HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A NEW ROOF?
A roof is often overlooked and forgotten about. Being that it is a very vital part of your home and that it is right above you always protecting you, you need to protect it in return. Roofs keep you out of harms way when storms come through and they also keep you warm at night, protecting you from the outside elements. It’s time to think about if you need a new roof or not. There could be lots of signs that show you need a new roof or there could be no warnings and then out of nowhere comes lots of damage. If you couldn’t answer when your roof was last restored, it’s time to probably look into it being inspected.
There are lots of common signs that can tell you if it’s time to get a new roof. Some of those can be roof leaks and cracks, roof rot, poor energy efficiency, and plenty more. Depending on a few variables, roofs typically last from 20 to 25 years if you take care of it properly. If you don’t know exactly how old yours is, you can probably find out by checking your home improvement records or contacting the company that you believe did the roof. If you do a bunch of digging and still can’t find out how old your roof is, you can call a company out to your home and get it inspected and they can give you an estimate of how old it might be. A team of professionals will assess the roof and look for things you wouldn’t know to look for such as what state your shingles are in, and if there’s any current damage that needs to be fixed.
