One of Roof MD’s trained roof inspectors will examine your roofing thoroughly and advise you on the best course of action.
When is the best time to repair a roof?
The best time for roof repair is when it is needed. Seasonally speaking there is a preferred time and our roof repair technicians are prepared to help in any weather.
