Common Roofing Issues

Years of exposure to the North Texas elements can take a toll on your roof. Fluctuations in indoor temperature, missing shingles and water shingles are all signs that point to roofing problems. It is important to keep an eye out for these common issues before the problem gets worse. Trust WeatherShield Roofing and Sheet Metal to defend your investment and protect your roof. Here are three of the most common roofing issues that you could face as a homeowner: 

Excessive Granules in Your Downspout

Granules on shingles protect your roofing system from the sun’s harmful UV rays. On a new roofing system, granules in the gutters are not a cause for concern, as loose granules fall off during installation. If you have an older roofing system, shedding granules could be a sign that your shingles are deteriorating. When granules start falling off, your shingles become brittle and can eventually crack. If you notice your gutters are not as efficient lately, there might be granules and other debris blocking the flow of water. Schedule your FREE roofing inspection with WeatherShield today. 

Interior Water Spots

The source of water leaks is often in a totally different part of your home from where you see water damage. Roof leaks are problematic because you may not realize you have one until there is obvious damage in your home. Water typically travels along your roof panels before dripping onto your insulation and leaving water spots on your ceiling. Be sure to schedule a FREE inspection with WeatherShield Roofing before the problem gets worse.

Missing Shingles

You may think missing shingles is the most obvious form of roofing issues, but you may not notice it as much as you think. Dark, patchy areas on your roof can be a sign that some of your shingles are missing. This can either be due to small animals running up and down your roof or a damaged sealant strip. Shingles have sealant that holds them in place, and once they become old and brittle the sealant starts to fail and your shingles can come loose.
