Many homeowners don’t understand that there are actually visible signs that can indicate when they need to replace their roofs. There are three main reasons why you should consider replacing it: structural issues, damage, and wear and tear. If you see these issues developing, it is important that you speak with a company like us who can help you determine if your roof needs replacement or not.
Structural issues can develop for various reasons such as when water penetrates through your roof’s outer layer and then proceeds to eat away at the wood underneath. In fact, it is common for an entire layer of shingles to peel off after just one or two seasons due to water damage like this. Beyond that, any water penetration in your attic alone could cause mold build-up which can then lead to other serious problems within your home such as allergies or worse, respiratory issues.
Likewise, if you see any damage on your roof, such as torn shingles or missing pieces of your flashing, then it is probably time for either a new one or at least having a portion of it repaired. After many years of exposure to weather and other harmful elements, any part of your home’s exterior can start wearing down and show signs of aging which will lead to future problems.
