In some cases, roof damage can be easily seen even from the ground. But in other instances, the damage is almost invisible, and it can be hard, especially for an untrained eye, to spot the problem. This can be troublesome because the issue could already be spreading to other parts of your roof or home, and you still have no idea that it’s happening.
Here are a few common signs of roof damage that often go unnoticed.
Whistling Sounds in Your Home
It’s uncommon for strange noise, such as a whistling sound, to be associated with roof damage. You may think that the issue has something to do with improper sealing. But if you have already checked that aspect of your home, and you’re confident that your home is totally sealed, there’s a good chance that this whistling sound could be a sign of roof damage. Call up a roofer as soon as possible so that they can figure out the specific issue that needs to be addressed.
It’s easy to tell when a few shingles are missing from your roof. But if you have buckled shingles, you will need to take a closer look at your roofing to really see the damage. Since it’s not recommended to climb to your roof all by yourself, it would be best to have a professional inspect your roof.
Black Spots on the Roof
These dark spots could actually be mold, so you should have a roofer check your roof to confirm the problem. Oftentimes, homeowners shrug off such discolorations as mere cosmetic issues. But upon closer look, these black spots could mean more serious trouble.
