Here are some of the signs your roof needs to be replaced.
Was your home built more than 20 years ago? If that’s the case, you’re probably well out of your initial warranty. The age of the roof, the weather it’s faced, and other factors will play into how well your roof ages, but it’s best to be safe than sorry when it comes to replacing it.
It Shows Its Age
It’s one thing to have a roof that looks pretty good for its age, but it’s quite another to have one that shows visible signs of aging. If you’re missing shingles, have leaks, and feel drafts, your roof likely doesn’t look that great anymore. Time to get real about it and look for a replacement.
If you have an attic or crawl space under your roof, you might be sheltered from the damage happening up there. Go up and take a look at the eaves to see if they’re showing signs of leaks, rotting, or mold. Mold is not something to take lightly, as it can really aggravate respiratory issues, especially pre-existing ones like asthma and allergies.
It’s a Bit Drafty
Have your energy bills started to climb, despite no rate increase? Your roof could be a likely culprit! You can have us come by to inspect your roof and your windows to determine if either is the issue. When you replace either of these, you’re likely going to increase your energy efficiency and reduce some of those utility bills.
Those granules that are supposed to be firmly affixed to your shingles might be covering your patio and walkways. What you walk past every day believing is dirt might actually be the granules from your shingles. So take a closer look at the areas by the sides of your house, as well as your gutters. If you notice more granules on the ground than on your roof, it’s time to replace those shingles!
That roof style that looked fantastic and was the height of home design back in the nineties probably isn’t looking so spiffy anymore. It’s likely not in great condition at this point, but when you consider the curb appeal of your home, a roof is a part of the home that is visible to just about everybody. Bring your home’s style up to date with an updated one!
