One of the most integral parts of your house is the roof, and did you know that it needs replacing eventually? Even if it is routinely maintained, a skilled roofer will recommend roof replacement once it has outlived its normal lifespan. The video shows how to determine whether you need a new roof.
The type of material used, and the climate determine a roof’s lifespan. Once you know the average lifespan of your roof, you should hire a roofing company to assess it, especially when it’s between 15-20 years old.
Shingles have granules on them. The granules protect them from UV rays and natural elements. Bald spots on the shingles indicate the roof is getting worn out. Missing shingles are a huge indicator that your roof needs replacing, and you will have leaks when it rains.
A curling shingle is yet another red flag. Shingles curl upwards due to age, temperature changes, and poor ventilation. Strong gusts of wind can lift the shingles off completely. Lastly, the most obvious sign is roof leaks. Wet ceilings and dark spots indicate a leak.
Obtain quotes from professional roofers, and choose one that is licensed, insured, and has experience in roof replacement.
