The roof of a home is important, it keeps cold air out in the winter, and in summer it keeps the heat from entering the home. It keeps the rain from leaking into the house and causing structural damage. Eventually, your roof will need repairing or replacing. If you don’t check for signs of wear and tear, it could mean thousands in repair. Most roofs only have a life cycle of 20 years. The following are signs you need a new roof or repair:
Three Signs you Need a New Roof
- Shingles are curling and/or buckling. An aging roof has shingles that curl or buckle. And it sometimes can even be seen from the ground, depending on the angle and pitch of the roof.
- Check the valleys. The valleys of the roof are where snow/ice and water can hang out the most. Most roof leaks come from damage in these valleys.
- Check our gutters. There could be roof particles in your gutters which can also be a sign that your roof needs repair or replacement.
