Check That Roof !

 

Avoiding roof problems can save you from costly damage, skyrocketing energy costs, and an unattractive home exterior.  Use this simple checklist to help identify early signs of potential trouble:   * Loose or missing roof shingles.   * Stains on interior or attic walls.   * Shingles curled around the edges.   * Cracked, buckled or blistering shingles.   * Gutters full of granules from shingles.   * Roof flashing that shows wear.    If you checked one or more of these signs, your roof may need replacing.
