When was the last time you replaced your roofing? Your roofing should be in good condition to effectively protect you and your home. It’s your responsibility to properly take care of your roofing. To help you properly maintain your roof, roofing and siding repair professional Ken Morton & Sons lists signs that tell you it’s time to replace your roof.
How can you tell it’s time to replace your roof, instead of just repairing it? The following are warning signs you should watch out for to help you determine if it’s time to install new roofing:
- One of the first telltale signs is when your roof is aging and past its prime time. Whatever your roofing material is, you only have a few decades before your roofing deteriorates. If your roof is aging, it’s most likely costing you more compared to just installing a new roof.
- If your shingles and most of your roofing materials are badly damaged, it’s time to replace your windows. Your shingles are the first protective layer of your roof. If your shingles are missing, curling, and already have gaps, your roof is already compromised. Damaged shingles directly affect your roofing efficiency. To thoroughly inspect the extent of damage in your shingles and roofing, hire a trusted professional within your local roofing contractors.
- Another sign of a badly damaged roof that needs replacement is when there’s sunlight peeking in your attic. The sunlight inside your attic means there is enough space for the light to peek through. If light can penetrate your roofing, other harmful elements can compromise your roofing and attic too. Water, moisture, and mold can now easily cause damage inside your roofing system. The best way to prevent further damage to your home is upgrading to new roofing.
