Winter is the toughest time of year for a roof, even in mild Victoria, BC. With more rain falling during the winter months than during any other season, it is important to make sure that your roof is in good condition. Leaks can be damaging and costly, and so are better avoided than dealt with after-the-fact.
Here are three sure signs that it's time to call Poskitt Roofing because your roof is failing and in need of repairs:
Curling or Missing Shingles
If you scan your roof and see that your shingles are curling or otherwise bent out of shape, or if some shingles are missing altogether, then your roof has definitely seen better days. It is probably too old, has taken too much damage, or likely a combination of both.
Mold, Algae or Fungi Growth
While scanning for damage to your roof, you should also be on the lookout for signs of mold, algae, and fungi around your pipes and chimneys and between your shingles. These living organisms can cause significant damage to your roof and, if they are plentiful enough to be easily noticed in a cursory inspection, then they likely already have.
Moisture in the Attic & Water Spots on the Ceiling
One of the main purposes of a roof is to keep moisture out of the inside of your home, so you know there is a problem if moisture seems to be finding a way in. Condensation and moisture should not be a common occurrence in the attic, as they can cause your roof's support structures to begin rotting. Attic moisture can also lead to stained, sagging spots on the ceiling underneath. Finding the source of the moisture may be difficult, and is best left to a qualified roofing contractor.
