Signs you Need a New Roof
Roofs are designed to withstand harsh conditions, however, they do not last forever. You may be wondering what signs you need to look for in replacing your roof. Well, here are a few things that cause roof damage and what signs you should be looking for.
Storm Damage: Living near the Gulf Coast, we endure harsh weather from hurricanes. Wind is a big issue that will cause roof damage. Harsh winds can cause your shingles to fly off leading to leaks and creases in your shingles where seals have been broken from flapping in the wind. Harsh weather also brings hail which can damage your roof. Hail can cause shingles to bruise and crack allowing water to leak in. Lastly, fallen debris such as trees can lead to roof damages.
Roof Leak: Roof leaks can lead to big problems if it is not caught in time, so it is important to look for warning signs. The biggest warning sign is water spots on your ceiling or walls. You can also find water spots or wet roof decking seen through the attic. If you look at your roof you will find missing, cracked, or damaged shingles. For your safety, please allow one of our specialists to come assess your roof. Lastly, you can find missing or damaged flashing or boot covers to roof penetrations. Roof leaks are not fun, so look for the warning signs and replace your roof before it becomes a bigger issue.
Old Roof: Roofs eventually need to be replaced and we want you to know what signs you should be looking for in an old roof. There are a number of different things you should be look for such as the shingle’s edges curled or cupped. Another warning sign are bald spots where granules are missing. We previous mentioned this, but cracked shingles can indicate an old roof. Dark streaks are a sign of algae which can make your roof look unattractive. Lastly, moss can grow on your roof’s surface which can cause cosmetic issues and damage granules during freezing temperatures. In general roofs last about 20 years, so if it’s been more than that then you might want to consult with our roof experts in getting a new roof.
