Does your roof need repaired or replaced? You shouldn’t wait until the rain is coming through your roof to decide if your roof has some problems. Roofs show many signs of problems including curled shingles, warped wood, faded colour and missing shingles. The length of time your roof has been on your home is also a determining factor. If you’re home is 15-20 years old, you probably need a new roof.
If your roof is less than 10-15 years old, you should definitely have someone inspect your roof. Any damage that they see, they can inform you if they can be repaired or if you need your roof replaced. In addition, roofing materials have changed dramatically over the last 10-15 years. Roofing is now energy efficient and is designed to last longer from the elements.
When you’ve lost shingles in a storm, it’s best to repair your roof. The problem with replacing these shingles is you probably don’t have extras lying around the house that match. A professional roofing company can try to match your shingles so you don’t end up with a roof that looks like a patch work quilt. You shouldn’t leave the wood on your roof exposed to the elements because the water, snow or ice will find its way under other shingles and loosen them from your roof. You will also end up with wood that will rot and possibly end up with water inside your living space.
If you want to update the outside of your home, having a new roof installed helps to compliment your curb appeal. It also helps with the value of your home. If you’re planning on selling your phone in the next five years, it’s also a great selling feature to potential buyers because they don’t have to worry about that added expense when they move in.
