Summer's Almost Over, Time For Roof Replacement?
Just like that, we are at the tail end of the 2019 summer! Although summer doesn’t officially end until September, most kids are already back at school, thus making it a great time to get a roof replacement.
Both new and longtime homeowners should consider having their roof inspected to determine whether any roof repairs or roof replacement is necessary. A complete roof replacement is usually necessary once the roof nears the 20-year mark. However, even if your roof is less than 20 years old or looks like it’s in good condition, there may be significant wear and tear unnoticeable to the naked eye. Houston roofs often sustain major damage from extreme weather conditions, thus lessening their lifetime. High heat, heavy rains, hail, and strong winds can all play a detrimental role in how your roof performs.
When To Consider Roof Replacement
During a roof inspection from our Houston roofing company, our professional roofing inspector examines every part of your roof to assess its overall health. If no issues are discovered or only minor roof repairs are necessary, our Houston roofing inspector will inform you of such, while providing a timeframe for how much longer your roof will last. In the event our roofing inspector discovers issues, they will point them out to you and explain the consequences of not properly addressing them.
A common sign of damage to your roof is a leak in your ceiling, as leaks are often caused by cracks, breaks, or tears in the roof. Correcting a roof leak quickly is imperative to avoiding more serious, expensive damages to your Houston roof in the near future.
A huge determining factor of your roof’s health is the condition of its shingles. Our city’s extreme weather conditions can cause your roof shingles to become weak and loosened. As a result, strong winds or flying debris can easily remove these shingles from your roof. If you notice shingles missing from your roof, this could be a sign that they are old or brittle, and a roof replacement is necessary.
