The Home Wise Pros are dedicated to educating the public and our customers. These frequently asked questions will help shed light on basic issues you might experience with your roof. If you do not see answers to your questions, contact our office for more information.
While we do not recommend that you scale your roof for an inspection, you can review your roof from the curb or while circling your home. During a short walk, you might notice:
•Shingles that seem to be out of place
•Aggregate gravel, sand, or dust on the ground
•The appearance of standing water on the roof
•Sagging on the surface of the roof
•Apparent tears in the flashing
•Broken seals around pipes and vents
The exterior appearance of your roof might indicate that you need a replacement, but your attic also gives you an idea of the issues you are facing. If possible, climb in your attic or look up to the ceilings on your top floor to find signs of a deteriorating roof, including:
•Water stains on the ceiling
•Apparent water stains or runoff on exterior walls
•Obvious leaks in the attic
•An aggressive draft
Spending money to repair your roof once or twice a year will not save money over the life of the roof. Replacing the roof gives you access to modern technology, better construction, and customization options.
Asphalt shingles are the industry standard. While we understand that you have several options (ceramic, wood, metal, slate,) asphalt shingles are:
•Durable and versatile
•Manufactured in several colors and shapes
•Capable of carrying several different textures
•Manufactured in several sizes
