IDENTIFYING WHEN YOUR ROOF NEEDS A REPLACEMENT
Another factor to consider is the structure of your home because not every roofing material can be used on every roof. A roof with a very low slope or completely flat will require a roofing material that is different from a steeper pitch. Also, materials like tile and slate are very heavy and some structures cannot support the weight.
The type of roofing material you choose to have installed on your home will make a big difference on how it will perform, how it appears, and how long it will last. That’s why it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each roofing system and what you can expect out of them.
Unfortunately determining if your roof needs a complete replacement is a little more complicated than deciding if your home’s paint needs a fresh coat. Listed below are some common signs that may indicate you need a reroof:
Stains on your walls or ceilings.
Cracked, curling, missing or raised shingles.
Decaying of siding, sheathing, or shingles.
Peeling of exterior/interior paint.
Areas that have mildew or dark spots.
Visible damage from severe weather
Your existing roof was incorrectly installed.
If your existing roof is close to 20 years old, then a roof replacement will be your best option. Every house at some point will need a new roof. It is best to react to these problems quickly to avoid internal problems and higher costs.
