While roofing problems brought on by storm damage will appear suddenly, most roofing troubles build up slowly over time. It is important that you are alert to signs that it may be time to have your roof maintained, repaired or replaced. This is the subject of a recent Popular Mechanics article entitled 8 Things Your Roof Is Trying to Tell You.

This article, which is presented as a slide show, demonstrates through pictures and text eight things you should look out for. These include:

  • Water spots on the ceiling
  • Water spots on exterior walls
  • Granules filling your gutters and clogging your downspouts
  • Cracking shingles
  • Cupping shingles
  • Missing shingles
  • Roof leaks with fluctuating temperatures
  • Dark stains on your roof

Learn more by about each of these eight signs as well as what they may be indicating by checking out the full article here.
