Here are the Top 10 Things to Look for:

1. Missing roof covers: missing shingles, tiles or other roof covers expose your roof deck and allow for significant future damage.

2. Damaged roofing materials: Damage on the roofing materials is a sign that your roof’s life cycle has come to an end. Replacing your roof before damage ensues could save you thousands of dollars.

3. Loose Materials and Wear: Loose material or wear around chimneys, vents, pipes or other penetrations, require immediate attention.

4. Moisture, Rot or Mould: Note that wet spots may not be directly under your faulty roof sheet or tile; water can travel down to its lowest spot before it drips. Mould, fungi and bacteria can grow quickly — within 24 to 48 hours of a water-related problem.

5. Attic Issues: some of the biggest tell-tale signs that your roof needs repair or replacement are seen from the inside. We will inspect your attic space to look for places where the roof deck is sagging, signs of water damage or leaking, dark spots and trails, outside light showing through the roof. Disconnected venting, condensation and blocked soffits are common issues found in the attic.

6. Chimney Damage: Cracking or crumbling and loose chimney flashing is a very common cause of leaks around chimneys.

7. Skylight Flashings: loose skylight flashing is another common culprit for leaks.

8. Animal Infestation: We Will check for signs of critters trying to chew their way through your roof. Once they get in you will need a wildlife professional to get and keep them out.

9. Eave’s trough Issues: Proper water mitigation around your home can save you a world of problems like flooding, leaks and mould.

10. Warping Roof Deck: If the roof lines are starting to look uneven or the roof deck is starting to sag you will need to call a roofing professional to do a thorough attic inspection. Common causes for warping roof lines are sagging trusses or thin plywood used for decking.
