6 Signs your roof might need repair or replacement

Danger signals of a failing roof.

Does your attic show signs of leakage after a severe rain storm?  Although its mid-summer, this might not be a new problem. The damage may have occurred after months of ice build up, or after a long hard winter. The ice and snow accumulates in ice dams and if inadequate shingles aren't doing the job it's time to call an expert roofing company, Home Base Improvement & Construction.

Avoiding these signs of damage can cause interior and exterior paint to blister and peel. High humidity combined with poor attic ventilation are top suspects.


If you notice mold and mildew stains on your ceilings and walls it might be more then just time for a new paint job, it could be harmful to your health! Black mold spores are toxic and if inhaled can cause a long list of respiratory illnesses. This is something to consider when babies, children, or the elderly share living space with you.

Are your shingles cracked and curling, or worse, missing all together? This happens when you neglect your roof afters years of bad weather.

Do you notice, dark, discolored, or dirty-looking areas on your roof? If so, the shingles are wearing off their granules and are losing their protection, most the time this occurs from an aging roof.

Are you experiencing a spike in high energy cost? While many factors may come into play for this to happen, chances are inadequate ventilation is trapping hot air in the attic causing your A/C to work harder. Have no worries, Home Base Improvement & Construction is here to help you answer any roofing questions you might have.
