In our last blog post, we discussed the common types roof leaks Texas homeowners encounter. But what should you do when it’s beyond repair? How do you know when it’s time to replace your roof? What signs do you look for?
Unfortunately, there comes a time when every home needs roof replacement services. Up against extreme hot and cold, and winds, hail and storms, roofing systems in the Fort Worth area are put to the test, with time eventually causing enough wear and tear to necessitate replacement.
Below we explain common factors & indicators, so you can make an informed decision when it’s time to replace your roof with the help of professionals at Roofing Solutions of Texas.
When Beyond Repair: It’s Time To Replace Your Roof
Okay, so you know your roof is no longer in tip-top shape. Is it time to replace your roof, or can you still get away with repairs?
Roof Lifespan – Traditional shingle roofs typically last between 15 to 30 years. Metal roofing systems and some other natural selections can last up to 50 years or more. It helps to know your roof’s original installation date.
Failing System – The “light of day” isn’t a good thing when it means light shining into your attic. Any rotting framework or decking, decaying underlaying or excessive shingle cracking points to replacement.
Outdated System – The roofing industry is making leaps and bounds in terms of energy-efficiency and durability. If your roof is in extremely poor shape or so old it’s ugly, take advantage of replacement and invest in beautiful synthetics that last a lifetime.
Recurring Leaks – Hey, when you’re calling us left and right to fix porous flashing everywhere, you just may want to install a new roof system. Advancements make an initially costly investment worthwhile by saving on repeat repairs.
Unsightly Appearance – Can you simply not stand the way your roof looks, all the missing shingles, and bubbling and peeling around your roof? Or, perhaps you’re seeing a ton of granules from shingles in your gutters or yard. If so, it’s likely a sign of replacement.
