What Causes Roof Damage?
Roof damage can be caused by any environmental impact. The level of damage your roof experiences may be determined by the age of your roof, the quality of its materials, and how often it receives repairs. Harsh weather tends to be the most difficult challenge to overcome without some level of repair. The most dangerous risk factors include:
- Aging materials
- Extremely cold or hot temperatures
- High winds
- Heavy precipitation
- Irregular repairs
- Improper installation
- Heavy foot traffic
How Do I Know If I Have a Roof Leak?
If your roof happens to take on damage that isn’t caught in time for a storm, you may have a roof leak on your hands. The following may be indicators that moisture has entered your house through the roof:
- Visible rot or dark spots in the attic
- Staining or discoloration on walls or ceilings
- Bulging walls or ceilings
- Matted or damp insulation
What Are the Different Types of Roofing Systems?
A wide variety of roofing shingles are available nowadays. Each type of system offers specific benefits, and some may be a better fit than others for your unique situation. Our roofing contractors specialize in many types of roofing systems, including the following:
- Metal Roofing
- Roofing Shingles
- Conventional Build-Up (BUR)
- Modified Build-Up (Mod Bit)
- Single Ply
How Long Will My Roof Last?
Though every roof is unique, we generally expect roofs to last 20-30 years. This lifespan is based on several factors, including weather damage and the type of roofing material used. During a roof inspection from one of our experts, we can accurately gauge how long your roof will safely last before replacement is needed.
Is It Possible to Extend the Lifetime of My Roof?
No matter how high quality the materials are, no roof will last forever. By keeping up with regular maintenance and roof analysis, you can extend the lifespan of your roof for as long as possible. Inspections should be performed by a roofing contractor at least once every year. It is beneficial to catch damage indicators early on and fix them with minor repairs. This regular upkeep will help you to prolong total replacements for as long as possible.
When Should I Replace My Roof?
If your roof has taken obvious damage, you should call our experts as soon as possible for an analysis and emergency repair. Otherwise, keep an eye out for the following indicators that you may need a new roof:
- Signs of moisture throughout the house
- Missing flashing or ice dams
- Damaged flashing or ice dams
- Curling or damaged shingles
- Animals in your attic
- Visible holes
How Much Does a New Roof Cost?
Since every house presents a unique set of circumstances, the overall cost of new roofs varies widely. When determining an estimate for the cost of your roof replacement, our contractors take the following factors into consideration:
- Roof size
- House shape
Should I Replace My Roof Myself?
While you may be capable of “DIY” -ing roof repairs, we would heavily advise against it. Improper installation may require expensive maintenance down the line. Attempting a one-person job without supervision from a professional is also extremely dangerous and could lead to severe injuries. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
