How do you know when it’s time to hire a roofing contractor? Or, a different way to phrase that question is “how do you know when it’s more than a DIY roofing project”?

There are some things in the roofing contractor business that a licensed, bonded and professional roofer will see with an experienced trained eye that the average homeowner will not notice. If you think you have a DIY project ask yourself these question:

Are the shingles shifted or balding?

You may notice from the street view looking up that some of the shingles have shifted or are missing. If you see that the shingles are balding with patches of shingle granules missing, then you may have torn or damaged flashing underneath the shingles. You won’t see that from the sidewalk, but a roofing contractor will see it and know from experience what is below it.

Water works – where are there water stains or water dripping from the roof?

When you see the tell tale mark of a water stain on your roof on the inside of your home’s ceiling, you have a leak and it’s time to call the roofing contractor. If you see dripping spots from the eaves of your home ,even when the it hasn’t rained in the past 24 hours, then you have a leak and definitely need the professional services of a roofing contractor.

Will wild animals be living in your roof while you don’t notice the entry point?

If you ever think you hear the sounds of something in the attic, and it happens repeatedly, then you may have vermin. Michigan is home to many types of wild life and they seek shelter in warm dry areas, like attics. If they burrow in to the roof through loose shingles or find a gap that they can pull open along the eaves, you won’t see it. Though a roofing contractor will know from being on the roof what a narrow entry point for rodent and vermin will look like.

Has your heating and cooling bill increased?

A roofing contractor won’t know about your household bill, but a sure fire way to know that you have a leak in your roof, or missing shingles and damaged flashing is by running the heater more to warm the house or using your HVAC system more to cool the inside. If the heating and cooling system is running constantly yet you are not enjoying the results, you may have a roofing problem.
