How Do I Know I Need a Repair On My Roof?

A roof over our heads every day is a blessing we all take for granted sometimes but not all of us are experts on roofing or can identify a construction hazard just by looking at it.

So when do you know that what’s protecting you all the time won’t come crashing down on you? What are the signs that your roof needs a repair or replacement?

In Killeen you can ask Killeen Boom Town Roofing Contractors those questions. There are tell-tale signs for Texas homes when your roof needs attention; a sagging roof, leaks, any indication of algae or moss growing on the surface, blistering or peeling paint and age of the roof.

5 Signs Your Roof Needs Repair/Replacement and What Causes Them


This is a tell-tale sign that you need to get your roof checked. This could be a mistake during construction or an error in measuring and applying those measurements but this could also mean your roof has been degrading which could lead to structural damage. It’s better to be safe and ask Killeen Boom Town Roofing Contractors to come to your house and investigate.


As with most things in life, a roof can’t last forever. The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) states that the normal lifespan of a roof is between twenty to thirty years. If your roof has existed for 25 years, a proper assessment must be done to see if your roof needs repair/replacement.

Even if it is not evident that there is a leak or damage, it takes a long time to see the effects of them show on the interior, it could be too late and you might end up spending more money to address the damage to the structure.

A Leaky Roof

This is probably one of the most obvious signs that your roof needs to be replaced. Any leak indicates that there are holes in your roof and that water is getting in the nooks and staying there, inviting the possibility of water damage. A leaky roof can be caused by extreme weather conditions, mislaid shingles during construction or simply the age of the roof.


Blistering/Peeling of Paint

Rain is not the only enemy of your roof, heat and humidity can also do significant damage. Interior stains, as well as mold and mildew can also be signs for roof repair or replacement. Typically, this is due to inadequate shingle placement, which then leads to a roof with poor ventilation. 

Peeled Paint Roofing

Moss or Algae Covered Roofs

Old roofs can host a number of unwanted things such as algae, moss, and mold. The presence of lichen is normal, mostly in places that do not receive a lot of sun. Removing lichen can either leave your roof untouched or damage it by peeling the roofing material. We recommend asking a professional to determine if the roof can be safely cleaned.
