Sometime it is hard to tell if you need a new roof until it is too late. You may not know until your roof starts leaking or there is severe damage. The first place you may see signs is the place you spend the most time, inside your home. Here are a few tell tale signs you may see inside that it may be time to consider installing a new roof.
Places where the roof deck is sagging
If you have vaulted ceiling or easy access to an attic, you may see the roof deck starting to sag. This is a sign of water damage from water leaking in or possible damage from the roof being hit by something.
Signs of water damage or leaking
If you have water spots starting to form on your ceiling or water actively dripping down from your ceiling, this is a sure sign that it is time to consider a new roof for you home. In some cases it may be possible to patch this there is minimal damage.
Outside light showing through the roof
Needless to say. If you can see the outside from the inside of your home and it’s not through a window or skylight, it is time for a new roof. A hole in your roof gives access to the elements as well as animals to be able to enter your home.
Excessive Energy Bills
If you start to see energy bills that are much higher than usual, your roof should be one of the first places you look for the problem. Because heat rises, old insulation or a damaged/leaky roof could be the culprit for your home not being energy efficient.
