Storm damage plus ordinary wear and tear can take its toll on your home’s roof. Is it time that you had a brand new roof? It’s now June and even though summer doesn’t truly begin for another three weeks, it already feels like spring has ended. What does your roof look like now that spring is over? If you are interested in getting brand new roofing materials for your home, then here is what you need to know.
Signs You Need a New Roof
Let’s begin by looking at some signs that tell you that you need a new roof. Depending on the age of your home, it could be anywhere from twenty to twenty-five years since the last time the roof was replaced. Or perhaps you see water leaking inside when there shouldn’t be. If you can see that the shingles are cracked or damaged in some way, then it is a sure sign you need a new roof. Also, if the roof sags, that is another sign. Plus, there should not be mold growing inside your home, and moss should not be gathering on the roof.
Potential Roofing Materials
Roofing technology has come a long way over the years. Asphalt and slate shingles remain two of the most popular roofing materials since they are the most traditional. Metal roofing is also gaining popularity as it is incredibly durable and surprisingly energy efficient. In the end, you will want to consider all of your options before making a final selection.
The Work Phase Will be Loud
Once you have chosen the roofing materials and style of roof you want, then it’s time for the real work to start. Even so, be aware that the work phase will be loud. It is worthwhile to spend time away from home during work hours, but that might not always be possible.
See If the Roof Should Be Removed
Depending on the condition of your roof, it might be smarter for the old one to be stripped away and replaced entirely. This helps account for the presence of soft spots or rotted supports that could undermine the new roofing shingles that you have installed, especially if they are made of asphalt.
