Most homeowners and commercial business owners know that eventually their roof will need to be replaced.
When a roof needs to be replaced, there are usually some recognizable signs telling us it’s time.
If you are worried about your roof holding up, make sure to keep an eye out for some of these signs.
If the roof is leaking, this is an immediate sign that the roof needs to be evaluated for a roof replacement. Some leaks are small and owners may not notice them right away.
Minor leaks could lead to significant damage to the roof deck and inside the building. This damage can also cause unhealthy conditions for the inhabitants inside the home or business due to the growth of molds and/or mildews.
An experienced roofing contractor can identify if a repair is necessary to stop the leak or if the roofing system is exhausted and needs to be replaced.
Getting a repair early on can sometimes save an owner from very extensive repairs later as the water damage advances into the roof and building structure.
Once you spot a leak, don’t delay. Have your roof checked out right away.
Worn Out Shingles or Metal Roofing
If one notices the shingles to be curling, frayed, torn, or losing granules, these may be a sign that the roof needs to be replaced.
If you have a metal roof, loose panels, rust, and/or loose and missing screws are noticeable signs that the roof needs to be evaluated by an experienced roofing contractor.
As asphalt architectural roofers and metal roof installers, A Quality Roof Now can help you decide which type of roof will best fit for your situation and be a sound investment for your home or business.
If You Notice Moss Growing or Discoloration
Even here in the Tri-Cities area and in the Yakima Valley of South Central Washington, moss can grow on top of a roof. This is true especially if the roof is located in a shaded or partly shaded area.
This organic growth can cause damage because it traps moisture against the roof surface.
Not only is moss ugly and is a blemish to the beauty of your home or business, it can actually premature the life of your roof by leading to major roof system problems.
If you notice some discoloration or moss growing, contact A Quality Roof Now to remove the organic material and check the components of your roof.
How Old is Your Roof?
Roofing systems need to be replaced after a certain period. If you have an older house, it’s important to know when the last time the roof was replaced. If it’s more than 20-25 years old, it’s probably time to replace the roof with a brand new one.
