Roofing 101

You may be asking yourself, "What should I look for when inspecting my roof to see if it's bad?" The following information should help you.

Warning Signs of a Bad Roof

Bare Spots - This is the surface of the shingles on your roof that has worn off. The results are spots of missing shingles and, a lot of times, an accumulation of granules in your gutters.

Curling - This occurs when the corners of your shingles curl upward. Curling makes your roof highly susceptible to wind damage as well as ice. This usually comes from moisture build-up in the attic of older homes.

Broken Shingles - This can be caused by strong winds and snow. When you have broken shingles, your roof may develop obvious leaks.

Clawing - This occurs when your shingles curl in a downward motion. Clawing can make your roof highly susceptible to strong storm conditions such as wind, ice and hail.

Buckling - This is recognizable by a waviness in the shingles. There will usually be a line of buckling going up the roof slope. Buckling causes tabs to be exposed and makes it easy for them to be ripped off by winds. This is often caused by poor ventilation in the attic.
