Spring is here and that means rain rain rain. 🌧 It’s a good time to contact a trusted roofer for a free inspection.
Here are 5 signs you will need a new roof.
Age: The age of your roof is a major factor in determining whether you need a new one. Most roofs have a lifespan of 20-25 years, after which they start to deteriorate and lose their effectiveness. If your roof is approaching or has passed its expected lifespan, it’s time to start considering a replacement.
Missing or Damaged Shingles: If you notice missing or damaged shingles on your roof, it’s a clear sign that you need a new one. Shingles that are cracked, curled, or missing altogether can allow water to seep into your home, leading to water damage and other issues such as mold.
Leaks: If you notice water stains on your ceiling or walls, or if you see water coming through your roof during heavy rain or snow, you likely have a leak. Even if the leak is small, it’s important to address it promptly before it causes more damage.
Sagging or Drooping: If you notice any sagging or drooping in your roof, it’s a sign that the structure is compromised and may be at risk of collapsing. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including water damage, rot, and a weakened structure.
Energy Bills: If you’ve noticed a steady increase in your energy bills, it may be a sign that your roof is no longer properly insulated. This can be caused by wear and tear over time or damage to the roof. If you’re experiencing higher energy bills than normal, it’s worth having your roof inspected to determine if it’s time for a replacement.
Do not put off getting a new roof! It’s your first line of defense against the elements and when damaged or in need of replacement, can cause repair expenses to skyrocket if not addressed.
There is also a possibility that your homeowners insurance will replace the roof FREE or at the expense of your deductible. As a licensed insurance restoration company, The SmartHomes Group LLC can assist with this process and even negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf for your best replacement.
