When to Consider a Roof Replacement
Every roof has a certain lifespan, beyond which it becomes dangerous, leaky, and beyond repair. You don't want to hesitate when it is time to replace your roof, because it becomes a safety hazard to you and your entire household. A declining roof should not be ignored.
Inspecting your roof can help minimize potential damage to the underlying deck boards. Some of the warning signs that indicate it’s time for a roof replacement include:
Age. How much longer can your existing roof last? If your roof is twenty years old or more, it should be inspected to determine if a roof replacement is needed.
Moss/Algae. The buildup of moss and algae can be unsightly. There could be a moisture issue causing the buildup. This needs to be addressed.
Deck is Damaged. If you see that the plywood is sagging or shows signs of water damages, it may be the result of a faulty roof.
Flashing Wear and Tear. Materials that surround vents and chimneys can deteriorate over time leaving your home exposed to possible water leakage.
Bald Looking Shingles: Protective granules wash off as a roof ages leaving your shingles with a bald or spotty appearance. This is a good indicator that it is time for a replacement.
Storm Damage. Your roof should always be inspected after serious weather. Hail, high winds, snowfall, or downed trees can damage the shingles. This can lead to cracks and leaks. If there is extensive damage, you will need a roof replacement.
