A new roof is a great way to improve your home’s safety and curb appeal. It can help protect against the elements, creating a safer space for you and your family. Roof installation is also a great way to increase the value of your home, helping you sell your home faster when you’re ready to move. And, if your roof has already sustained damage, a fresh roof can protect the interior of your home from any further costs or damage.
When done right, many roofs can last up to 20-30 years before needing to be replaced, as long as they don’t experience major damage. If you’re wondering if your roof needs replacing, ask these questions to determine if it’s time to call a roofing expert:
- What shape are your shingles/tiles in? If you see broken, missing, or curled shingles, or cracked or broken tiles, it may be time to replace them.
- Do you see any roof sagging? You might spot the sagging right away or you may need to check for other signs. Do your shingles lines appear straight? Do you see any other problems, especially around the valleys, which are more vulnerable to rain damage? You may have rotting sheathing or another serious roof problem.
- What shape are your skylights, chimneys, vents, and roof edges in? If you don’t have the right type of flashing around these areas, you may be at increased risk of water damage.
- Can you see water damage, holes, or leaks in your attic, particularly after a heavy rain? These are urgent signs that you need repairs or a new roof.
If you are seeing any of these signs or your roof is older than 20 years, it’s a good idea to get a professional opinion. With a thorough roofing inspection, you can get a good idea of the condition of your roof and the best next steps.
Roof replacement is often a big project, so most homeowners put it off as long as possible. While the price and hassle of installing a new roof isn’t fun, the additional cost and damages caused by a leaking or collapsed roof are even less desired. By acting now, you can keep costs at a minimum.
