“Though there are many telltale signs of a damaged roof, the challenge here is to identify the more subtle problems that are harder to spot. A good way to start is to grab a pair of binoculars and check your roof from across the street, while looking for signs of damage. Can you spot missing, curled, or cracked shingles, or are you seeing some missing pieces of flashing? Curling or buckling shingles are signs that these are past their life expectancy, and are in need of immediate replacement.
To help you in making the decision, call a Menlo Park roofing contractor who can make a closer and more thorough inspection of your roof, and give you a professional recommendation on whether to replace or repair.”
