When it comes to the health of your roof, never ignore anything that seems unusual. Even if you notice mystery problems that don’t seem to be a big deal, get it checked out! Small problems have the potential to become expensive problems. And sometimes, it doesn’t take much time! While there are some obvious signs that will obviously make you call your roofer, here are other signs in your home that might make you consider a roof inspection.
Not all roofing problems can be seen with the naked eye, which is why it’s a good idea to get annual inspections on your roof. In some cases, you may even be able to hear odd noises from your roof. If you hear dripping water, creaking noises, or anything else that is out of place, it’s time to call your roofer for an inspection.
How exactly does a warped window indicate a roofing problem? Often, windows will start to warp when there is moisture absorbed into your home’s foundation. When your home’s wooden frame retains excessive moisture, it starts to warp. This could be connected to your roof if you have an undetected roof leak. It could also be from a clogged gutter that is not properly draining. If that’s the case, then you should call your roofer for a roof inspection.
Just like warped windows, cracks in the walls can be from excessive moisture, or it can be from a sagging roof. If the foundation of your roof isn’t secure, then the weight of your roof can cause cracks in your walls. Alternatively, cracks in your wall’s paint can also be from moisture that is coming in from the roof or leaking into your foundation.
