Do You Need a Roof Replacement?
Many homeowners don’t always know when their roofing materials need to be replaced, which can lead to a variety of problems in the future. Here are some signs to look for to determine if your home needs a roof replacement.
The Roof is Old
Most roofing materials have a lifespan of between 20 and 25 years. Once they hit this age mark, they are more susceptible to damage and should be replaced to prevent significant problems during the next major storm.
The Materials Are Missing
If your home has been through a recent windstorm that tore half the roofing materials from your roof, you need to get the roof replaced as soon as possible.
The Shingles Are Curled
Curling roofing shingles are a sure sign that you need a roof replacement. The curled edges of the shingles can allow water to seep into the roofing system and damage the structure of your roof.
You Can See Sunlight in Your Attic
If you look up at the ceiling in your attic and can see light coming through from outside, you need to call for a roof replacement immediately. If sunlight can get through, so can water and your home is likely to leak during the next rainstorm.
