Seeing whether you need roof repairs or not isn’t always easy. Sure, if your ceiling collapses and water bursts through, flooding your home, you’re not going to sit around simply thinking about calling a roofer. You’re going to get off your behind, quick smart!

But the need for roof repairs isn’t always that obvious. While there are many signs that your roof may potentially need repairs, today, we’ll go through 3 major ones. Let’s ask the experts at Royce Roofing to get the lowdown!

1) Roof leaks

We know what you’re thinking. Anyone can spot roof leaks. You’ll see water dripping from the roof and know immediately that something’s wrong! Well, not necessarily. Water dripping from the ceiling is a big indicator that your roof has issues, but a lot of the time, your roof probably had a leak months before the water started trickling and you didn’t notice it.

Roof leaks can be spotted by regular inspections of your ceiling, so that you can do something about them before they start flooding your home. Look for slightly darker patches of ceiling where water has pooled up, and check for signs of water stains on your walls too – these will run from the top of the wall to the bottom. If you suspect your roof has leaks, then you can’t hesitate to call a roofer. Waiting around will just lead to further problems!

2) Gutter spillage

Your gutters are supposed to divert water into the drain or your rainwater tank, so if water is spilling out of them every time it rains, you know you’ve got a problem. This can either be a sign that your gutters are clogged with leaves, dirt and debris, or that they’ve become rusted.

Either way, this problem needs solving right away. If your gutters aren’t functional, then the water spills onto the ground in front of your home, seeping into your foundation, which can eventually cause foundation issues if left for long enough. To avoid the tens of thousands of dollars of foundation repairs, simply call a roof repairer to fix or clean out your gutters!

3) Faded appearance

Roof tiles looking a little faded, weathered, cracked or just shabby in general? This can also be a sign that your roof needs repairing. A roof restoration can fix a dilapidated roof, featuring a roof clean, tile repair, valley iron replacement and fresh coats of paint.
