Have you noticed a shingle missing? If one is missing more are loose and the flashing exposed is more susceptible to tears and leaks. Having a simple repair of replacing shingles with GAF Advance Protection shingles or Timberline products means you are protecting your home investment as well as saving on winter energy costs.
The UV rays of the sun and strong weather conditions like heavy rain and wind can wear away the granules on an asphalt shingle that reflect sun rays and protect the roof flashing. These granules help save on energy consumption. Age and wear are usually the reasons shingles go bald and lose the granules. This is a sign it’s time for repair and possibly replacement.
If the gutter has pulled away from the eave of the roof it may be damaged from weight of debris or come loose from it’s anchored position during the original installation. This is a sign that you need to have a professional roofing service performed on the roof. Annual maintenance on the roof and gutter system can help the anchor hold it’s position longer. Routine cleaning of the gutters can alleviate the weight of wet leaves stuck in the gutter or any ice dams that form in the winter.
