Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects the rest of the house and your family from heat, water, and other weather conditions. Watching out for warning signs that you need to repair or replace your roof can help minimize the cost and prevent bigger damages on your property.
In many cases, a full-on roof replacement isn’t necessary if your roof is partially damaged. Therefore, the sooner you address the roofing issues you might have, the less it costs you to fix them. To find out whether you need to repair or replace your roof, schedule a FREE roof inspection with Utopia Roofing by calling (480) 291-5006. We have a next-day inspection available if you need an urgent service for your roof.
Your Roof is Reaching the End of Its Lifespan
The lifespan of most shingle roofs is 20 – 25 years, 30 years at max. If your roof is close to the end of its life expectancy, even if there is no sign of damage, it’s time to prepare for a roof replacement. You can reach out to a few local roofers to request quotes or inspections. Utopia Roofing is offering FREE roof inspections with no obligation. Call (480) 291-5006 to schedule with us.
Missing, Curling, or Buckling Shingles
Just like most materials, shingles can be worn out due to weathering. Some common forms of shingle damage are missing, curling and buckling. Buckling and curling are the results of asphalt shingles not laying flat, which will not provide efficient protection to the house.
Missing shingles can happen because of strong wind or rain. It’s also important to look out for debris in your gutters. The presence of shingle debris in your gutters is the tell-tale sign that your shingles have started to disintegrate.
Look closely for water spots, streaks, or stains, on the ceiling, walls, or in the attic, especially after rain. Although water leaks are the result of many issues, a damaged roof can be the culprit. In this case, you might want to contact your local roofing pro to inspect the damage and determine the source of the leak.
Over time, moisture can damage the supporting structure underneath your roof and result in drooping or sagging. If you notice your roof is caving inward instead of staying straight, it might be time for a roof replacement.
Your Neighbors are Getting New Roofs
This is one of the more obvious signs that you need a roof repair or replacement. Houses that are built in the same period typically have the same roof lifespan. Under the same weather conditions, when your neighbors’ roofs are damaged, it can mean that yours might be too. Even if you don’t see any signs of damage on your roof, it doesn’t hurt to ask your neighbors why they need to repair or replace theirs.
When you notice any of these signs happening to your roof, or you just want to make sure your roof is in its best condition, do not hesitate to contact your local roofing companies. Many companies, including Utopia, offer free inspections. The best practice is to always talk to multiple companies before making your final decision.
