While not every roof damage requires a total replacement, all roofs do eventually reach the end of their lifecycles.
If you are questioning whether or not your roof requires a repair or a replacement, here are some recommendations:
#1 Schedule a roof inspection.
No matter if in the end your roof will require a simple repair or a complete replacement, it is best to know definitively, and right away.
Don’t delay in scheduling an appointment for a professional roof inspection. Roof inspections provide you, the owner, with diagnosis of your roof’s integrity, estimated remaining lifespan, and awareness of damages that need repair.
#2 Examine the damages.
After you have scheduled your roof inspection, take note of the damages that you can spot.
You will want to make note of items such as:
- Cracks in joints
- Building grade issues
- Moisture intrusion
- Cracks at or near the foundation
- Damages to the roof’s drainage system
- Damages to the roof’s accessories
#3 Signs that a roof needs replacement might include…
- Curled shingle edges or cupped shingle tabs
- Cracked shingles
- Missing granules on shingles
- Appears old and worn
- Dark streaks (which result from airborne algae)
- Moss on the roof’s surface
While you should certainly schedule a roof inspection if you notice any of the damages listed above, we highly recommend scheduling regular roof inspections. Doing so will help prevent severe damages.
