Are you sure you need a new roof?
For most homeowners, replacing Cleveland roofing is the largest maintenance-related expense they will ever pay out. It’s always preferable to be able to plan for a bill that will cost thousands of dollars, rather than be surprised when your roof can no longer provide the protection your home needs. Here are some signs your roof is coming to the end of its service life and replacement should be scheduled for the near future.
- Leak problems. If your roof is experiencing multiple leaks in different areas, it may be time to consider replacement. Sometimes you may not even be aware of leaks (it can take months for evidence to appear), so it’s a good idea to occasionally inspect your attic with a flashlight following a good rain for signs of water infiltration.
- Signs of wear. Just like a person, shingles will start to demonstrate signs of aging as time goes by. These may include curling and cracking as shingles become more brittle. More evidence could be found in the gutters: if you can see a large amount of protective granules washed into your gutter troughs, shingles could be failing.
- Storm damage. Serious storm damage that includes large hail and strong winds can leave your roof weakened due to bruising and cracking of the shingles. It’s important to follow up with a professional roof inspection after a major storm to ensure your roof hasn’t been severely damaged. In cases of damage, homeowner’s insurance should cover the expense.
- Age. If your roof is reaching the end of its life as recommended by the manufacturer, it is usually better to plan for replacement than to attempt repairs on an old roof.
