    Water Damage

A common way to spot roofing damage is through water damage around or in your home. 


  1. Water Spots in Home: Sometimes beige spots may appear on your ceiling, and this can be an indicator there is a water leak in your home, this is known as a water spot. These leaks can be from a leaky roof or appliance leak, so it is important to have a roofing contractor look at the roofing system. 

  1. Leaking Roofs: During a rainstorm, it might become noticeable that a leak is present in your home. While this can be an indicator your roof has been damaged, a roofing expert can help determine if a whole roofing replacement is needed or if the homeowner will benefit from a repair. 

Water damage might not show in the home but can show through bucking or curling of the roofing shingles.

  1. Bucking & Curling Roofing Shingles 

Identifying bucking and curling of your roofing shingles can be difficult from the ground alone, but if you do not feel comfortable being on your roof, we advise you to call a professional roofing contractor to inspect the roof. 


  1. Bucking: If your shingles appear to be pushed upwards from beneath, this is called bucking. Bucking of shingles is the result of shingles not laying flat due to the roofing underlayment, movement of the wood deck, lack of insulation, poor attic ventilation, or improper installation to name a few. 

  1. Curling: Curling shingles have turned up edges that can cause the central part of the shingle to look like it is sunken in. Curling is common for shingles due to normal wear and tear or can be the cause of poor quality. 


Bucking and curling roofing shingles are not the only way you can tell your roofing is damaged through the shingles! During or after a storm you may notice flapping or even missing shingles! 

  1. Flapping & Missing Roofing Shingles

  1. Flapping: Unlike missing shingles, flapping shingles can be harder to identify from the ground unless there are high winds. High winds can cause the flapping shingles to flap and settle back down, which is often caused by a loose nail or damaged shingle. 

  1. Missing: Common occurrences like wind, rain, and wear-and-tear can cause shingles to become loose and fall off your home. While a couple of missing shingles may not be the cause of a roof replacement, a roofing contractor can examine the roof to ensure no other further damage occurred.


While we did not cover all the signs of a damaged roof, these are three of the most common signs homeowners can identify before contacting a roofing contractor.
