Uncommon Signs of Roofing Issues

Roofs are designed, built, and installed to last for years, but that doesn’t mean they’re invulnerable to damage. We’ve all heard of the common signs of roofing damage—from damaged shingles to leaking roofs—but there are a handful of other signs that may don’t immediately equate to “roof damage” in the minds of homeowners. 

Have you heard ghostly winds and whistling that seemingly manifest out of nowhere? Or perhaps you’ve heard the irking sounds of scurrying animals and nesting birds up above. Upon hearing these noises, your first thought might be to call the exterminator or to check all your windows, but you should also reach out to Escandon Roofing

We’ve compiled a few of the lesser-known roofing issues homeowners in El Paso can face. If any of these signs seem relevant, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Ghostly Whistling Sounds

Picture this, you’re sitting in your living room, reading the latest Lee Child thriller when all of a sudden, your home’s quiet ambiance is unceremoniously ruined by a mysterious high-pitched whistling. 

At first, you think it’s nothing more than a window that’s been left open so you return to your reading. After a few minutes, however, the sound manifests once more, as if beckoning you to search for it. So, you stand up from your comfortable spot on the couch and begin an investigation. To your surprise, all the windows are closed shut. Then, as if taunting you, the whistling permeates throughout your home once again. 

In many cases, these sounds can be attributed to small roofing damages which result in airflow issues, hence the whistling. Finding the actual source of the damage can be difficult (talk about finding a needle in a haystack!), but you don’t have to worry. Simply reach out to your roofer and we’ll perform an in-depth roofing inspection to find the damage. 

The good thing is that this type of damage tends to be an easy fix, so you won’t have to worry about total roof replacement or anything as exorbitant. That is if you have the issue taken care of instead of letting that mysterious whistling become a part of your home’s overall “charm.” 

Although the damage may be small, it can grow and become a much bigger issue if left untreated. 

Unwelcome Guests: Rodents, Nesting Birds, and More

Although roofs are the first line of defense against threats like harsh sunlight or drastic weather, they’re prime real estate for pests and birds. Perhaps you’ve heard the sounds of scurrying rodents up above or you’ve noticed birds nesting atop your home’s roof. Not only are these infestations irritating, but they can also result in detrimental damage to your roofing system. 

If an infestation of birds has called your roof their home, then you have quite a bit to worry about. For starters, bird droppings are highly acidic and can cause damage to your roof materials and shingles. One nest could be excusable but an entire infestation can produce large amounts of droppings on a daily basis, resulting in damage, corrosion, and even the disintegration of shingles. 

In order to properly deal with your bird infestation, you’ll have to seek help from a local bird removal service. Once the birds are gone, the real work starts. Reach out to Escandon Roofing so we can clear out the damage and make any necessary repairs so your roof won’t become a hotspot for nesting birds again!

Another unwelcome guest is the rodent. If you continually hear rodents scurrying about on your roof, then you can take that as a sign that your roof has some degree of damage. Perhaps these pests made their way into your roof through a small crack or hole. Again, in these instances, make sure to contact Escandon Roofing after your rodent issue is taken care of. This way, we’ll be able to tend to any cracks, all while providing the necessary roofing maintenance you deserve. 

Hail Can Damage Much More Than Your Car’s Exterior

Hail often takes homeowners in El Paso by surprise, and for good reason! It’s quite difficult to predict when a hail storm will occur. Depending on the size of the hail, your roof shingles won’t stand a chance. If a hail storm recently ravaged your neighborhood, don’t wait and contact Escandon Roofing. We’ll be more than happy to check out the state of your roof post-storm to see if it incurred any damage.
