Have you ever looked at your roof and noticed long black streaks across your shingles? Did it ever occur to you that those marks may signal extreme wear and tear to your roof? While not every mark is something that should cause you concern, some marks should be seen as a sign to replace or repair your roof.

As our roofs age, the shingles are exposed to a lot of deterioration that can cause damage over time. Water slowly washes away the granules that coat the shingle, leaving your roof dangerously exposed to the elements. Over time this wear can progress into more serious damage as water begins to seep into exposed areas. Left untreated, these leaks can cause significant damage to your roof, increasing the costs associated with repairs.

The best solution is early prevention. Professional roofers can assess the current status of your roof and recommend any repairs or replacements necessary. They’ll work with you to make sure the gutters are in proper working order as well, so that you can rest easy within your home, knowing you’re safe and secure from the elements.
