Even a well-maintained roof will eventually succumb to the effects of wear and tear and need to be replaced. But how do you know when the time is right to replace your roof?
Today, Arry’s Roofing Services Inc., one of the leading roofing company in the area, lists the top four signs it’s time for a roof replacement.
The age of your roof is a big factor in its longevity and performance. For instance, asphalt shingles, the most popular type of roofing material in the United States, are expected to last 20-30 years with proper maintenance. If your roof is at the upper end of this range and is showing signs of damage, it’s probably best to replace it.
2. Cupping and Curling
Cupping and curling are two signs of roof damage. Cupping occurs when edges of the shingles turn upward, and curling occurs when the edges remain flat while the middle part starts to come up. Both are caused by weathering, which can later lead to leaks.
Any time water enters your home through your roof, you have a big problem. Once moisture infiltrates your home, you’re faced with other kinds of structural damage. Schedule a meeting with your local roofing contractor promptly to deal with this problem.
This issue is often a result of decking problems or, worse, foundation issues. Your home may not be in imminent danger when your roof begins to sag, but it’s best to schedule a roof inspection to find out what may be causing this problem.
