When is it Time for a New Roof?
Other than it pouring down inside your home, how does a homeowner know it is time for a new roof?
Most of the time a roof will reach the end of it’s life without some type of failure or significant damage occurring. It will look old, worn and will require you to perform maintenance more often than you should. When this occurs, it’s essential that you have the roof replaced immediately as larger problems could result later on.
5 Signs You Might Need a New Roof
Cracked or Peeling Paint
This is perhaps the most common example of water penetrating the roof. If you see signs of this on your ceilings or walls it may be time to call a roofer.
Outdated / Old Skylights
If skylights are not installed correctly or have lived past their useful life, they are a constant source of water coming into the home.
When the flashing erodes it creates a perfect place for water to seep into the house.
If the copper flashing has cracks water can find its way into your home.
Over time shingles can become brittle and split. This is another point of entry for water to enter the home.
A New Roof Without the Mess
We take extra care to keep our workspace as clean as possible. By putting up this cover over the front of the house it prevents the dust from getting all over the paint as we remove all the shingles.
It also prevents falling debris from ruining the landscape in front.
