The three most commonly damaged areas of your residential roof

Normal wear and tear, strong winds, and torrential rain may all cause damage to your roof. While damage can, of course, occur at any portion of your roof, there are three specific places that are most vulnerable, and thus regular visual inspection is suggested to spot problem areas before they become serious:

  • Shingles – Shingles serve as the roof’s outermost layer of protection against the elements. Curled, broken, or missing shingles can leave the layer beneath more prone to damage and rotting. You can visually inspect shingles from the ground by using a pair of binoculars. You may also look for missing or broken pieces of shingles on the ground
  • Gutters – Debris may accumulate in the gutter and cause water not to drain properly from the roof to the ground. This may cause a myriad of different problems, such as leaks from water pooling and compromised roof structure
  • Flashing – Flashing is any material used to seal the points at which where the roof has been interrupted, such as around the chimneys and wall constructions. If you cannot inspect your roof’s flashing from the ground, you can check for any water tracks on your ceiling or walls, which may indicate a damaged flashing
