At ProQor Roofing, we strongly recommend including roof maintenance in your regular home maintenance checklist. By staying aware of your roof’s condition and having small problems repaired before they escalate, you will improve your roof’s lifespan, performance, and appearance.

Roof Leak Warning Signs
You don’t need to climb on your roof to spot signs of trouble. It’s best to leave that to the professionals. Instead, examine your roof from the ground with a pair of binoculars, looking for damaged or missing shingles, rust spots or cracked caulk on your flashings, cracked or worn-out rubber boots around vent pipes. Check your gutters for piles of asphalt granules, as well.
Granules in your gutters can indicate that your asphalt shingles are nearing the end of their service life.
Other Signs of Roof Leaks
You can also check the other areas of your home for early signs of roof leaks. Go to your attic and look for wet insulation or sunlight peeking through the roof. Both signs may mean your home is vulnerable to leaks. As a roofing specialist, we recommend calling us for a professional inspection if you spot any of these signs.
Our Roofing Inspection Services
Our professional roof inspection and maintenance services will provide a more accurate picture of your roof’s condition. Water can travel from one end of your roof to another, making it hard to pinpoint the source of a leak without professional help. We can also determine the status of your roof underlayment and see if there is hidden damage to your roof’s structure. We can spot small problems before they cause costly water damage, so we suggest scheduling a professional inspection at least twice a year.
