Three Signs it’s Time to Hire a Battle Creek Roofing Contractor

It’s no secret that your roof provides necessary protection for you home from the elements and will require maintenance over time as damage or normal aging and wear and tear occur. In this post, we will look at three signs that it is time to hire the premier Battle Creek roofing contractor, Sherriff-Goslin.

Roof Age. If your roof is nearing twenty years of age, it’s a good time to start the process of shopping for a replacement roof. As mentioned above, no matter what shingles and other roofing materials you choose, they will deteriorate over time due to normal wear and tear. And, if you notice signs of age, such as splitting, peeling, cracking, or blistering, you should schedule a free roof inspection from Sherriff-Goslin as soon as possible.

Curling or Missing Shingles. There are a couple different ways for roofing shingles to show signs of curling caused by weathering. Clawing is when the edges of the shingles remain flat while the middle begins to pop up and cupping is when the edges of the shingles pop up and the middle remains flat. Missing shingles are easier to identify and should be addressed as soon as you see them.

Interior. Some of the signs of a failing roof are interior. To identify such problems, you need to go up to your attic to check for any roof sagging, dark spots, or signs of water leaks from the roof. These signs of water leaks can appear as soft, moist areas that show after a heavy rain. You should also check to see if there is any sunlight coming into the attic through the roof.

If you have noticed any of the issues listed above, it’s time to contact Sherriff-Goslin the premier Battle Creek roofing contractor serving Battle Creek, Albion, Gull Lake, Jackson, and more for a free roof inspection and estimate.
