There are many obvious signs that your roof may need to be replaced, but there are some other things you’ll want to keep an eye out for, that are a bit subtler.
For this blog the experts at Great Western Roofing wanted to take a minute to address some of the signs that it may be time to consider getting a quote for re-roofing.
Everyone else is doing it
When developers start to build homes on a given plot of land, those homes tend to be constructed in blocks.
As you can imagine, these homes will also need to undergo certain types of repairs and maintenance at similar intervals.
Garage door systems may need to be replaced around the same time, they may need to be re-painted around the same time, and they’ll generally need to be re-roofed around the same time.
If the Millers and the Johnsons have re-roofed their homes in the past 12 months, that may be an indication that yours may need to be reroofed in the near future, as well.
Drips, leaks and water streaks
We can all agree that one of the most important functions of your roof involves keeping the outdoor weather, outside.
If you’ve begun to notice leaks or drips after rain storms, or you’ve begun to spot signs of water damage, you’ll want to reach out to a Colorado Springs roofing company ASAP.
At Great Western Roofing we’ll be happy to provide you with a free roof repair estimate. If we feel we can fix the problem, we’ll let you know. On the other hand, if your roof is getting up there in age, and we feel that re-roofing would be the best solution, we’ll provide you as much information as you’d like with regard to cost, timelines and what you can expect throughout the process.
You have moss on your roof
Your roof isn’t supposed to be green. When moss begins to grow on your roof, this can cause big, big problems for your roofing system. Why? Because moss will hold moisture against your shingles, and when your singles are immersed in moisture for extended periods of time, they’ll begin to degrade.
Your roof is more than 2 decades old
The average lifespan for a roof is between 20 and 25 years; if your roof is more than two decades old, it may be time to start researching roof replacement options. If your roof is older than your college-bound children and you have questions about whether it may be time to reroof your home, call Great Western Roofing today to schedule a free estimate.
