Are you considering a roof replacement? The need for a new roof can be obvious at times but can also be hard to determine. A new roof will give you peace of mind that your roof is durable and working properly, especially through harsh weather conditions. Here are the top signs that you need a roof replacement.
- Missing or Damaged Shingles – An obvious sign of a needed roof replacement is if you notice missing or damaged shingles on your roof. Harsh weather can result in your shingles getting ripped off, which can result in your sheathing underneath being exposed and subject to damage. Additionally, your shingles can curl overtime due to heat and moisture.
- Clogged Gutters – Keeping water off your roof is crucial, and gutters play a big part in that. If your gutters seem to be getting clogged frequently, you may want to look out for roof and water damage. When cleaning your gutters, if you notice roofing material or roof debris, your roof may be deteriorating.
- Moss & Mold – If you begin to notice moss and mold on your roof, call a professional for a roof replacement as soon as possible. When moisture occurs between your roof layers or attic, it can cause mold and moss to grow on your roof, which can damage it from the inside out.
- Age – A rule of thumb for a roof replacement is typically 12-15 years. If your roof is coming up on this age, and is giving you issues, consider a roof replacement so you can enjoy your home for the next 15 years without worrying about roof damage.
