On The Other Hand…
If you are not afraid of heights and feel this is something you can do yourself, here is how to determine if you need roof repair.
To begin with, start in your attic.
Grab a flashlight and head up to the highest point inside your home. Look for light streams coming through the ceiling of the attic.
This is a good indicator that you may need to repair your roof.
While you are up there, use your flashlight to discover any wet spots. These will most likely appear as dark circles or streaks on the ceiling of the attic.
By the way… these wet spots are indicative of leaks coming from your roof.
Helpful tip: Remember that water runs downhill and if you have a leak, it may run to the low spots in your attic. So check these areas for moisture.
If you find a leak, the problem is usually up higher on your roof.
Now, take a trip through your home, checking ceilings and walls for damp areas. These will most likely appear as brown or “rusty” looking spots are streaks.
Especially check in upstairs bathrooms around vents or skylights.
Off To The Rooftop…
With ladder in tow, brave the heights and head up on to the rooftop.
Begin by taking an overall look at your roofing materials. Do you see missing shingles or tiles? If so, this is where a leak may be occurring. Do the materials look in good shape? Or are some curled up and cracked?
If you see damage, this too could mean that you need roof repair.
Check your gutters. Are they free and clear so that the water can run freely from the rooftop? Or are they full of debris and you can see pooling water? The gutters should not have pooling water as this could lead to a leaky rooftop.
Finally, check the flashing that seals vents, chimneys and skylights. If there are pieces missing, this could be the culprit of a leaky roof.
These are some hints that you might need to have your roof looked at by a professional.
