Is It Time For a Roof Inspection?

Just like anything else, a roof will wear over time and begin to not work as efficiently as it would in new condition. To ensure that you can prevent a roofing problem before it starts, it’s best to have your roof inspected regularly. Hiring a professional Connecticut roofing company to perform a roof inspection will give you the peace of mind that a big problem won’t blindside you. Here are some problems you may notice that should prompt you to get your roof inspected immediately:

Curling shingles

I’m sure you’ve seen this before on various roofs you may pass in your travels. This usually indicates that your roof is at the end of its lifespan. As roofing shingles age, they may curl up at the edges like the example below.


Moss growth

Moss doesn’t always mean your roof is at the end of its lifespan, however, it can. Hence why it’s very important to have a roof with moss growth inspected. The inspector will be able to give you a better idea if the moss growth is a sign of a roof that needs replacement, or if the roof is structurally sound but needs cleaning or other maintenance. A roof inspection will give you an idea of what the moss on your roof means.


Dark spots

Similar to moss growth, dark spots can mean the end of your roof’s life or it can mean that the roof needs to be maintained. The roof inspector will be able to provide you with guidance on what to do next to alleviate this.



Finding shingle granules on your lawn or in your gutter is a certain way to tell that something is wrong with your roof. This is a sign that there was a manufacturer’s defect with the shingles you bought, or your roof is at the end of its lifespan.
