Are there problems with your roof that could do costly damage to home? Take a look for these warning signs:
 
Missing, cracked, or curling shingles.
Your shingles may have reached the end of their useful life.
Excessive energy costs. 
Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating and cooling systems to run excessively.
Dark, "dirty-looking" areas on your roof.
This could be caused by vegetation, fungus, or algae growth, environmental pollutants, or loss of granules due to the age of the shingles.
Leakage in the attic after a driving rain.
Leaks can be caused by faulty or inadequate shingle underlayment or deteriorated flashing.
Stains on interior ceilings and walls or mold and mildew growth.
Stains, mold, and mildew can be caused by inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage, or inadequate ventilation.
Blistering and/or peeling of exterior paint.
Peeling or blistered paint can be caused by excessive mouster or high humidity due to poor attic ventilation.
Roof shingle, sheathing, and siding decay.
Decay can be caused by poor attic ventilation.
