Visible Signs – It Is Time To Replace Your Roof

February 21, 2017

Warmer weather returning to Southeastern Wisconsin has many residents thinking about projects to get their homes into tip-top shape. In many cases, this means replacing your roof. Whether you live in Kenosha, Racine, Franklin or Oak Creek, Dick’s Roof Repair Service Inc. is your best option for the roof you want at a price you can afford.

If your roof is approaching 20 years old, you should be thinking about how much longer you can avoid replacing it, so that you can be secure in the knowledge that your roof is watertight and secure for your family.

Besides age, there are many visible signals that can help you determine how badly your roof needs replacing.

  • APPEARANCE Is your roof starting to appear old and worn?  If it is, there is a good chance that your house is telling you that it’s time for a new roof. Before you suffer damaging leaks, have your roof looked over by a professional, so what looks like a minor appearance issue doesn’t turn into an emergency situation

  • SUBDIVISION In many neighborhoods, many of the homes are built around the same time. That means that they are not only the same age, but have also been subjected to the same weather conditions. Neighbors replacing their roofs should trigger you to explore the possibility that your roof might also need replacement.

  • SHINGLES Old shingles will curl and crack and the shingle tabs will cup. These are telltale signs that roof replacement is overdue. Bald spots appearing where shingle granules are missing also mean the roof needs attention.

  • DAMAGE Storms, wind, hail or falling debris can all create havoc on your home’s roof. When that happens, most homeowner insurance policies will assist with the cost of repairing the damage, often including a new roof.

  • LEAKS If your roof is leaking, it is likely that you have already waited longer than you should have. Leaks can become more predictable if you can see visible valleys on the roof where snow and water gather.

  • DARK STREAKS and moss can also be signs that a new roof is in order.
