Common Signs of Roof Rot

Rot is a particularly common issue in wet areas that consistently deal with wild weather and swinging extremes. Sound familiar? There’s a reason we’re so practiced in rot repair! The most important thing you can do is detect rot early on, which is why we want to point out these common signs:

  • Missing roof shingles or loose roofing materials. Shingles becoming flimsy and discolored, ceramic tile missing, or peeling on a metal roof’s surface are all signs that rot is settling in.
  • Moss and algae growth on the roof. Algae and moss don’t tend to grow in places they’re not wanted. If they’re taking hold on your roof, that means moisture is sticking around longer than it’s supposed to, which tends to mean water damage and rot.
  • Signs of water damage in the home. Keep watch for soaked insulation and dark patches or weak spots developing in walls or on ceilings. Rot destroys roofing materials and bends flashing, allowing water to get where it isn’t intended to go.
  • Buckling or waving. Buckling or roof material “waving” is a very serious issue and tends to require more than a simple repair. Always keep an eye on the pitch and formation of your roof. Any changes mean you need to have the roof inspected!
