4 Signs of Roof Damage You May Not Notice


Homeowners and business owners alike may believe that the first sign of roof damage is a leak. Unless a roof is damaged by a fallen tree or something else that may puncture the roof, it takes some time before roof damage leads to obvious leaking. Here are some signs to look out for before it gets to this stage.

1. Black Mold

Not all leaks drip down to lower floors. Some may run behind walls or along beams. When this moisture remains undried and protected from sunlight, black mold may develop. If you have black mold more than 10 square feet in size, you will need to hire professionals to clean it once the roof is fixed.

2. Howling of the Wind

If you live in a windy area, it may not be uncommon to hear the whistling or howling of the wind from time to time. Small cracks and holes in the roof can make this even louder than normal. If you notice these sounds in the attic, it’s a good idea to try to pinpoint the source. If wind can get in, water may follow.

3. Nails in the Yard

Another effect of the wind is that when strong enough, it may cause some materials to push against nails and work them loose. When nails come loose, the shingles may also loosen and end up in your yard. If you see missing shingles in the yard, you’ll want to get your roof inspected.

4. Buckling Tiles or Shingles

If the building is on a slope or you are willing to brave a ladder, you may be able to notice buckling tiles or shingles. This may be an indicator of warped decking, which may signal a leak somewhere inside. In fact, this could be the cause of your black mold problem.

If you see these four signs of roof damage or have other reasons to believe your roof may not be in the best shape, don’t delay. Contact Bone Dry Roofing at 615-541-6235 today for an inspection or roof repairs.
