Visible Leaks or Holes

Leaks are a common sign that you may need a new roof. If your roof was doing its job correctly, there would be no leaks. Thus, leaks are a sign that something is wrong. It could be you just have a small hole, but it can also be a sign of something much more serious. It's best to call IronHead Roofing for a roofing inspection for your Oregon home or office space.

Interior Water Damage 

Water damage to your roof can show up as water marks inside your home or office space. From streaks to stains and water spots on your walls or ceiling, this is most likely a sign of a leak in your residential or commercial roof. If you see any of these visible signs of water damage, water can collect quickly, so it's imperative that you call our local roofing company in Oregon for a roofing inspection right away.

Sagging Roofline

A sagging roofline is an indication that something is significantly wrong since roofs are supposed to be straight. Roofs can sag on homes where the roof has not been replaced in a while, so the structural integrity has dissipated. Water damage can also cause a roof to sag. It's best to call your local roofing contractor in Oregon for a thorough inspection of the problem.

Curling, Missing, or Mossy Shingles

Shingles are supposed to lie flat against your roof and they overlap, which affords the most protection. When shingles become damaged or old, they can curl or go missing. Moss growing on your Oregon roof can be a sign of too much water on your roof or of water pooling. Either way, this can cause leaks to happen, causing water damage inside your home.

Storm Damage

If your Oregon roof has suffered storm damage, it will most likely need to be replaced. Anytime a roof has been structurally compromised, it's an open invitation for the elements to cause more damage. Luckily, storm damage is covered by most homeowners and business owners' insurance policies. Our team works closely with your insurance company in order to ensure the storm damage your roof suffered is covered.

Bald Shingles

Shingles are covered with granules that help to protect your roof from the elements, especially the sun's powerful UV rays. Granules wear off over time, and eventually, they all can come off, leaving you with a bald roof. If so, your roof has no protection from the sun, which can cause the shingles to then warp, cup, or even altogether deteriorate, necessitating a roof replacement service.

Your Neighbors Are Replacing Their Roofs

While you don't want to do what the Jones' do for the most part, in the case of roofing, it's best to pay attention to your neighbors. Most likely, your home was built at the same time as your neighbors'. So, if they are replacing their roofs, it might be time for you to replace yours. It's a good reminder to check the age of your roof, too, since most asphalt shingle roofs last only between 20 and 25 years.
