Roof Replacement Apple Valley – Common Signs of Damage:

A roof can show several signs of damage, many of which we discuss below.

Building Age

Knowing your home or building’s age is very important. Contractors can pull a permit to access how old it is to help determine the roof’s life expectancy. Experts would suggest a plan and budget for a replacement if it’s between 15-20 years old.

Look out for warning signs of any damage like leaking, which shows up as water spots. Call us at Gold Star Contracting today for any questions you may have, and to schedule an inspection. 

Buckled Roof Decking

Roof decking is the section of the roof where everything must be strong and evenly flat. Don’t let a leak go unchecked for an extended period.

Flashing Issues

Flashing on top of your roof prevents water intrusion in the roof valleys and joints like chimneys or skylights. Some contractors cut corners to save people money and install the flashing improperly. There are just some areas you can’t cheapen.

Remember, any areas where there is a tear could lead to serious water damage down the line.


Algae and moss growth have the potential to eat through roofing materials. If not checked on for many years, there can accumulate more damage. Catching these early can be the difference between repairs and outright replacement.

Missing Shingles

Missing shingles were most likely not installed correctly in the first place. Professionals can easily repair a few missing shingles. The recommendation after missing a good amount of shingles is to have a new roof solution is considered. 

Ceiling Water Damage

Water damage on the ceiling is a clear indicator that your roof is leaking. Moreover, water damage appears darker in stains than the rest of the wood. With enough extensive damage from the leaks, that’s the time to consider roof replacement seriously.  

Loss of Asphalt Shingle Granules

Roofing granules looking like sand appearing in your gutter is a sign that your roof needs a replacement. A small amount of granule residue from your roof every year is typical. Call a professional to have a look at it and determine how much is too much.
