4 Signs You Should Replace Your Roof

When You Should Get A New Roof

Most homeowners don’t think about their roofs until they notice an issue such as discovering shingles laying in their yard or when they have roof leaks in their home. “The biggest sign that someone needs a roof replacement is hail damage, followed by leaking and wind damage.” Your roof is a priority and is something that you cannot delay. Do not wait until you find shingles in your yard or water is coming through your home during a rainstorm. Here are the top 4 reasons you should get a new roof!

Your Roof Has Hail Damage

Oklahoma homeowners are far too familiar with hail storms and know the devastation that they can bring. Do not let your hail damage go unchecked especially if you have an asphalt roof. When the granules are knocked off the shingles the asphalt beneath becomes exposed to the sun, rain, wind, and leading to accelerated deterioration. If they go unchecked, hailstone hits can lead to roof leaks and interior damage to your home.

Multiple Repairs For Roof Leaks

Chronic roof leaks is a major sign that you should invest in a full roof replacement. During the removal of your old roof, the roofer will fix and correct any core issues causing leaks.

Your Roof Has Severe Wind Damage

Oklahoma City is one of the windest cities in the United States. During Oklahoma storms, there can be areas that experience wind gusts upwards of 60mph. If you’ve recently experienced winds of 45 mph or higher, then call us and we will get outside and take a look at your roof for some of the common signs of roof damage. Signs of wind damage on a roof include loose or missing shingles, chimney issues, curling or peeling shingles, granule loss, damaged soffit or fascia, and indoor leaks. High winds can also cause tree branches to fall and damage a roof.

Your Roof Is Over 15-20 Years Old

If you are a new homebuyer, be sure to check with the seller to see when the roof was last inspected and replaced. If you are not sure, you can always check your home’s records to find out when the last replacement was.
