Signs You Need to Repair or Replace Your Roof
What are the warning signs you need to patch, repair, or replace your roof? If you have a sagging roof, it’s time for immediate action. However, it’s more confusing when you have a few damaged shingles or indoor leaks. Our crew can perform an inspection and prepare an estimate with recommendations on how to fix what’s ailing your roof.
Here are common signs that your roof will need some tender loving care in the near future:
- Cracked or missing shingles
- Shingle granules in gutters
- Discoloration, moss or algae
- You can see sunlight shining through the attic
- Sagging roof
- Indoor leaks
- Roof age (more than 20 years old)
Hardy materials, such as slate and ceramic tiles, can protect your roof for much longer than 20 years. However, it’s a good idea to conduct regular inspections to keep your roof in good working order. Typical materials, such as asphalt tiles, require repairs or replacement periodically.
Follow our tips for protecting your property to prepare for your roofing replacement or repair project.
When to Repair or Patch Your Roof
You’ll eventually need to make repairs even if they’re minor. Fortunately, many common root problems require simple repairs and patches. When our crew inspects your roof, we’ll look for the size of the damaged area. For problems impacting small areas, we won’t have to replace the roof. Typical situations that lead to minor roofing repairs include fallen branches and excessive wind that may damage or remove a few shingles. Minor leaks are also relatively easy to repair.
When to Replace Your Roof
If your roof is missing numerous shingles or if your roof is covered in moss, this indicates extensive damage that may require roof replacement. During the inspection, we’ll examine your shingles for curling edges with discoloration. This may indicate signs of decline. Even more concerning, sagging roofs often reveal structural issues that threaten your entire home. In these cases, we may recommend installing a new roof.
Here are some other roofing projects, such as installing new gutters and downspouts, to consider combining with your roofing replacement.
