When Do I Need to Replace My Roof?

Carolyn Lynch

1. Check Your Records

Home improvement records are something you should check before you start any physical work. Using these records, you can determine the date and material of your roof's installation. By doing this, you'll know when it's time to replace it.

2. Inspect Your Attic

Try investigating in an easy-to-access attic before climbing on your roof. You require to be on the lookout for a few particular things. The presence of beams of light is a problem, for instance. Your roof can develop gaps due to weathering. Stains and streaks are also signs of roof leaks. A thorough attic inspection can help you catch potential problems before they become more serious.

3. Shingle State

Let's inspect your roof from outside now. If the shingles are out of place or have cracks or damage from weathering, you need to look for them. They should be flat. Your roof may need to be repaired if any of these symptoms occur.

4. Broken Flashing

Vents, skylights, and chimneys are sealed with roof flashing. Rain and other weather cannot pass through this. Seals should be checked regularly to make sure they are in good condition. Leaks caused by cracks or tears can cause the interior of your roof to be damaged by water.

5. Rot and Mold

In addition to rotting boards, mold, moss growth, or sagging in your roofing, water build-up can lead to many other problems. A replacement roof is the best choice if this is the case. This will prevent further property or health damage.

Keep a Level Head

A few of these signs may mean you can use a completely new roof. You should still fix your problems before they worsen, even if they are small. Taking care of minor issues now can prevent major headaches later on.
