Signs Of Roof Damage That Requires An Immediate Visit from An Austin Roofing Contractor
One of the most common signs of roof damage is missing or damaged shingles. If you notice any of your shingles are loose, cracked, or missing altogether, it’s time to call a roofer. Damaged shingles leave your roof vulnerable to water leaks and wind damage, so it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible.
Another common sign of roof damage is excessive granules in your gutters. As shingles age, they start to lose their protective coating of granules. If you notice an excessive amount of granules in your gutters, it’s a good indication that your shingles are nearing the end of their lifespan and need to be replaced.
You may also notice:
- Signs of water inside
- Leaky or clogged gutters
- Extreme temperatures in your attic and high energy bills
Signs of Water Damage Inside Your Home
Texas weather can be unpredictable. If you know what to look for, you can spot early signs of water damage and take steps to mitigate the problem before it gets worse.
One of the most common signs of water damage is elevated humidity levels. If you notice that your home feels more humid than usual, or that there is condensation on your windows, walls, or other surfaces, it could be a sign of a roof leak. Another common sign of water damage is peeling paint or wallpaper.
This can be a sign of both elevated humidity levels and actual water leaks. If you notice peeling paint or wallpaper, it’s important to get a New View Roofing project manager to investigate the cause and take steps to fix the problem.
Finally, another sign of potential water damage is mold or mildew in your attic. These can grow in areas with high humidity or actual water leaks. If you notice mold or mildew, it’s important to address the underlying moisture problem to prevent further growth. Your best bet is to get in touch with one of our Austin area project managers to evaluate the issue and make recommendations for repairs.
Another common sign of roof damage is the appearance of water stains on your ceiling or walls. These stains are usually caused by leaks in your roof, which can allow water to seep into your home. If you see water stains, it’s important to have a professional inspect your roof as soon as possible to determine the extent of the damage.
How Can You Tell Your Gutters Are Leaking or Clogged?
There are a few telltale signs that your gutters may be leaking or clogged. First, take a look at the ground around your foundation. If you see any water pooling or staining, it’s likely that your gutters are to blame. Another sign of gutter issues is if you notice any watermarks or staining on your walls, ceilings, or floors. This is caused by water seeping in through cracks or holes in your gutters and can lead to serious damage if left unaddressed.
If you suspect that your gutters may be leaking or clogged, the best course of action is to contact a professional for an inspection.
How Do Extreme Temperatures in Your Attic (and High Energy Bills) Signal Roof Damage?
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t spend a lot of time thinking about your attic. However, your attic plays an important role in the overall comfort and energy efficiency of your home. That’s why it’s important to be aware of the signs that extreme temperatures in your attic may be indicative of roof damage.
One of the most common signs of roof damage is an increase in your energy bills. If your heating and cooling costs seem to be rising for no apparent reason, it could be because your attic is no longer properly insulated. This can happen if your attic space is not properly ventilated, or if there are gaps or holes in your roof that are allowing heat or air to escape.
What if Your Roof Needs to Be Replaced?
Our team will check out your roof and evaluate the damage. If we can make repairs and save you money, we will. However, sometimes roofs are past saving and need to be replaced. If that’s the case with your roof, your inspector will let you know so you can make an informed decision.

How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Roof?
If your roof needs to be replaced, you may be wondering how much it will cost. The cost of replacing a roof can vary depending on the size of the roof, the type of materials used, and the complexity of the job. Your inspector will talk to you about the cost to replace your roof after your roof inspection; in some cases, replacing a roof entirely is more cost-effective than making repairs until it fails completely.
When Should You Call Us?
If you notice any of these signs of roof damage, don’t delay in calling a roofing professional. The sooner you address the issue, the less extensive and expensive the repairs will be.
Our team can send an inspector out to your home at a time that’s convenient for you.
