Natural Wear And Tear On Roofts Through Time
Deciding if your roof just needs a small repair job or if your entire roof needs to be replaced can be a very tough decision for any homeowner to make.
That is why having Tallent Construction/ Roofing Chattanooga come and do a free inspection of your roof can remove the stress of trying to make the decision on your own. Also, it gives you peace of mind to know that you have a certified roofing company giving you their professional opinion.
Roof replacements are an essential step to taking care of your home or business. You should always feel safe under the protection of your roof. But through time it will slowly become damaged due to the sun, rain, wind, hail and extreme temperature differences. This effect of mother nature can make your roof crack or begin to leak.
Whether you have shingles or tiles the roof will slowly deteriorate, the roof granulation will start to fall off, causing your roof to crumble and your ceiling to get damaged or stained. This is why every roof will eventually need to be replaced. The question is, when?
When Do You Need A New Roof?
When homeowners ask us, “When do I need my roof to be replaced?” they’re looking to find out if they have a small problem (such as a small leak that needs attention) or if a complete roof replacement may be necessary.
When it comes to fixing or replacing your roof we always look for 2 main things.
- How old is the roof?
Knowing the age of the home or building allows you to look at the roof and make a wise assumption as to approximately how long ago the roof was installed or replaced.
- What materials is your roof made of?
There are many different types of roofing materials and shingles out on the market. The average lifespan of a shingle is approximately 20 years. However, depending on the brand and the quality of the shingles (whether they are 3-tab or dimensional) that time could change. There are signs of deterioration that a trained professional will see.
Knowing these 2 things will help any roofer predict if your roof needs some simple touch up work or if it would be better to have a new roof installed.
How To Know If You Need A New Roof Or Not?
Once we know how old your house is and what material your roof is made of, there are 3 other things we look for before deciding if it is time for a new roof or not.
- Unusual Dark Streaks or Ripples
If you see dark streaks or warped ripples on your roof that could be a sign of airborne algae. While not the difference between life or death for the roof, algae can create further danger on your roof and your home. This is why it is definitely worth a free inspection before it gets any worse!
- Curled, Warped, Broken or Cracked
Curled, Warped, Broken or Cracked Shingles that are curled or warped, broken or cracked are oftentimes a sign of airborne algae due to weathering. Curled shingles (or warped shingles) will often separate from each other allowing rain and moisture to seep in. This causes them to crack and fall apart where they once overlapped each other. This means it may be time for a new roof.
- Other people in the neighborhood replacing their roofs
If you live in a neighborhood or a subdivision with multiple houses in it, chances are that the houses were all built close to the same time. So if you notice several people replacing their roofs about the same time there is a strong chance that it is time to think about having your house re-roofed too.
Regardless of the condition of your roof, it is always reassuring to have roofing inspectors come and take a free look at your roof to give you the peace of mind and be totally aware of how strong and safe your roof currently is and what condition it is physically in.
