Do You Need a New Roof?

A roof is one of the least thought of components in a home, but one of the most important. There are many benefits to having a healthy roof such as keeping you safe during severe weather, protecting your investment in your home, as well as adding to the overall beauty and curb appeal of your home. If you are unsure of your roof's health or are debating whether or not you need a new roof, here are some factors to consider.

Damaged Shingles

When you are looking at your roof, check for shingles that are curling, buckling, crackling, falling off or are missing. When shingles are curling, the corners of your shingles detach from the roof and curl up into the air. This is a sign that your shingles are old or worn out. If you see a shingle raised in the middle, then they are most likely buckling due to poor ventilation. Bald spots where granules are missing or dark streaks could also be a sign of damage.

Water Leaks

It is important that your roof protects your home from water leaks. Water can cause severe damage to your home that can be costly to fix. When water penetrates your roof, moisture will build up. As a result mold may develop and contaminate your air quality. Also, when water gets into your attic it may make its way into your insulation. Higher utility bills, structural issues and fire hazards are the effects of water sitting in your home's walls. Get help as soon as possible from a professional roofing contractor to prevent further damage.

Roof Age

Another factor to consider is the age of your roof. Even with regular repairs and maintenance, eventually a roof will experience wear and tear. Over time, your roof will experience inclement weather that will lead to damage to your roof. Though many shingles today are produced for durability, there will come a day that your roof will need to be replaced.

Location and Weather

Certain geographic areas deal with harsher weather conditions than others. For example, if you live in Texas, you have a high chance of experiencing hailstorms, hurricanes, heavy winds and extremely hot summers. Homeowners in some areas are at an increased risk of weather-related roof damages.

Neighbors Are Getting New Roofs

Chances are that you and your neighbor's home was built around the same period. Because they are in such close proximity, they also are experiencing the same weather conditions. If you notice that many of your neighbors are getting new roofs, it is probably a good idea to schedule a roof inspection with a local roofing company to check the condition of your roof.

Poor Curb Appeal

The condition of your roof can make your home's curbside appeal better or worse. You may be a homeowner that cares about the aesthetic of your home. You probably would not want an ugly roof ruining the rest of your beautiful home. Also, if you are looking to sell your home, a new roof will add value to your property.
