Roof Problems Sign #2: Peeling Like a Sunburn

Another early indicator of minor roof damage is paint peeling. You would most likely see this peeling occurring at the roofline due to extra moisture or poor ventilation. Much like a leak, this is a small problem that can quickly devolve into a bigger one.

Roof Problems Sign #3: Curling Like a Christmas Ribbon

Roof shingles are not immortal. Depending on your type of roof, you can expect a 20-30 year lifespan. When your shingles are nearing retirement age they’ll let you know by beginning to curl.
