From start to finish, we take care of each step and complete most jobs in less than one day.
4 Signs You Need to Replace Your Roof
There are a few clear signs that indicate it is time for a roof replacement.
1. Cracked and Damaged Shingles: Generally, you can notice problems with your shingles without even getting on the roof. If you notice them curling at the edges, cracking down the middle, or clearly damaged then your roof has run its course and you need to replace it.
2. Cracks and Breaks in the Flashing: The flashing is a thin metal strip that provides additional protection around chimneys, skylights, and vents. Because these areas are more susceptible to moisture damage and leaks, even a small crack can create extensive damage.
3. Roof Damaged with Age: Every roof has a lifespan and nothing lasts forever (although some roofing materials come close). The average lifespan of a standard asphalt shingle roof is between 15 and 20 years. For metal, the lifespans are easily double that at 50 years or longer. Knowing the age of your roof is an important step to understanding when it may need replacing.
4. Moss Growth: Moss grows in dark and humid environments. If your roof is shaded and fosters moss growth, it can quickly cause damage to the shingles. Especially at freezing temperatures, moss can be a major problem and should be removed by professionals as soon as possible.
