Look for These Signs that You May Need a New Roof

An aging or damaged roof can go unnoticed by homeowners if no obvious problems arise. Without water dripping from your ceiling or mold growing in your attic, you may not realize that the roof of your home is compromised.

The roofing experts at Infinity Home Improvement have assembled this list of “red flag” warning signs that your Michigan roof may be in trouble.

Caution! Climbing up onto your roof and checking for these signs yourself is dangerous, especially if the structural integrity is weakened. To avoid the hassle of breaking out your ladder and navigating your roof, contact a professional Michigan roofing company – Infinity Home Improvement – for a free roof inspection.

Here’s what we’ll be looking for:

  • Loose or missing shingle
  • Loss of granules from shingles (HINT: They’ll collect in your gutters!)
  • Excessive moss or algae growth
  • Loose flashing around chimney or vents
  • Gaps between roof edge and gutters
  • Rust spots or dents on metal roofing
  • Stains on exterior walls
  • Stains or darkening on attic ceilings
  • Bruises or cracks from previous hail damage
  • Build up of ice in gutters or along roof’s edge (“ice dams”)

If you think the health of your roof is compromised, don’t wait until it’s too late. Our Grand Rapids roofing experts will investigate for these warning signs and any other damage to your roof. We will then provide you with a full written report on the condition of your roof, along with our suggestions for action.
