Signs You Need a Roof Replacement
The roof can be difficult to see, which makes it challenging to know when it is time for a replacement, especially if you don’t know what to look for. Our team has compiled a list of signs to look out for that might indicate it’s time to give Frank Vincent Windows & Roofing a call.
You Have an Old Roof
Your typical asphalt shingle roof should last about 12 to 15 years. Metal or tile tends to last a little longer. When your roof is more than a dozen years old, it is time to start thinking about replacing it,
Curling or Missing Shingles
Over time, your roof is exposed to elements like rain, snow, wind, and the sun which cause it to wear down. As your roof’s shingles take a beating and begin to decay, a telltale sign is the corners of the shingles will start to curl up and peel. Any curling or missing shingles will make your home vulnerable.
Broken or Damaged Flashing
Flashing is what seals off the roof to keep moisture out at the joints. Damaged or broken flashing puts your roof at risk for water damage.
When walls of ice form at the edge of your roof, it is a sign your roof is not properly ventilated. As your gutters get backed up and freeze, it causes icicles to hang from the roof which puts pressure on the materials.
Discolored Ceilings and Walls
If you notice water stains on your ceiling or the walls of your home, it could mean you have a leak in your roof. Check the insulation in your attic and call a professional before going up on your roof.
Animals in Your Home
If a squirrel, bird, bat, possum, raccoon, or other animal finds its way into your attic, it likely came in through a hole in your roof. Hiring a professional to inspect your roof will hopefully catch this problem before your new roommate finds its way in.
