Here is a list of some of the early warning signs that you can stay alert for. You can stop a minor problem from becoming a major one.
Roofing and Siding Warning Signs
- Peeling wallpaper or paint, mold, or water damage in the house interior can indicate a leak in the roof or siding.
- Walk around the perimeter of the house and check for holes in the roof and gaps in the siding. If there is even one, this can be an entryway for bugs to set up home inside your home or water to seep through.
- As soon as lifted tiles and warped or rotted siding can be seen,then it is time to call a professional contractor. Only they will have the expertise to adequately assess the damage and the specialist tools to be able to fix it.
- If you see a sudden spike in your utility bills, it can be one of the first signs that your roof or siding is damaged.
- Mold, mildew, and fungi are the enemy or both siding and roofs. If you spot any of the above, then it is time to call in a professional contractor.
- If one tile or a single siding panel is loose, this can be easily fixed by calling a repair person. If two or more tiles and panels have lifted or moved, it could be an indication that a more serious problem is the cause.
- Even if your siding and roof are made from the highest quality materials, they will still need regular maintenance and repairs because of natural wear and tear, but especially after a heavy storm.
