A great number of reasons could be behind the cause of roof damage such as falling objects, weather (wind, rain, snow, etc) and animals. A significantly damaged roof has the potential to cause structural problems to a property and encourage mildew in mold growth. If you are aware of the main signs of roof damage it will help you determine what the right course of action might be to have those repairs rectified. If wishing to inspect the roof it often helps to use a pair of binoculars and look from ground level. Avoid walking on the roof as this can be very dangerous. Also, certain signs of roof damage, such as leaks, are often quite evident from within the property.
Your roof can last up to 20 years if it is built well or regularly maintained. One of the biggest reasons a roof can fail is by lack of maintenance. You can help your roof last longer by using the proper measures to check for repairs needed and to ensure you are doing what you need to do for the type of roof that you have.
The weather can damage your roof in many different ways. Wind, for example, can tear shingles off your roof and warp gutters. The wind can also lift and displace tiles. Snow, ice, storms, lightening, rainfall and extreme temperatures can also damage roofs.
