It’s every homeowner’s responsibility to keep an eye on their roof. Your roof is your home’s defense against bad weather. While it can usually do a great job of protecting your own interior, wear and tear can still take its toll. If you see signs of excessive damage, it’s time to call Jeff Woods Construction, the top roofing contractor in our area. Here are the four signs you might need a roof replacement soon:
- Your Roof is Sagging – This is a clear warning sign that you might need a new roof soon. A sagging roof usually indicates that there’s a structural issue. There can be problems with the supports on your foundation or with the decking in your attic. You need to call us even if the depression is small and localized because this is a problem that’s easier to take care of before it becomes worse.
- Your Roof is Over Two Decades Old – With regular maintenance, you can expect an asphalt shingle roof to protect your home for decades. However, problems will occur more frequently once your roof is over 20 years old. You need to schedule regular roof inspections with a roofer like us and start planning a roof replacement in the future. Call us so we can check your roof’s condition and give you an estimate of how long your roof is likely to last.
- You Find Shingle Granules In Your Gutters – This shows that your roof is nearing the end of its expected life span. These granules protect your shingles from the effects of long-term sun exposure. Without them, it’s only a matter of time until your shingles start curling, blistering, or cracking. Call us to evaluate the condition of your shingles and to look for any small leaks that might have formed.
- Your Roof Is Missing Shingles – Missing shingles mean that your underlayment is more vulnerable to roof leaks and damage. Water can damage your exposed underlayment, eventually reaching your attic and ceiling. Call us so we can fix this problem and to determine if its a sign that you need to start planning a roof replacement.
