The first sign of bad roofing problems is the movement of the shingles. The shingles will be loose and flip over when you walk on the roof. This signifies that your shingles are about to break off and fall to the ground.
The shingles may fly off if you feel a strong wind through your house. They can fly in many directions, so be aware of where they settle when they fall off.
If you notice shingles falling, follow them down to find where they settle. If you see any lying on top of your skirting boards or ground, they likely have wind damage issues. If your roof is older than 20 years, it is a good idea to inspect it annually. Like other parts of a house, a roof eventually needs replacing when it reaches the end of its life. While your roof may still be in good shape, you should check for signs of decay or wear and tear to get them fixed before they become serious problems.
The best way to inspect your roof is to walk on it. You want to ensure no loose or missing shingles, cracked tiles, or discoloration. Look for wet spots, discoloration, and soft spots that may indicate leaks. Make sure the entire roof can support your weight.
