Signs You Need A New Roof
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU NEED A NEW ROOF?
Your home’s roof can suffer extensive wear and tear from being exposed to years of sun, rain, wind and other challenging weather conditions. But it can be difficult for a homeowner to judge when a roof is at the end of its useful life. Or whether roof repairs from a qualified roofer like A & B Roofing & Siding can extend your roof’s life a few more years.
When we conduct a roof inspection, we use the following checklist to look for the following signs that a roof needs to be replaced. One or more of these signs usually indicates a problem:
- Worn, cracked, curled or missing shingles or tiles
- Excessive rust on a metal roof
- Streaks or stains on the home’s exterior walls
- Excessive mold or moss growth on the roof surface
- Loose or missing flashing around vents and chimneys
- Loose or hanging gutters
- Staining of rafters in attic space
- Sagging or staining on the underside of the roof decking
A worn roof can lead to permanent damage to the overall structure of your home. Many people don’t realize they have roofing problems until their ceiling leaks or puddles appear on the floor. Only then – when it may be too late – will they call a certified residential roofing contractor.
Don’t make an important judgment about the condition of your home’s roof without first consulting with the professional roofers at A & B Roofing & Siding. Experts agree that you should have your roof inspected by a qualified roofing contractor at least every 3-5 years.
We’ll conduct a thorough inspection and assessment of your roof and provide a detailed report on its condition. Then we’ll work with you to decide if replacement is necessary, or if we can make repairs to extend the life of your roof. Don’t wait until it is too late and there has been structural damage to your home!
