Your roof will start showing signs when it’s time to replace it. Weather, mold, mildew and regular wear and tear can all damage your roof. As experts in hail damage roof repair, Mountain Trail Restoration knows exactly when a roof is past its useful life. Here’s how to identify and deal with potential issues before they get out of hand:
Sagging Roof – This is a sure sign that the roof is damaged and needs replacing. Long-term and widespread water damage is usually the cause of a sagging roof. Another reason could be the weight of snow and ice. When you look at your roof from the outside, the roofline should be straight. If there’s a swag, dip or curve, you will more than likely need to replace your entire roof.
Damaged Flashing – Flashing that is separating, flaking and lifting, or has damaged caulking has begun to fail. Flashing is located around the eaves, chimney, valleys, stacks and skylights. Normal contraction and expansion of the roof typically cause the separation or lifting of flashing. When its fasteners become loose, water will be able to penetrate your home. Consider installing high-quality Pristine® Pinnacle shingles as your next roof replacement and have them installed by a pro.
Missing Shingles – This is a telltale sign that something is not right with your roof. As an immediate remedy, you can patch the affect area. However, in time, your roof may look like a checkerboard since it’s almost impossible to find new shingles that match your old ones. Many homeowners opt to replace the whole thing once and for all.
