Have you caught yourself looking at your roof lately and thinking, “Do we need to replace that soon?” Well, it’s possible that you do. At Team Roofing, we know the idea of replacing your roof can be daunting. But the reality is, a new roof can save you from all kinds of homeowner disasters. Sometimes, a simple roof repair is enough, but when the damage is significant enough, a full replacement may be necessary.
Here are three reasons you may need to be in the market for a new roof:
1. Leaking & Water Damage
If you have water dripping through your ceiling, it is very obvious that you have a major leak in your roof. But some leakage is not that obvious. You need to check if you have any dark water spots on the top of your roof, and you can do this by calling us and scheduling your free inspection. It’s worth taking the time to do a thorough inspection; even a small leak can lead to big consequences if left alone for too long! In this case, it’s absolutely better to be safe than sorry!
2. Major Storm Damage
In the south, major storms come almost every single year. A storm can cause roof damage by blowing off and cracking shingles and tiles. Major signs of storm damage to look out for are missing pieces of asphalt, dents in your shingles, and cracking in your shingles. You may think storm damage would be obvious, but just like water damage, it’s possible that damage can be hidden! A professional will know where to look for hidden damage.
3. An Aging Roof
Some aging is obvious. For example, if your roof is more than 15 years old, it is time to get a new roof. But sometimes the roof can age due to color from the sun and even accumulation of algae. Your roof is the first thing to get hit by weather, falling debris from trees, and other environmental factors. It is also your first line of defense against these things! An aging roof means more potential for problems. It’s best to double-check the age of your roof to make sure you’re not due for a replacement!
At the end of the day, you rely on your roof to keep you and your family safe. It may feel like a daunting undertaking, but a simple inspection will get you the answers you are looking for! Whether the result is a few simple repairs or a whole new roof, the result is the same: peace of mind.
