Signs Your Should Consider Roof Replacement
Your home’s roof plays a key role in keeping the elements out of your home, and keeping you and your family warm and dry. It is then important that you look out for the warning signs your roof is giving you telling you that it needs to be replaced. There are a few easy signs you can lookout for indicating that you may need to consider roof replacement; here are just a few of these signs.
Your Roof is Leaking
One of the easiest signs for you to detect indicating trouble with your roof is signs of a leak including water spots on the ceilings in your home. While this may sound obvious, homeowners are often inclined to ignore small water spots, as they do not view them as serious. However, even a small water spot in your ceiling can indicate larger roof damage, and can indicate that your roof may be in need of repair or replacing. It is important not to ignore any indication of a leak as serious water damage can occur quickly.
There are Broken or Missing Shingles
One way to tell if your roof may need replacing is to look at the condition of your roof’s shingles. This will require that you periodically go up onto your roof to inspect its condition. You will want to look for shingles that are broken, cracked, or missing on your roof. While your roof may be able to be repaired if there is a small number of damaged shingles, having many damaged or missing shingles likely indicates that your roof needs replacing.
Your Roof is Getting Old
A good indicator as to whether or not you should consider having your roof replaced in the near future will be your roof’s age. Most roofs will last 20-25 years, and if your roof is older than this, you will have to be prepared for the fact that you will need to have it replaced before too long. A professional roofer will be able to give you an idea of when your roof will need to be replaced.
