The Top 5 Signs That The Roof Needs to Be Replaced

Year after year, the roof works hard to protect your house from the elements. Roofs, considering their significance, are often ignored, out of sight and out of mind before a significant catastrophe happens. A broken roof will cause havoc in other areas of your house, resulting in cracks, mold, and even structural problems.
You should prepare ahead to get the roof patched until it reaches a critical point by learning the symptoms of a failing roof. Take a look at the top signs why the roof needs to be fixed in the list below.

Your Charlotte roof is starting to reflect its age.

Traditional asphalt roofs have a 20 to 25-year life expectancy. If the roof is approaching this age (or older), it should be replaced as soon as possible. Roofs made of other materials, though less common than asphalt, can have varying life spans. Roofs made of sturdier materials like copper or tile can last up to 50 years, while wood shake roofs can last up to 30 years.

Knowing a little bit about the roof’s past and design will help you predict its lifetime. If the new shingles were layered over the old ones when your roof was patched the last time, the roof would most likely last less time. Often roofing contractors prefer a complete tear-off and reconstruction instead of overlaying new shingles on existing shingles because it doesn’t fix underlying problems. Proper ventilation also extends the life of the roof. A well-ventilated roof allows for more airflow and less moisture build-up.

If your roof is “young,” but it is displaying signs of damage, you might be able to get away with getting it fixed rather than having it removed completely. Our roofing specialists may assist you in deciding if your roof needs a full roof overhaul or minimal repairs.
