Ceiling Spots and Stains
Stains on your ceiling may be caused by roof leaks. Keep in mind that water often travels, so the location of a leak may not be directly above a ceiling stain. These spots often look like a brown discoloration on your ceiling.
Problems with flashing, the metal strips around vent pipes, chimneys, window, and skylights, are the source of a great majority of roof leaks. Causes may be weather, improper installation or age. Hail hits a roof with the force of a hammer hitting a roof. If you notice damaged flashing, guttering or siding it is a good sign that your roof is also damaged. Call us for a Pre Insurance Roofing Inspection.
Shingles that have been blown off a roof by wind must be repaired quickly. Call us for a Pre Insurance Inspection. We can help you determine if you should file a homeowner’s insurance claim to cover the repairs or if your roof needs to be replaced.

Shingles that are cracked, blistered, curled or excessively worn must be replaced to avoid leaks. These shingles can fail under the harsh Dallas weather conditions and allow water to infiltrate your roof.
Excessive Moss or Algae
These tiny organisms can break down the structure of a shingle and trap moisture on its surface, causing premature aging.
Look in your gutters to see whether they are loaded up with shingle granules. Roofs tend to lose more granules toward the end of their life cycle. Inconsistent or darker color on some parts of the roof is another sign the granules have worn away.
