A roof replacement is a huge, complex undertaking–and the last resort when repair work no longer helps your roofing system. You’ll know it’s time to get a new roof for your home because the warning signs will most likely have become very obvious at this point. Here Arrowhead Roofing, a trusted expert in flat roof repair, discusses when a roof replacement makes more sense than repairs.
Your roof already has massive leaks. We’re not talking about occasional drips coming from the ceiling either, but unbroken lines of flowing water that leave stains and streaks on your walls. Leaks that cover a large area usually indicate serious damage to your roofing system. Climb up into your attic and check whether there’s mold and rot in the rafters, decking or structural posts. If there are holes in the roof big enough to allow sunlight to stream in, then you should definitely consider a prompt replacement of your existing system.
Your roof is nearing the end of its life–or has already passed it. An old, failing roof is generally indicated by curling, buckling, cracked and “bald” shingles. The bald part is the result of excessive granule loss, which means the roofing materials have already lost most of their weather resistance. While roof repairs can help extend the lifespan of your system, they can only do so up to a certain point. An old, failing roof won’t do you any favors in the long run, so you should just have it replaced instead of continuing with repairs.
Your roof has started to sag. Ring the alarm, because this is probably the most serious indicator of a failed roof. If the system has started to sag, this is a sure sign that its structural integrity has already been compromised. A sagging roof is a huge safety hazard. To keep yourself and your family safe, call a trusted roofing company like Arrowhead Roofing for a replacement ASAP.
