When Is It Time to Replace Your Roof?
To determine if you need a roof repair or replacement, the first place you should check is your attic. Get a flashlight and climb up under the eaves. See if there is light passing through the top of the house. Check the walls for dark stains and marks that can indicate roof leaks. Outside, inspect your roof for missing, cracked and buckling shingles. A sagging roof also needs to be replaced immediately.
Moreover, it would help to know when your roof was last replaced. It would give you an idea about when you need to replace it. For instance, asphalt shingles usually last for 25 years while an overlay typically needs replacement after 20 years. Make sure to hire a reputable contractor for your roof replacement like DryTech Roofing LLC. We only install quality materials like GAF roofing products and James Hardie siding.
