How would I know if my Jacksonville roof is in trouble?

What are some of the warning signals of a Jacksonville roof in trouble?

Leakage in Attic After Wind-Driven Rain

Leakage

Possible cause: Leaky or inadequate shingle underlayment or deteriorated flashing.

Leakage in Attic After Ice Build-Up

Icy leak

Possible cause: Inadequate shingle underlatment allows water from ice dams to leak into attic.

Blistering and/or Peeling of Interior and/or Exterior Paint

Paint

Possible cause: Excessive temperature or high humidity due to poor attic ventilation.

Stains on Interior Ceilings and Walls or Mold and Mildew Growth

Stains

Possible cause:Inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage or inadequate ventilation.

Exterior Decay, Sheathing, and/or Siding

Exterior decay

Possible cause: Poor attic ventilation.

Missing, Cracked, or Curled Shingles

Decay

Possible cause: Shingles have reached the end of their useful life.

Dark, “Dirty-Looking” Areas On Your Roof

Gran loss

Possible cause: Loss of granules due to age of shingles.

Excessive Energy Costs

Energy

Possible cause: Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating/cooling system to run excessively. In warm weather, inadequate ventilation will trap hot air in the attic, causing air conditioning systems to work harder, or leaving your home’s interior hotter and less comfortable. Attic Ventilation: In both hot and cold weather, insufficient attic ventilation may cause moisture in the attic to become trapped and condense on the rafters. This condensed moisture can drip down onto the insulation and reduce its effectiveness. Excessive energy costs can result.
