Do I Need a New Roof?
Signs It’s Time for Roof Replacement
Knowing when to invest in a new roof isn’t always easy. However, there are some clear, telltale signs that you should look out for. An older roof requires more maintenance and frequent repairs, resulting in higher expenses. Eventually it becomes a smarter financial decision to purchase a new roof altogether.
Additionally, if you prolong roof replacement, you may put your property’s structure at risk. The following are warning signs to keep an eye out for:
- Leaking. A strong storm with high winds, heavy rain and/or hail can cause roof damage that might not be easy to detect. Leaks can be easy to spot if they’re dripping from your ceiling, but you should also take a look in the attic for leaks or water stains. These indicators could point to deteriorated flashing, damaged or missing shingles, or failing underlayment.
- Missing or damaged shingles. Shingles that are cracked, broken or that curl or buckle have reached the end of their service life. This exposes your home to the elements and can lead to worsening problems. We offer a wide selection of high-performance shingles that will look great and protect your home in all weather conditions.
- Paint peeling. If you notice interior or exterior paint that is beginning to peel and blister, it could potentially mean that water has seeped into your home and has become trapped due to poor ventilation.
- Higher energy bills. Inadequate insulation can cause your heating and cooling system to be overworked. If you notice a spike in your energy bills, your roof may be to blame. High Performance Homes has energy-saving roofing solutions to make your home as efficient as possible.
