Signs a Roof Requires Repairs
Although today’s roofing systems are designed to last for 20 years or more, any roof can become damaged throughout its life. When roof damage occurs, it can result in many issues, ranging from leaks to structural damage. Identifying the signs of damage early is key to preventing severe problems from developing.
Common signs that a roof needs to be repaired include:
- Damaged or curled shingles
- Mold, moss, or algae growth
- Loose or missing shingles
- Discoloration of the roof
- Rafters are bending or sagging
- Granules in the gutter
- Sunlight coming through the roof
- Damage around skylights or chimneys
- High energy bills
- Interior leaks in attics or on ceilings
Spotting the signs that a roof needs to be repaired can save you a great deal of money. Early repairs will not only ensure that a roof is fully capable of protecting a home but also extend its life.

I can not say enough about this company from the initial estimate to completion! Terry came out to evaluate the project and was very friendly and efficient. David, the project manager, and Wilfred’s crew were amazing! They not only did a great job replacing our roof but left our property in the same condition they found it. I would recommend Superior Roofing to anyone for roof repairs.Jamie S.
How Fast Does Mold Grow After a Roof Leak?
One of the symptoms of a roof leak is mold. When a roof has an issue that allows water intrusion into the home, mold can begin to grow on multiple surfaces, such as trusses, drywall, plywood, and tile. As the mold grows, it can break down wood and other materials, leading to both cosmetic and structural damage. Exposure to mold can also be dangerous to people’s health.
Several factors can affect the speed of mold growth, including temperature and humidity, types of surfaces affected, the species of mold, and the presence of mold spores. Generally, mold can start to develop within 24 to 48 hours following a surface’s first contact with water. Mold spores are not immediately apparent and can take 18 to 21 days for mold to colonize and become visible to the naked eye.
