Roof replacement is a tough decision but there are many indicators that will tell you if a replacement is the best option. The normal lifespan of a roof is around 15 years depending on the maintenance of the roof. Most roofs will start to leak and develop torn flashing within this time period. We often see missing, worn, or torn shingles which can be repaired. However, it is best to replace a roof if the number of missing tiles and shingles is very high.
The condition of the interior walls touching the roof is also important. Moisture marks on the walls and paint loss are clear indicators that the roof needs major repairs. In areas with extreme weather conditions like repeated and prolonged snow, hail and rains can expose parts of the house from the top. Often a situation like this is beyond getting a minor patch up and calls for an entire roof replacement. There are also other external factors that can lead to the need of a roof replacement, such as a faulty design.
Improper building materials may have been used when constructing your home which can cause a situation where you must replace the entire roof. Many factors come into consideration when going for a roof replacement, but the decision must be a deliberate one. These will include but aren't limited to your budget, time at hand, the requirement of alternative living space, and weather conditions in your area. Once you have come to a decision it is best to avoid delays as the roof conditions may worsen and harm other parts of your home, therefore causing more loss. Roof leakage can cause mold which is harmful to your home and a health hazard. Experienced roofers advise making a proper contract and ensure that proper insurance coverage is present. Following these steps will help you to make sure the roof over your head is a good one that lasts.
