Signs Your House Needs A Kingwood Roof Replacement
It’s a common belief that your Kingwood roof shingles will last as long as their warranty says they will. As ideal as this is, in Houston, the weather may have a greater say than the warranty does. Sure, it is very possible that your roof will last through the end of its warranty, but if a serious hurricane or multiple, damaging weather events take place back to back, then chances are you will need a Kingwood roof replacement before the warranty expires. Here are some signs to watch out for in order to find out if you need a Kingwood roof replacement.
How old your roof is is a great place to start when determining whether it’s time for a Kingwood roof replacement. In Houston, most roofs last an average of 15-20 years, more or less depending on your shingle quality and what weather events take place. So if you recall living under your current roof for that long, then it's crucial to get your roof looked at.
Missing Shingle Granules
Roof shingles are coated in granules that serve as an extra layer of protection. This way, granules are the first to take damage and preserve the underlying roofing. However, once there are bald spots on the shingles, it’s time for a Kingwood roof replacement, or at least some Kingwood roof repairs.
Sturdy and protective shingles should lay flat against the decking on your roof. If you notice they are starting to crease or curl, then this means they’re severely weakened and will no longer protect your roof sufficiently. If these shingles aren’t replaced, then your roof may quickly succumb to heavy rain and hurricane damage.
A roof that has saggy spots is a roof that is far too weakened to protect against storms. This is often due to rotting, which occurs when moisture gets trapped underneath curled or creased shingles. This trapped moisture reaches the underlying boards and, sometimes, the roof insulation.
