5 Warning Signs You Need a Knoxville Roofing Contractor
We at Roofing Crew urge you to examine your roof at least once a year. With a visual inspection of its condition, you will normally be able to plan ahead for any repairsthat will need to made by a Knoxville Roofer. Binoculars are a great way for you to do this as we advise you NOT to get up on the roof by yourself.
5 WARNING SIGNS YOUR ROOF NEEDS REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT:
Damaged Shingles. If your shingles have become loose, cracked, curled, broken, or missing, then they have arrived at the end of their life and unable to preserve and protect your home the way they were designed to.
Interior Water Damage. A sagging ceiling or stains on your ceiling or walls are indications that your roof is possibly leaking (this could also be caused by damaged or insufficient amounts of insulation) In most cases your roof is already on its way to costly damages by the time you become aware of a leak, so dont hesitate to have it inspected by a Knoxville Roof Repair professional ASAP.
Loose or Exposed Nails. Loose and/or exposed nails leave open holes and allow water to enter into your home causing premature damage.
Missing Granules. The granules on your shingles help to protect them from the weather and elements. If you notice a significant amount of granules are missing (usually found in your gutters), they may need to be replaced. A Knoxville Roofing Contractor knows exactly how to determine granular loss if you're having trouble identifying it on your own.
Damaged or Missing Flashing. Flashing is used when something such as a chimney, skylight or wall joins your roof. Water can easily penetrate into your structure when the flashing is damaged or missing.
If you have noticed any of the signs noted above then your roof most likely needs to be repaired or replaced, let one of our Knoxville roofing experts help you preserve your large investment and get your roof looking good & sustaining the elements again. Schedule an inspection today: (865) 919-4847.
