You have seen some water stains in your walls or attic space after you have just gone through a season of really heavy weather, or maybe some shingles have disappeared. These are just a few of the signs that may cause you to ask the question: Is it time to replace my roof? Here at Ascension General Contractors, we are here to help you answer that question. Some other helpful telltale signs can be:
If shingles are missing or appear warped and damaged, you know that’s a sign that repairs to your roof need to happen right away if you are to avoid leaks and future water damages. Water stains in the attic are a telltale sign that you might need to actually replace your roof completely.
Rain spouts can pull away from the building if they are clogged with water and debris, and this can do damage to the edges and corners of your roof and even your walls, both inside and out. You can take a walk around your building to see if there is any sign of this kind of damage even from where you may be standing. If the damage has been present for too long, your roofing may have experienced enough damage that it needs to be replaced.
As any roof ages, it gets weaker. Replacing a roof is both smart and necessary if it has been 10-15 years or more, whether there are any signs of weakening or not. The instability of a roof may not be readily apparent, and a big storm that brings lots of rain or snow can become dangerous in a situation where the owner of the building is unaware of this.
Conducting regular inspections of all parts of your roofing will aid you when it comes to the condition of your roof. It can be easy to forget about it, but a damaged roof can quickly become a huge issue, allowing water to intrude into every part of your home or business and cause water damage.
