7 Signs You Need A New Roof
Sometimes the need for a new roof is abundantly clear to the naked eye. But there may be reasons that are harder to spot, like storm damage that can take weeks or years to reveal itself or not have to do with damage at all. Whatever the reason, the decision to get a new roof is always a major one. Roof replacement or installation represents a major investment for homeowners. Still replacing your roof positively affects the appearance, home value, and overall function of your home.
Do you own a house that you rent out? Are you thinking of putting your home up for sale? Is your present roof twenty years old or older? The Pinnacle Group recommends that you get a roof inspection to check for potential damages. This is the first step in determining if you need a new roof replacement. Some of the things to look for that can help you determine if a need a new roof are:
- Shingling that is missing, has tears, or are broken
- Any shingles that are cupped or curled on the edges
- Thick mold or moss that has grown over large areas of the roof
- Shingles that have gone “bald,” with substantial loss of their granule coating
- Numerous leaks coming through the roof
- The roof’s sheathing is soft and rotten
Roof replacement at the right time is crucial. When you wait too long, problems can increase and the cost is far more likely to go up when they go untreated. The Pinnacle Group’s inspection is geared to learning exactly what your roof needs.
