Roof replacement is a daunting undertaking for homeowners. It’s a very costly project and it has a great impact on the aesthetic and overall value of your home. So how do you know if it’s time to consider replacing the roof on your home? Here are a few key tips that will help you determine if you should call a roofing contractor.
- An interior roof inspection: A flashlight and a look around your attic is the first step in understand the condition of your roof. A few key things to look for in your attic, include: 1. Light coming through the boards, 2. Stains, streaks and various dark stains that could be water, 3. Sagging or drooping patches that may indicate water is pooling, or 4. Damage caused by leaking water.
- An exterior roof inspection: After you’ve gotten a sense of the interior of your roof, it’s important to look at the exterior as well. Taking a look at the exterior of your roof can help you identify small issues that require attention before they become major issues. It’s very important to use caution when inspecting your roof. If you’re uncomfortable on a ladder, you should contact a roofing contractor to complete your exterior inspection. If you see cracked shingles, an accumulation of moss or algae, significant rot or pooling water, your roof may require replacement.
- Once you’ve inspected the interior and exterior of your roof, you should determine if you need a roofing contractor. It’s important to call a contractor even for minor roof repair and not a total replacement. Regular maintenance will prolong the life of your roof.
