The safety and comfort of your family and employees is important and having a roof you can rely on is essential. While Florida is a beautiful, sunny, and warm state to live, heavy storms and the occasional hurricane can cause damage to your roof. Keeping a close eye on your roof and taking care of any roofing issues during the early stages can help home and business owners prevent costly roof repairs. Below you will see five interior signs of a roof problem.
Signs that you may have a roof problem
Stained or Sagging Roof: If you notice yellow stains or a sagging roof this may be a sign of a roof leak or poor ventilation. Without proper ventilation the lifespan of your roof will be reduced, and you could potentially face an expensive roof replacement project.
Musty/Moldy Odors: It only takes a small leak to lead to mold growth. Mold grows in areas with high moisture, therefore if you smell a moldy or musty odor you should assume there is moisture present.
Water Presence: It’s safe to say if you see water dripping from your ceiling you most likely have a roof problem. Water in other areas such as the corners or floors can also indicate a roofing issue as the water can travel through a building or home. It’s always better to be safe than sorry and have a reliable roofer check your roof anytime you see water.
Ceiling or Attic Damage: If the ceiling paint changes color or expands you may have a roof problem. Also, any light that passes through your attic is sure indication you have a roofing issue.
Higher Energy Costs: If you notice a rise in your energy bills there is a chance you may have a roof problem. A well-insulated, sturdy roof will allow a building to maintain its temperature without placing undue stress on the HVAC system.
The signs above can easily be identified by the average homeowner. It doesn’t take roofing knowledge or a ladder to notice the items listed above. By being aware of these interior signs you can potentially save money on your next roof repair/replacements.
