HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME FOR A NEW ROOF?

A home’s roof has a set lifespan and, especially on older homes with original shingles, you’ll start noticing the signs that a replacement is at hand. Your roofing materials will tell you when it’s time to contact your favorite roofers and have them install a brand-new roof.

Deteriorated flashing, buckled shingles, and damaged ridge caps are clear signs that your roof is aging to the point that it requires replacement. When nails back up out of the roof decking, it can cause the shingles to buckle or raise, inviting water inside that can cause wood to rot, which will also need to be replaced. In general, using a professional to re-roof your home can save you time, money, and the headache that can occur when it isn’t done correctly in a DIY setting.
