Signs You May Have Hidden Roof Damage

From the outside, your roof may look to be in great condition when compared to other neighboring roofs. However, appearances can be deceiving. Perhaps your view from the ground is concealing a serious issue growing just beneath your roof’s surface. To save yourself time, money, and stress, be on the lookout for these signs that could point to hidden roof damage.

Clogged Gutter

A healthy gutter system promotes proper water runoff by redirecting rainfall away from your home. If not regularly cleaned, your neglected gutters will clog from fallen leaves, sticks, and other debris. Backed-up gutters allow water to pool along the edges of your roof causing extensive structural damage such as soggy roofing, wood rot, leaks, and algae growth, as well as animal and insect infestation.

Broken or Missing Shingles

Roof shingles are the first line of defense against severe weather conditions such as rain, wind, heat, and fire. Designed to provide durable, overlapping protection, shingles can become cracked, frayed, or curled over time, leading to hidden roof damage. The appearance of broken or missing shingles could signify:

  • Water damage
  • Interior leaks
  • Mold, mildew, or fungus growth

Visible Leaks

The presence of wet floors, drips, or moist, discolored spots on your ceiling indicate that you have a leak in your roof. Unfortunately, if you see one leak, then chances are there are others. To avoid further water damage to the interior structure of your home, you should contact a roofing company immediately.
