By keeping an eye out for these warning signs of a bad roof and addressing any issues promptly, you can safeguard your home and ensure peace of mind for years to come.

Exterior Warning Signs

1. Deformed Shingles

Damaged shingles are a sign that your shingles need to be replaced. Procrastinating may damage your roof’s integrity, so if your shingles are curling or crooked, think about an inspection!

2. Mossy Roof

While moss or algae growth may seem harmless, it can actually indicate excess moisture on your roof, which can lead to damage over time.

3. Visible Damage

Damage can occur from any weather related event, such as storms, snow, or hail. Make sure to look at your roof after any severe weather.  Any damage should be inspected and repaired right away. Depending on your homeowner’s insurance, your roof damage could be covered, so be sure to check your policy!

Interior Warning Signs

1. Leaks and Water Stains

Perhaps the most obvious sign of a bad roof is water infiltration into your home. Check for water stains on your ceilings, walls, and attic, especially after heavy rain or snow. Even small leaks can cause significant damage over time, so it’s crucial to address them promptly to prevent mold growth and structural issues.

2. Peeling Paint

Peeling or bubbling paint inside is a sign that your roof may be bad. Often times it signifies a water leak or poor ventilation.

3. Higher Than Normal Bills

High heating and cooling bills may also indicate your roof needs replacing. If your bills seem higher than normal, you may be losing heat or cold air through your roof.
