Replacing a roof is neither fun nor inexpensive but sometimes, it is necessary. The best thing you can do is contact your local roofer and have him do an inspection of your roof. Most minor issues are quick and easy to repair, but there are those times when starting from scratch is necessary. Here are a few ways to know it is time for a total roof replacement.
Asphalt shingles are a standard roofing choice. Roofing over 20 years old may need an inspection and review. Most shingles are only good for 20 years. They may look acceptable, but you could be losing efficiency because of their age. Metal roofs are much more durable and can last up to 70 years without needing replacement. If you built your home from scratch, you should know how old your roof is. If you bought a home, the age of the roof should have been disclosed to you at closing.
NON STOP FIXES
We appreciate business for sure. Repairing one to two shingles at a time is common. Serious damage, particularly after a bad storm, may require much more than a simple shingle replacement.
It is normal for utility bills to go up in the summer. Even if your roof is in age tolerances and lacks serious issue, it may be wise to consider a roof. Older roofs lack the insulation of newer, modern technologies. A better roofing material could be the perfect solution to a long term problem.
