Other Signs of Roof Problems

Other Signs of Roof Damage

Waiting to replace an old or damaged roof can lead to big, expensive problems down the road. Follow our roof maintenance suggestions, watch for signs of roof damage, and have your roof inspected by Marathon’s professional roofers annually, and after major storms.      


We offer free roof inspections by trained roofing professionals. Our inspectors can safely perform a thorough inspection and put your mind at ease. 


Dark Streaks

Dark streaks/stains are usually caused by algae. This is primarily a cosmetic issue. That being said, over time, the algae can degrade your shingle’s UV protection abilities and shorten the life of your roof.

Attic Leaks

Water in your attic may indicate damaged shingles and underlayment. It's important to find the cause of the moisture as soon as possible.

Ceiling Stains

Water stains may indicate damage to your roofing system. That moisture can also cause mold and mildew. Investigate water leaks as soon as possible. Call us for help.

Roof Sagging

Warped/sagging sections of roof indicate deterioration of the plywood below the shingles; often caused by poor roof ventilation (see Roof Maintenance page). Call Marathon Roofing. We can fix it.

Cracked Shingles

Over time, shingles lose their ability to expand and contract with changing temperatures, leading to brittle, cracking shingles. Cracked shingles can allow water into your home.

Roof Aging

Curled shingle edges, cupped shingle tabs, bald spots where granules are missing, or an overall worn look are indicators that your roof needs to be replaced. Call us for a free, professional roof inspection.

What Our customers say

Kevin F. ★★★★★
“We were very happy with Marathon, and John in particular. He worked tirelessly with our insurance coverage and ended up getting us a complete roof replacement even though our insurance company only wanted to cover half. The new roof is beautiful and seems to be holding up to the recent winds and rain very well.”
Ward M. ★★★★★
“I think this is the best contractor I have encountered in 8 years in the area. John runs an exceptionally responsive and professional operation.”
Linda W. ★★★★★
“We used Marathon Roofing to replace our roof in Leland and inspect and repair our roof at Carolina Beach. This is the best customer service we have experienced since we moved here in 2007. I would highly recommend Johnathan Hakes and Marathon Roofing!!”
Yelena & Bryan ★★★★★
“We would like to express our appreciation to John, with Marathon Roofing, for his fast response and a job well done on our chimney, which was damaged by strong winds. We would recommend him to anybody who need a quality job, or help with insurance clam, as Marathon is very reliable and knowledgeable company. We couldn’t have asked for better service and would definitely use this company again in the future.”
