What other signs might warn that you need a roof replacement? Of course, you should rely on a roofing company for a complete evaluation, but there are simple and safe inspection methods that the homeowner can and should perform several times a year.
Roof Replacement Signs
If you can access the underside of your structure from inside an attic, there are tell-tale indicators that roof replacement is in order. Try to conduct your examination on a sunny day and have an assistant turn off the lights so you can spot pinholes of outside light. Pay close attention around chimney flashings and valleys. If light can enter, then moisture is entering, as well.
We look for moisture stains on the sheathing, framing and insulation and check the sheathing for rot or mold and mildew. Any of these conditions require immediate repair and possibly roof replacement. Sagging sheathing is a sure sign that your structure is at the end of its useful life.
For safety sake, it’s not necessary for you to climb on top of the house. Use a pair of binoculars to get a close look at your shingled surface. If you see cracked or curled shingles, or shingles that are loose or missing, you no longer have adequate protection from the elements. Obvious defects in the flashing around chimneys and in valleys are a sure sign of future problems. If these joints are caked with layers of tar due to repeated roof repair, the material will age and fail and should be replaced with proper metal flashing. Call us and we’ll perform a full inspection.
Shingle Roof Replacement
One easy test for asphalt shingle roof is to look for excessive granules washing off of the surface. Look in gutters when you perform a cleaning and around downspouts anytime. Shingle roofs begin to release more of their granules at the end of their life span. A steady collection of granules under your eaves indicate that it’s time for a roof replacement.
The expected life of a shingled structure is anywhere from 15-30 years, depending on local conditions and the quality of the original installation. If your roof is at least 15-20 years old and you spot any of these indications, a roof replacement might be the best choice to head off costly emergency repairs.
Insurance Claims for Storm Damage RepairIf your roof has recently been damaged by severe weather, let us work with your insurer to secure a complete roof replacement for your home. We meet with adjusters to make sure they don’t overlook any critical damage. Following a storm, be sure you receive a professional evaluation right away to document your loss and ensure fair treatment from your insurer.
