3 Signs That It Is Time To Repair Or Replace Your Roof

If you are like most homeowners, then you do not have the skills and knowledge to repair or replace your roof the way a professional San Rafael roofer can. Roofs that are nearing the end of their life and should be replaced soon will begin to look worn down and tired out, while a roof that needs repair may look perfectly fine to amateur eye. In either case, here are some factors that every property owner should consider to keep their home safe.

  • How Old Is Your Roof? The age of a roof is always the best way to know when it is time to think about replacement. Roofing materials are only designed to last a certain amount of time with proper maintenance some luck from the weather.
  • Roof Leaks – A huge warning sign that you need a reliable San Rafael roof repair service is when your roof is leaking. Just because we do not get much rain in California does not mean a roof is immune to leaks. To avoid added renovation expenses, get a roof inspection if you ever suspect water is leaking into your home. Common signs of a leaky roof are water spots on the ceiling and signs of water intruding into the attic.
  • Missing And Damaged Shingles – Periodically check your property for any pieces of or entire shingles that have blown off your roof. Also, look out for any damaged shingles. Damage includes things like curling, warping, buckling, cracks, tears, and granular loss. These types of things put your home at higher risk for other problems and should be repaired by a local San Rafael roofing contractor immediately. Damaged or missing flashing that is used at the perimeters and around chimneys, ventilation pipes, and anything protruding out of a roof should also be addressed ASAP.
