Maintaining your roof is key to keeping your home structurally sound. After a while, however, maintenance and repair can only go so far. If your roof is showing more serious symptoms of damage, it might be time for a replacement. Watch out for these signs when determining if you need to call a commercial roofing company.
- The shingles are curled or damaged.: If the outer edges of your shingles are curling, or the middle parts are curving up, your roof may have weathered enough. By not laying flat on the surface of the roof, the shingles are creating openings for water to sneak through.
- There are shingles missing.: Especially if you notice shingles missing in large patches, it is probably time to replace the roof. It can get expensive and tedious to constantly replace just small sections of shingles, so decide if the problem is bad enough for a replacement.
- Your roof is old.: If your roof is over 20 years old, you should at least schedule an inspection. Even if the shingles seem to be holding up, there might be structural issues that you are not able to see.
- Light is leaking through.: Check inside of your attic to see if any sunlight is coming through the ceiling. This test exposes small cracks that you might not have noticed from the outside. Especially if these spaces get larger, they could let water in and set you up for major water damage.
- The roof is sagging.: A saggy roof could indicate several different structural issues, so call a professional to pinpoint exactly what is going on. This problem is only going to get worse, so be sure to schedule the inspection as soon as possible.
If you are noticing any of the above symptoms, it may be time for a replacement. Call a professional commercial roofing company to have your roof inspected as soon as possible. As it can be difficult to keep up with roofing maintenance, metal roofing can be a great option. While asphalt roofs need to be reproofed every 10 to 20 years, metal roofs can last a lifetime.
