Roof Repair and When to Call Apex Construction LLC

Keeping your roof well-maintained is so important. If you find your roof is damaged and left unrepaired, you can be facing a whole bunch of problems down the road and a lot of these problems can be costly. If you think it may be time for a FREE roof inspection, here are a few signs to look for and surprisingly some signs you may not see so easily. Apex Construction LLC serves areas including Silver Spring, North Bethesda, Gaithersburg, and Columbia, Maryland.

Sunlight peeking through small holes in the roof may be missed if it’s contained to the attic only. A lot of homeowners don’t visit their attics very often. The black streaks you’re seeing may be passed off as stains from leaves or just age, but in fact it’s probably algae growth that’s using your roof as it’s primary choice of food. Early leaks can take weeks or months before being seen inside your home. In the meantime, you could be allowing mold to grow or water to damage your roof sheathing. Hail damage is hard to spot as well, and many times it requires a roofer to do an inspection after a hail storm. It’s wise to check after a recent storm because your insurance may cover the costs.
