Roof replacements are necessary for homeowners; it is just a matter of when. Roofs have a lifespan of 20 to 25 years. During that time, your roof will experience normal wear and tear from wind, rain, hail, and snow. This prolonged exposure to the weather elements may be the reason your roof needs replacing, or it may be due to a more severe and immediate issue.
As a homeowner, it is important you pay attention to the state of your roofing system. If you notice any of the signs of damage listed above, or have experienced any roofing related issues, contact a local roofer. These professionals can inspect your roof and identify unseen damage. Remember, even if you do not see visible signs of damage, it may still be time for a complete roof replacement.
The process of replacing a roof is significantly more labor-intensive than roof repairs or overlays. First, all existing roofing materials are removed. Then, the roofing system and wood decking are inspected. Any wet or rotting wood will be replaced. Next, the ice and water barrier, drip edge, and flashing will be installed. This creates a waterproof barrier, therefore protecting the framing and preventing future leaks. Lastly, new roofing materials are installed.
A complete roof replacement can be costly, but it is the best way to ensure the longevity of your roof. Be certain the process will be done correctly by hiring an experienced roofing company.
