Your roof is an essential part of keeping you and your family safe. When your roof gets old, it is no longer able to protect you the way it is meant to. Roofs last for an average of 30 years. As your roof approaches 30, you should start looking out for signs of damage. These signs will be an indicator that you should repair or replace your roof.
Outside of the Home
On the outside of the home, your roof’s shingles will show signs of aging. Look out for inconsistent shingle coloring and cracked or curled shingles. Debris in your gutters is another sign that it is time for replacement.
Inside of the Home
Water damage inside of the home is a sign that it’s time for replacement. This damage shows up as peeling paint and ceiling or wall stains. If you see these, do not hesitate! Your roof is probably already damaged and is now causing damage to the inside of your house.
When to Call
You want to fix the damage while it is on the outside of your home. This prevents expensive interior repairs down the line! If you see any signs of damage on the outside of your home, you should have your roof inspected. It may also be a good idea to get an inspection if you think that your roof has suffered damage in a storm. A professional will be able to determine what the best course of action is.
