This Cape style home located in Meriden, CT was having issues with their roof that was leaking.

Just because your roof isn't working doesn't mean that it will always exhibit the same signs as your neighbor's roof. Different roofs wear in different ways, and the material its made out of plays a part in the kind of damage it can sustain. There are several telltale roofing problem signs to look out for, and some or all may apply to your roof.
A few of these are common sense. If your roof is very old and past warranty, or if your roof is leaking or even allowing sunlight through cracks, you're probably in need of a roofing professional. Other signs include damaged or missing shingles or tiles. Damaged flashing is another good indicator of a roof's condition, but a roofing professional like Klaus Larsen LLC is more likely to spot this than a homeowner.
