Your roof is designed to last a long time, but it won’t last forever. You will eventually have to retire it. Proper maintenance will only delay the inevitable. You need to know the different signs that indicate that your roof is starting to fail.
Today, Wabo Roofing Systems talks about the red flags that indicate that it might be time for roof replacement.
Ruined Wall Paint
Paint peels, blisters or cracks because of moisture, which can be ubiquitous. Although paint deterioration is a fact of life, it should concern you when it begins to appear near the roofline. When the finish of your fascia boards or soffits begins to lose their integrity, then you need to call a roofer.
A poorly ventilated attic is prone to condensation due to excessive moisture. However, it usually takes more just than trapped hot air to soak the insulation. When it’s saturated following a storm, an undiscovered leak could be to blame.
Asphalt shingles show random, surface cracks when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light for too long. They turn more brittle as they lose their flexibility.
While it’s part of the aging process, you can’t give up too early. When some sections look worse than others, re-shingling can be a cost-effective way to buy you time before another roof replacement.
