If your roof is old or you’ve noticed signs of a roof problem, it’s time to call professionals to assess your roof and determine whether it’s time for a roof replacement. Remember, it’s always a good time to replace your roof as each passing season takes a toll on the exterior of your home!
The top reasons for needing a new roof include leaks, wind damage, storm/hail damage, and damage from fallen trees.
Signs that You Might Need a Roof Replacement
- Roof is at least 20 years old
- Roof looks old and worn
- Dark stains from algae
- Moss growth on shingles
- Curling or cracked shingles
- Bald spots where granules are missing
Roof Replacement Can Be Cheaper in the Long Term
While replacing damaged shingles is inexpensive, the downside is that the replacement shingles may not match the existing roof. If you have more significant damage that is confined to one side of the roof, partial reroofing is an option, but can cost more in the long term. If an asphalt roof already has two or more layers, all layers will have to be removed before completing the partial re-roofing. If your roof needs to be replaced, you’ll have to decide whether to install the new roof over the existing one or tear the old one off. A complete re-roof ensures that water-damaged sheathing will be found and repaired, preventing future issues.
