Signs That Your Roof Might Be Well Past Its Life


Getting the roof repaired is infinitely less expensive and stressful than a total roof replacement for your Denton home.

But sometimes the repairs become recurrent and the roofer is there every month fixing something or the other. This is when it’s wiser to throw in the towel and get a total roof replacement, because the small roof repairs are adding up to cost a lot more than that!

So how do you tell when it’s time to get a new roof? Read on:

1.     Widespread Problems

If there is visible damage to huge chunks of the roofing shingles at the same time, it’s wiser to not attempt to get them fixed. The problem is only going to exacerbate so don’t suffer financially, and call your local Denton roofing contractor to get a new roofing system.

2.     Roofing System in Early 30s!

Homes typically have asphalt shingle roofs that can last for up to 30 years. After that, it’s a smart idea to get your local roofer to check the health and integrity of the roof.

Metal roofs can last for up to 50 years with good care and regular maintenance. But if these years have already passed, and the roof is acting up, it’s a good idea to replace it altogether.

3.     Roof that’s Turning Green!

If you can see mold growing on your roof, know that no amount of expert repair can bring it back. Yes your roofer will try to rescue it, fact is that heavy mold and moss growth is extremely hazardous to the health of those living in the house. Why risk it coming back again? Spare your loved one’s health and get a replacement.

4.     Check the Decking

The underside of your roof can tell you all you need to know about the health of your current roofing system. Sagging and staining are tell-tale signs of water damage that is now irreparable. This may even lead to damp spots or discoloration to appear on your home’s ceiling. Get a roof replacement.

5.     Check the Gutters

If you have asphalt shingles roofing, there may be signs of shedding shingle granules that get stuck in gutters. Other signs include inconsistently discolored patches on the shingles that indicate the granules are falling off.
