If you have noticed that you have a few tile shingles that fly off of your roof during a big wind storm, then you may jump to the conclusion that you need to have your entire roof replaced. The good news is, though, that it just may need to be repaired a little bit. When you hire a tile roofing service to take a look at any damage, make sure that they check it for some other things as well. From checking on the condition of your rain gutters to seeing how long your shingles will last, this article will take a closer look at a few things you should have your roof inspected for. Read on to learn some more.

Rain Gutters

If your rain gutters are in bad shape, they may damage your roof or the outside of your house. While your roofer is up on your roof, make sure that you have them inspect the quality of your rain gutters and how well they have been installed. Sometimes, they just need to be reattached so that they work a little bit better.

Fascia and Soffit

The fascia and soffit are what surround the perimeter of your roof and the underside of where your roof goes to your house. They are also what your rain gutters are attached to. If you have any wood rot in your soffit or fascia, it may lead to further problems like mold later on down the line. Make sure that you have your roofing contractor closely inspect them so you don't run into further issues down the road.

Shingles

The most obvious thing to have your roofer check on while they are up on your roof is the condition of your existing tile shingles. Even if a few of them have flown off, are most of them still intact or do they need to be replaced? While they are up there, a roof inspector will also be able to tell if you will need to have your roof redone or if you will need to the whole thing replaced later on.

If you think about it, your roof acts as one of the biggest barriers against wind, rain, snow, and other issues. This is why you always need to make sure that it's in good condition. To learn more about these and other roofing problems, schedule an appointment with your roofer today.
