Vancouver Roofing Company Reveals the Warning Signs of a Failing Roof

Kitsilano Roofing, a Vancouver Roofing Company has Published an Article Outlining the Five Most Common Signs That Your Roof Needs Repair or Replacement

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 17, 2015) - Kitsilano Roofing, a roofing contractor in Vancouver, has recently released a blog with some helpful information for homeowners. While living in Vancouver offers many benefits, the damp weather can be hard on homes, and particularly roofs. To anticipate problems before they start, the blog outlines five common symptoms of a faulty roof. For more information, go to:

1) Pests Appear

If debris caused by heavy winds has struck your roof, it is quite possible it may have damaged the shingles. This gives pests an opportunity to enter and hunker down for the winter. If you start hearing rustling in the attic, there is a good possibility that something may have entered through a damaged roof.

2) Lifting Shingles

Lifted shingles are an immediate issue as this can allow water to penetrate the home. This can be caused by high winds or improper installation.

3) Curling Shingles

Moisture under the shingle or UV damage that has bypassed the protective granules can cause shingles to bow or curl. If you notice this problem above your gutters, it could be the result a poor quality starter strip.

4) Granule Loss

Over time the granules that protect your shingles from harmful UV rays may loosen or wash away from rain, wind or snow. An exposed shingle will deteriorate rapidly.

5) Algae Build Up

Moss on a roof can shorten its lifespan drastically. As moss grows, it can shift the shingles or divert water in unwanted directions. Moss also retains water, which can further compromise your roofing. However, this can typically be addressed with maintenance and cleaning.

The blog, concludes by suggesting that if you suspect damage, it's a good idea to pop up into your crawl space or attic on a rainy day and look for wet spots or leaks. If you're not comfortable doing this, then it's recommended you call a reputable roofing company.
