As a homeowner, keeping your roof in top shape is important to your peace of mind. It’s also the best way to protect your property. The good news is, your roof will let you know when something isn’t right. The key is knowing what to look for. In our next few blogs, we are going to review signs that your roof needs help so you can get help and prevent the problem from getting too bad.


Water can leak through the windows, through cracks in the foundation, and through your roof. The roof is the most common place to find leaks.

The problem is, many people ignore little leaks because they don’t think it’s a big deal. Even these small leaks can cause significant damage. A little water is enough to cause mold and rot, which are difficult to remove.

Watch for trouble spots around chimneys, skylights, and shingles. Leaks usually start in the attic, so if you can’t get up there yourself, make sure you get a professional inspection. In fact, whether or not you can get up there, you should have a professional see your roof twice a year.
