When Might You Need a New Roof?
When is the last time you repaired or replaced your roof? Many homeowners are unsure of when their roofs may need service. There are several indicators and once you’ve noticed the signs, hiring a roofer becomes a much more justifiable investment. See the guide below to learn the signs that indicate you need a new roof.
Generally, it is recommended that you leave being on the roof to the professionals. Curled shingle edges are generally a sign of an older roof and can cause a real problem with homeowners insurance. Tree debris on the roof becomes acidic as it deteriorates and causes any roof elements under it to age at a faster rate. Keep an eye on any trees with branches stretching over your property, especially over your roof. Any tree branches rubbing along the roof can damage the shingles and become areas for rodents to travel through or nest under.
Bad tab adhesion of the shingles to the roof can cause damage to the home interior during a windstorm. While you would need to inspect this from on top of your roof, it is still recommended to limit your time on the roof as much as possible. When a new roof covering is installed, all of the components should also be replaced.
