3 Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your Roof

Whether your roof is beginning to age, a recent snow and ice storm has done a number on your roof, or your beginning to have more attic leaks; there are plenty of reasons why it may be time for your roof to be replaced. A patch or quick fix will only last so long.

Your roof is one of the most valuable pieces to your home. It protects you and your family, keeps you warm during the winter, and keeps you cool during the summer. Don’t have the mentality that your roof problems are out of sight out of mind. Having roof issues can lead to plenty of further damage in the near future.

A professional roofer always knows best when it comes to knowing when it’s time for a new roof. Don’t hesitate to call your local professional roofing company when you notice these 3 signs in your roof:

  1. Your Roof Is Aging

Have you replaced your roof since you moved into your home? How old is your home? Have you begun to notice any leaking, cracks, or sagging? When you think about the time frame of your roof’s age in these terms, you may realize that sooner rather than later, your roof is going to need to be replaced. Even if you are unsure of how old your current house is, or when the previous owners had the roof replaced, your local roofer should be able to take a look at your roof and estimate its age.There’s only one real way to know for sure, and that is to call your local professional roofing company to come out and perform a roof inspection. They will be able to share with you their professional opinion on if your roof needs replacing now or an estimate on how long your roof has left to last before needing replacing.

  1. Storm or Weather Damage

Here in the south, our weather can be a bit unpredictable. From pop up thunderstorms with hail and high winds, to ice storms and freezing rain – our roofs see it all. A few examples of storm damage that can negatively affect your home’s roof are: high winds, heavy snow that could stand for a few days, hail, and tornados. Did you know that sometimes in the summer, even harsh heat can be damaging to your roof’s condition? Our roofs receive the rough ends of a lot of harsh weather, no matter the season. Even if you can’t tell from your yard, there may be some hidden damage on your roof that is hidden from the naked eye. It’s best to call your local roofing company after a storm to perform an inspection of your roof to make sure that it’s still in tip-top shape.

  1. Looking To Upgrade

It may simply just be time for an upgrade with your roof. Whether older materials were used when your house was being first built, or you have been remodeling your home and you need a new roof to match your new aesthetic. The possibilities are endless. There are a ton of different options that your roofing company can walk you through to pick the perfect roof and materials for your specific home. Have you heard of asphalt shingles? These types of shingles are a great option for homeowners because they are cost-effective, durable, and easy to maintain!
