Residential Roofing - Key Danger Signals

Leakage in Attic After

to leak into attic

Blistering and/or Peeling of
Interior and/or Exterior paint

Stains on Interior Ceilings and Walls

or inadequate

Exterior Decay,

Missing, Cracked,
or Curled Shingles

Dark, “Dirty-Looking” Areas 
On Your Roof


Possible cause: Loss of granules due to age of shingles

Energy Costs


Possible cause: Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating/cooling
system to run excessively

In warm weather, inadequate ventilation will trap hot air in the attic,
causing air conditioning systems to work harder, or leaving your home’s
interior hotter and less comfortable. Attic Ventilation: In both hot and
cold weather, insufficient attic ventilation may cause moisture in the
attic to become trapped and condense on the rafters. This condensed
moisture can drip down onto the insulation and reduce its effectiveness.
Excessive energy costs can result.
