How to Tell if You Need a New Roof

If it’s been years or decades since you have had a new roof installed on your home or business, there may be legitimate concerns about its longevity. If you think your roof may be nearing the end of its lifespan, there are normally a few common signs that will give you the answer. Here are some issues that may be signs that you need a new roof:

Cracked or Damaged Shingles

One of the easiest ways to tell if it’s time to have your roof replaced is to examine the condition of your shingles. If you have a shingle roof and notice that there are any cracked, curled or damaged shingles, it’s probably time to give an expert a call. Curling shingles can be a sign that the shingles were not properly lined up when they were installed, and cracked shingles can lead to dangerous leaks and more. We suggest that you call a roofing expert as soon as you see there are issues to prevent the possibility of further damage.

A Leaky Roof

If you notice a leak in your roof, it is important to have it inspected immediately. Leaks may cause other issues such as mold, mildew, structural damage to your home, potential fire hazards, and more. If you notice an exposed area on your roof or any missing shingles or gutters due to a recent storm, we suggest that you call us as soon as possible to see if you need a new roof. Our team not only has years of experience working on roofs but also installing and repairing gutter systems.

Weather Damage

The weather can get rough in Pennsylvania. If your roof has gone through several snowy winters and rainy springs, it may have sustained extensive damage. If your roof has needed repairs in the past because of harsh weather, you may need a full replacement now. Repeated damage caused by heavy snow and harsh wind and rain can weaken a roof to the point where it needs to be completely replaced. If you notice any of these warning signs, call us to inspect your roof to see if it is need of a replacement. We’ll assess the damage, let you know exactly what services are necessary, and quote you a fair price. We work with residential and commercial clients.
