Five Signs You Need to Call a Charlotte Roofing Contractor

 

When to call a Charlotte roofing contractor: Has fall and winter been rough on your roof?  Do you wonder if it’s time for some roof repair or roof replacement?  There are five easy signs to recognize that it’s time to call a roofing contractor.

Missing or damaged Shingles

If your shingles are buckling, crackling or bending those shingles will most likely need to be replaced. The National Roofing Contractors Association advises that you replace damaged roofing shingles before your home experiences damage that is more extensive. Making a small roof shingle repair can save you from a more costly repair later.

If your roof has lost several rows of shingles, it may be time for a new roof. Also, look to see if the flashing is damaged or has pulled away from the roof.  Flashing is the sheet metal that is placed over joints of roof and wall construction to prevent water seeping into the house and causing damage. The major cause of residential roof leaks is a fault in the roof flashing.

 

Times of heavy ice buildup

If you had a lot of ice on your roof this winter, its time to call a roofing contractor to come inspect your roof.   Warm attics cause rapid melting and refreezing of snow. This produces heavy ice that can harm the gutters and the roof.  Your Charlotte roofing contractor may recommend ventilation and insulation work in the attic to fix this issue.

A wet, soggy yard

If you have gutters that are clogged or damaged, excessive water runoff can harm your foundations.  Walk around the perimeter of your house and inspect the ground.  If the ground seems to stay wet, you probably have a gutter issue and need a gutter repair or replacement, as soon as possible, before the run off causes damage to your home’s foundation.

Gutters that are loose

If your gutters are pulling loose from the strain of ice, snow, leaves or other debris, it’s time to repair or replace the gutters. Your roofing contractor can tell you if you need work done on your gutters. You can prevent water damage to your home by maintaining your gutters.  There are also several solutions your Charlotte roofing contractor can offer to you to protect your gutters from excessive leaves building up in the gutters.

 

Water stains on the roof decking

Go to your attic and check the underside of the roof. Look for water stains and damaged wood. Look at the plumbing pipes, vents and around the chimney.  If any daylight is coming through the roof cracks, and your roof is not completely sealed, it’s time to call a Charlotte roofing contractor.

 

What if I’m not sure if my roof needs repair or replacement?

Sometimes roof shingles can become damaged and start to curl.   Roof shingle curling needs repair, the curled roof shingle will makes your roof more susceptible to wind damage. It’s important to contact your Charlotte roofing contractor to get an estimate.

Causes of Roof Shingle Curling: The roof shingle curling action can be caused by moisture on the bottom or underside of the roof shingle. Moisture can build up in the attic and cause wetting and drying cycles in the roof shingles.

Another cause of roof shingle curling can be inadequate ventilation.  Inadequate ventilation causes heat and moisture to be entrapped in the attic.  This problem will eventually penetrate the roof and cause roof shingle curling.

Sometimes the roof shingle curling comes from the weather gets cooler.  If the roof shingles only curl in cooler weather, it is commonly called “Winter Shingle Curling.”  This is when the corners of the shingles slightly curl up from the deck of the roof when cold, and then lay back down, flat, when the weather is warmer.  This problem is most common when it is cool and moist, and happens most during damp, winter conditions when frost forms on the top surface of the roof shingles.  The curling happens when the top surface contracts, while at the same time, the underside of the shingle receives a small amount of passive heat from the attic space. This happens because the underside of the roof shingle is flat against the roof and receives the indoor attic heat more easily.  The variation of temperature between the top side of the roof shingle and the bottom side of the roof shingle will result in some roof shingle curling.

Roof Shingle Curling can also be caused by applying wet shingles on a dry day, or dry shingles on a wet day. Nails that pop out of the roof and the roof shingle can also cause roof shingle curling.

Sometimes Roof Shingle Curling is also called “fish mouthing.  The word “fish mouthing” refers to the buckling of the front edge of the roof shingle.  This action is usually a random pattern on the roof and although it does not usually affect the durability of the shingle, it should be addressed at some point.

Solutions for repairing your Charlotte roof shingles: There are solutions to repairing your roof shingles if they are curling. By improving the air circulation in the attic, you can occasionally stop the roof shingle curling.  This is a simple process and will keep you from costly and time-consuming roof shingle repairs.
