Unless it’s been decades since you’ve replaced your roof, it isn’t always easy to determine when a few repairs are needed, or if your roof needs an entire overhaul. Thankfully, the team from NuHome Exteriors are residential roofing experts, and we’re here to help highlight some of the red flags that could call for roof replacement.
Below you’ll find some key things to look out for that could call for a new roof or repairs!
The Age of Your Roof
One of the easiest ways to determine whether or not you need a new roof is to consider the last time you had it replaced. These days, a quality roof can last upwards of 15-25 years. But if you can’t remember the last time your roof was replaced, or you’ve been experiencing issues with it, having a roofing inspector come out to give you their opinion is a good idea.
Signs of roof damage can range from curled or missing shingles to moss and mildew buildup on your roof. Rusted metal shingles and panels are also common indications that a new roof might be your best bet. Ultimately, consulting with an experienced roofing contractor will help you determine the best choice for you based on your budget.
Roof leaks can pose a big problem, causing structural damage and other issues in the home. Sometimes, you might not even be aware you have a leaky roof until it’s too late. Fortunately, if caught in time, a simple roof repair may be all you need. If not, a leaky roof can lead to mold, damaged ceilings, destroyed insulation, and other major issues.
One thing that’s often overlooked when it comes to residential roof replacement services, at least by homeowners, is the geographic area where a home’s located. If you live in a locale that’s no stranger to inclement weather like hail storms, thunderstorms, snow, ice, and rain, then you may need to replace or repair your roof more frequently. The best way to ensure your roof is in good condition is by having it frequently inspected.
