Some of the most obvious signs of a roof in need are repair are the following:
Water spots on the ceiling in your home
Cracked, missing or damaged shingles
Roofing materials which have exceeded their warranty period
Excess shingle granules in storm gutters
Damaged or missing flashing
Roofing materials are buckling
Algae stains or moss growth
If you notice any of these items, it\’s important you have a roof inspection as soon as possible. The good news is, often times a roof inspection will reveal the need for a simple repair rather than replacing the entire roof system. Do not put off the inspection as this can lead to further damage to the integrity of your home.

Factors to consider when buying a roof
Once you\’ve determined you\’re in need a new roof system, there are a number of factors you\’ll need to consider. Make sure you take the time to ask questions and evaluate what your specific needs are based on your current situation. There isn\’t one solution that works for all homeowners.
Make sure the roofing materials you choose are acceptable by your current homeowners association as well as any local area building codes. Different counties and even some towns can have certain material requirements.
Don\’t immediately assume you should go with the longest warranty available. If you\’re not planning on being in your home for the length of the warranty, you\’re spending more money than needed. Also, make sure the materials company has a history of standing by their warranty. If they go out of business, you\’re warranty is worthless.
It\’s vital you have a certified roof inspector look at your roof for any possible damage which is covered by your homeowners insurance. This can save you a considerable amount of money and many homeowners don\’t know what to look for. We\’re experts in handling insurance claims and can help you with this process.
