Why is Roof Maintenance Important? 

Roof shingles contribute to an aesthetically pleasing home, as well as the structural integrity of your home’s roof. When it comes to your roof, its shingles are the first line of defense against outside elements like hailstorms, wind, or heavy rain. Maintaining your roof health is critical in protecting your valuables, home, and, most importantly, your family.  

Understanding Bruised Shingles 

Bruised shingles occur when a shingle receives damage from hail or debris. This damage leaves indentations within the shingle, leaving a soft, bruise-like feeling. The main problem with bruised shingles is that structural and cosmetic damage are hard to distinguish. While some shingles may have structural damage that could create issues for your roof, others could only have cosmetic damage.  

Several common signs of bruised shingles include: 

  • Visible leaks and water damage 
  • Missing or visibly damaged shingles 
  • Sagging roof deck 
  • The presence of mold, moss, algae, or rot under shingles or even in your attic/crawl space.  

What Bruised Shingles Can Do to Your Home and When It’s Time to Repair Your Roof 

If any of the above issues are already apparent, getting your roof inspected and repaired as soon as possible is critical. Delaying your roof maintenance can cause even more significant problems, such as severe water damage or weakening your home’s structure, which could cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars to mitigate. It’s important to contact a professional like HUF Construction, before these problems persist.
