Recognizing the Signs of Hail Damage to Your Roof

One of the more misunderstood weather phenomena to appear every now and then in the Bethesda area is hail, which is commonly produced during seasonal thunderstorms. Since hail has the potential to harm your roof, it's important that you learn how to recognize signs of hail damage to this structure. Begin inspecting for hail damage by examining metal structures on the roof, such as skylights and flashing. If you see numerous indents, then you can be sure that hail took its toll on these materials. Next, inspect the shingles for cracking, missing stones or granules, and indentations.

Should you stumble upon very obvious signs of hail damage throughout your roof, then be sure to contact your roofing contractor here at Roof Solutions to schedule a more in-depth roof inspection. Our roof repair team can analyze the damage to see just how deep the hail penetrated the surface before speaking to you about various methods for restoring the roof.

Taking the time to assess your roofing options can help you avoid long-term maintenance expenses and maintain resale value. Take a look at this video guide to learn more about your roofing options and the pros and cons of each.

Signs It May Be Time to Invest in a New Roof

Signs It May Be Time to Invest in a New Roof

Depending on the material with which it was made, the roof above your head right now was designed to last for anywhere from 15 to 100 years. This estimated lifespan is based on the assumption that your roof is properly maintained and does not encounter any weather for which it is not graded. If your roof is more than a decade old and you notice any of the following signs, the time has most likely come for you to invest in a roof replacement.

Missing Shingles
Shingles break and get blown off of roofs during storms. This is a fact of life for owners of homes with shingled roofs. However, it is not normal for a roof that is in a good state of repair to lose several shingles several times in a year. If a shingle or two gets damaged, the damaged shingles should be promptly replaced, but a new roof may not be necessary. If your roof is missing a lot of shingles, however, it is a sign that your roof’s base sheet is missing or torn and needs to be replaced.

Worn Shingles
If your roof is littered with shingle fragments or your gutters have been clogged by shingle granules, it is almost certainly time for a roof replacement. Contact a roofing contractor for an at-home assessment at your earliest convenience.

Roof Rot
If moisture has had an evident toll on your wood or composite roof and it is starting to look reedy, you need a new roof. You also need to have your home inspected for mold.

Damage Indoors
Since most of us do not venture out onto our roofs very often, ceiling damage is often the first sign a homeowner sees that a roof replacement may be necessary. If your ceiling is blistering or dark; damp spots have appeared on your ceiling and walls; or a crack has emerged that allows you to see straight through to the sky, you should have your roof inspected in a timely manner.

Replacing a roof is something most homeowners only ever have to do a handful of times. If you are in need of roof replacement services and your prize quality above all else, a roofing contractor from Roof Solutions can provide you with exactly what you need.

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters

Clean Your Gutters

Gutters are essential to protecting your home’s landscaping and foundation from water damage. But if they are clogged or damaged, they can actually be harmful to your roof and the rest of your home. To ensure that they work properly, make sure that your gutters are cleaned regularly throughout the year.

Gutters should be cleaned at least four times a year to address various kinds of debris buildup. Once a season ensures that leaves, grass, blossoms, and other materials don’t fill up your gutters and weigh them down. Heavy gutters can promote roof rotting, and may even cause damage below when they fall from being pushed over capacity.

For professional roof maintenance services in the Bethesda area, contact the expert roofers at Roof Solutions. Our contractors provide comprehensive roof maintenance, repair, and replacement services throughout Bethesda. Call us at (301) 358-2688 to schedule gutter cleaning services today.
