Roofs complete our shelters. Without roofs, we are exposed to the elements. Wind, rain, and cold would penetrate our homes and dismiss the refuge they’re supposed to be. With the wild storms, and occasional tornadoes in the Savannah area, roof repair from a professional roof company is a common need.

How Do I Know If My Roof Needs Repairing?
If you notice shingles littering the yard after a storm, it’s a good idea to get your roof looked at. This could be an indicator that parts of your roof have been exposed where shingles have flown off.
Another indicator would be signs of water damage on your ceilings and/or walls. Signs of water damage include discoloration, strange smell, water spots, and softening material. It is possible that this is due to exposed portions of the roof allowing water to seep in and trickle wherever it wants.
Faded and brittle shingles is another great indicator that it’s time to get a new roof. Brittle shingles can be identified by simply detecting how easy it is to snap pieces off of them. If it snaps right off, that’s your answer. In many cases, it may be time to get a whole new roof and call a roofing company.
