Your roof protects your home from the weather. If it is compromised and in need of constant repair, perhaps it’s time to let it go. A damaged roof can lead to costly problems. Tittle Brothers Construction tells you about the signs it’s time for a roof replacement, and the many benefits you will enjoy with a new roof.
Signs You Need To Re-Roof
The most important indicator is the roof’s age. Most roofing systems can last for up to 30 years. As it nears the end of its service life, problems will start occurring with more frequency.
- Leaks in the Attic – This means moisture has already invaded and is in the process of damaging your attic. This can be because of missing shingles, ice dams, or deteriorated flashing. In any case, don’t let the problem persist because severe water damage is costly.
- Stains on Interior Walls and Ceilings – Even if there’s no visible change to your shingles, there may be some damage to your underlayment that is letting water in. That’s why a thorough inspection by your trusted experts in roof and window repair in Ann Arbor is important.
- Buckling and Curling Shingles – This is a sign that your shingles are old and worn down. Curled shingles can no longer prevent water from soaking your roof. This can lead to damaged underlayment and leaks.
- Loss of Shingle Granules –These granules help with weatherproofing, so if you can see black spots on your roof, then it’s time for a new roof.
