When blustery spring storms hit the Memphis area, they can cause a lot of damage to your roof. Whenever a storm with a lot of debris hits, it's always a good idea to get outside and visually inspect your property for signs of damage afterward. Most homeowners can pick out the obvious signs that something is wrong. Without an up-close look, it's difficult to tell whether you can get away with a minor roof repair or need a more involved solution, such as roof replacement. If you do notice something, you can always contact Marshall Brothers Home Improvements to ask about a complimentary roof inspection by one of our professionals.

Signs That a Roof is Damaged

Keep an eye out for these following signs of a damaged roof after any storm, no matter if it's spring, summer, winter, or fall. If you can catch and fix the damage before it becomes a more involved problem you'll save a lot of time and money.

  • Loose or Missing Roof Shingles
  • Broken Soffits and Fascia
  • Large Fallen Branches on the Roof
  • Water Leaks Inside the Home

One or more of these signs means you should call on an expert to take a closer look. A Marshall Brothers contractor can provide an in-depth inspection of the roof and the attic to determine what kind of damage you are dealing with and what condition the roof is in. If the damage is severe, you may need to get a total roof replacement. If this is the case, you may notice the following signs on your roof:

  • Old, Curling, and Buckling Shingles
  • Pieces of Shingle Granules in the Gutters
  • Dips and Valleys in the Roof
  • Soft or Spongy Feeling When Walking on the Roof

These signs can also indicate that the roof is past its prime. Most asphalt roofs last between 20 and 25 years. After that, they can become damaged easily by rain, snow, wind, and even sunshine. You'll likely know whether your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan and might need replacement. However, our roofing contractor can help you confirm this with a roof inspection. After all, there is no point in attempting repairs to a roof that is failing anyway. You'd be better off to replace that damaged roof entirely.
