Find Out If It's Time For A Roof Replacement


When you own a home, it is important for you to make sure that you are always keeping an eye on the condition of your roof. This way, you will know when it is time for a new roof to be put on. If you would like to ensure that you will know when it is time for a roof replacement, you will want to make sure that you are checking out the following information.

The Shingles Are Breaking

Have you noticed a single shingle on the ground near your house? Is this possibly a one time occurrence or is there a chance that this is the beginning of the end of the life of your shingles up there on the roof? After all, depending on the brand and style of shingles that were used, they may have only had a fifteen or twenty year warranty. Go ahead and climb a ladder and take a closer look at the shingles on your roof. Does it look as though a lot of them are starting to come loose? If so and these shingles are very old, you will want to simply contact a roofing company for a total replacement.

You Are Getting Water In Your Home In Several Places

One leak in the roof is not always a sign that you need to have a total roof replacement, unless there are other issues happening up there. However, if you have found that there are actually a few different spots in the roof that are allowing water to come in, then there is a good chance that a total roof replacement might be in your best interest. If the roof is that old and in that bad of shape, then just fixing those couple of spots may only provide temporary relief from water coming into your home. It might only be a matter of time before you find that new leaks are forming.

The more you know about what it is that you need to look for when you are trying to decide if your roof just needs a few repairs or if the entire roof needs replaced, the easier it will be to make the right decision for you and your home. Always keep the contact information for a reputable, local roofing company either in your phone or on a piece of paper kept on the refrigerator. This way, should you experience any roofing emergencies, you will not have to worry about wasting a lot of time trying to dig around to locate the number of a roofer that you can trust. You will already have their information on hand.
