How to know when its time to replace your roof

A solid and long-lasting roof is vital for keeping your house dry, cozy and safe despite of the weather. However, a leaky roof will cause a pain in the neck: it will be a source of a number of secondary issues. That’s why it’s vital not only to fix the problems at the early stage, but also to be aware of the reasons of roof damage and its possible solutions.

Have you ever asked yourself what is the best time to replace a roof or what can damage a roof?
Reasons can be various and numerous- starting from years-long damage and ending with a simple reason, for instance, incorrect installation. Let’s take a look at reasons and not only.

There are, of course, other signals indicating that it is high time to change the roof of your house or at least start repairing it. It can be the light coming through the attic, water damage signs or sagging from inside the attic, even unwanted plants. Moreover energy bills are rising – another headache.

As for the exterior signs, then first of all the damage can be caused by severe storm, hail, high winds and other extreme weather conditions.
Secondly, always keep a close eye on the age and state of your roof no matter what type of roofing system you have. Most roofs come with 20-year warranties. And if your roof hasn’t been replaced over two decades, then you should start considering replacement options.
Thus, the long service of your roof also depends on the material the roof is made of. For example in case of asphalt roof the main sign that your roof needs to be replaced is granule loss, and in case of metal roof are holes and cracks.
