Signs You Need a New Roof
DO YOU NEED A NEW ROOF?
In our business this is a frequently asked question. We understand that no one wants to spend their hard-earned money on a roof, but sometimes it can save you money in the long run. Would you put a band-aid on a cut that needs stiches? Obviously not. So sometimes repairing a roof instead of replacing it would be in the same vein.
Many roofs, if original to the home, only came with an approximate 20–25-year shingle life. Due to harsh eastern PA weather, lack of venting, or over venting there are often times shingles may not last that long.
What are the signs that you may need a new roof?
You can look for:
1. Shingles that are cracked, curling, or missing
2. Shingle granules near or in your downspouts for shingle material
3. Signs of mold, algae, moss, and mildew growth on your roof
4. Leaks that tend to occur more than once a year Homeowners spend around 4% of their home’s value on repair and upkeep.
As inflation continues to be an issue and costs continue to rise across the country, we encourage you to have a professional roofing company inspect your roof and provide you with reliable and trustworthy advice.
