After 2020, many are looking for ways to positively transform different parts of their lives. Some homeowners are likely thinking about finally going through with some renovations, including their roof! If this is you, the new year is the perfect time to get a brand new roof. In this article, we will discuss some signs that indicate you should consider replacing your roof to start fresh.
The following are a few things you can look for to determine whether you might need a roof replacement this month.
In Houston, roofs last an average of 20 years, but this ultimately depends on what type of shingles are installed on your roof. Be sure to read our article about how long different roofs last in Houston.
When you can’t pinpoint how old your roof is, we recommend you go into your attic and carefully check for water stains and/or streaks along the ceiling and the corners.
When you can’t seem to spot water, does light seem to peek through the ceiling? Your Houston roof has multiple layers: the deck, 30-pound felt, your shingles, and shingle granules. If light is getting past all of those layers, then chances are water is as well because the material has broken through due to severe damage.
Though we don’t recommend you climb up onto your roof to see if your shingles are balding, we recommend that the next time you perform some Houston roof maintenance, you check your gutters to see if there are any shingle granules that wound up there. Once your shingles lose their granules, that loss of protection makes them deteriorate more quickly.
The best way to know for certain that it’s time for a Houston roof replacement is by getting a professional roof inspection. If you would like to start the new year with a roof replacement, then please contact us. We can’t wait to give you a brand new roof to start the year off right!
