The Seven Deadly Signs…of a Damaged Roof

Your home is your biggest investment and we at Live Oak Construction understand that taking care of your home is just one part of your hectic, busy life. That’s why we want you to know what signs to look for in and around your home.  Any 1 of these 7 signs tells you something is wrong with your roof and that you should contact us to schedule your FREE roof consultation.  Some roof damage is reparable and some requires a roof replacement.  At Live Oak construction, our professional inspectors can determine the extent of your roof issue.  We will assess the situation and help you decide if a repair will fix the problem or if replacement is your only option.    

  1. Ceiling Discoloration
    If you notice spots on your interior ceilings that are discolored, you should call us.
  2. Exterior Streaking
    Check your outside walls for streaks, those are a sign that a leak is most likely present and you need to give us a call.
  3. Compromised Shingles
    If you can spot cracks or curls on your roof shingles, or if you find some in your yard, it’s definitely time to call us.
  4. Gutter Granules
    If granules (small grainy bits) from your shingles start appearing in your gutter, it’s also time to call us.
  5. Split wood shingles
    If you have wood shingles on your roof and you can see that they’re split, yep…call us.
  6. Mold or Moss growth
    If you start to notice a lot of mold or moss on your home’s exterior, let us take a look. 
  7. Attic stains
    Noticeable stains on rafters or attic ceiling mean moisture is present and has probably gotten in through roof damage. You absolutely should CALL US!
