When to Repair or Replace Your Roof

Our homes are probably the largest investment that we'll make in our lives, and it's important to keep them properly maintained. Roof repair and replacement is an important part of that maintenance, but it can be difficult to know exactly when your roof needs attention. Team Roofing is here to help you keep your roof in top shape! Let's take a look at a few of the signs that it may be time to replace or fix your roof.

Repair or Replace, and When?

Fortunately, not all roof issues require replacement. If the damage is in a limited area, our pros can simply replace the affected materials and have your roof as good as new. The passage of time is the most common reason we advise roof replacement. Whatever your exact situation might be, we are here to take care of it!

  • If you can notice the damage, it's time for new materials. Shingles can buckle, curl, and come loose. If you see any part of your roof with damaged materials, give us a call so we can fix it before it gets worse.
  • Dark streaks or algae growth can be indicators of water and moisture seepage. Once water infiltrates your roof, it may be too late for a repair. This situation should be fixed immediately because it can lead to mold and mildew growing in your home.
  • Depending on the materials and manufacturer's guidelines, it may be time for a new roof after 20 years. If you're not sure if your roof's time is up, we can conduct a multi-point inspection and determine the best way forward.

Team Roofing is here to take care of all of your residential roofing needs, whether you need a repair or a replacement, we're the Team for the job. Contact us for a free roof inspection today!
