Think You Might Need Friendswood Roof Replacement?
It’s pretty clear that Houston roof replacement is inevitable at some point or another, but homeowners certainly prefer to know for sure that they need a roof replacement. This way, they can plan for it beforehand to ensure they have an adequate roof replacement budget. In this article, we will tell you the different signs to look for that indicate it’s about time for Friendswood roof replacement.
Consider How Old Your Friendswood Roof Is
In the Greater Houston Area, roofs tend to last about 15 to 20 years before they need to be replaced, but a few factors can affect this:
- What type of roof shingles you installed
- What weather conditions your roof has endured
- How well you maintain your roof over the years
Are Your Shingles Bald In Some Spots?
Balding shingles is the term we use to describe roof shingles that are missing granules, the outermost, textured layer that most roof shingles feature. These granules don’t just serve an aesthetic purpose, though. In fact, they provide an extra layer of protection against wind damage and rain damage.
When too many granules are missing, the bare shingle has weakened significantly. Depending on how much weaker they are, we may recommend a few Friendswood roof repairs or a full Friendswood roof replacement.
Notice If Portions Of Your Roof Seem To Sag Or Dip
If your roof is sagging anywhere, then it means that it has been weakened by many of the aforementioned factors that cause roof damage. Roof sagging occurs when moisture from past storms gets trapped underneath shingles that have curled or creased due to wind damage, which eventually allows water to soak into the structure.
