When It Comes to Shingle Roofs, We’ve Got You Covered
You can trust Vista Roofing, Inc. with your shingle roof, whether it needs to be installed, repaired or inspected. Shingle roofs are the most common type of roof, so we’ve got an extensive amount of experience with them! There is no task too big or challenging for our certified specialists.
Advice for Homeowners With a Shingle Roof
If there is one message that we think every one of our residential clients should take to heart, it is this: keep foot traffic on your home’s shingle roof to an absolute minimum. Even the most well-maintained and regularly inspected shingle roof can be undone by frequent foot traffic that damages the shingles.
Whether it is to repair a satellite dish or rescue a lost kitten, we understand that from time to time, it may be necessary to get on top of your home’s roof. However, if these visits become too regular an occurrence, there is a very real chance that your shingles’ lifespan will be reduced considerably. Don’t make this mistake – stay off your roof!
Signs Your Shingles Need Replacing
If your shingle roof is less than 10 years old, you might think that there is no need for an inspection. However, it’s possible that your roof has aged prematurely and may need to be replaced. One of the added benefits of having your shingle roof inspected regularly is that it allows us to detect any problems that exist. Some of the most obvious indicators that we will look out for include:
- Missing shingles
- Broken or lifted shingles
- Excessive shingle granule loss
- Areas of hail damage
- Mold growing on the roof
- Water leaking through the roof into the attic
- Daylight coming through the roof when looking into the attic
