As earlier mentioned, there are certain signs that you can look out for that will clearly guide you on whether it’s time to have your roof replaced. To begin with, consider the age of your roof. If your roof’s life expectancy was ten years and it has surpassed that, and you find yourself constantly having your contractor around one weekend after the other to fix things, it may be time you replaced the roof.
When you realize that your roof is leaking into your attic, especially when the snow melts or after a rainstorm, it may be time to have the roof inspected and replaced. As mentioned a leaking roof can lead to structural damage which can also lead to the growth of molds due to the wetness.
There are more states that have now made it mandatory that homes be built using roofs that are energy saving. A good roof should have the capability of acting as an insulator against the heat and the cold. If this isn’t the case, you will realize that your monthly energy bills will be on the increase which will be a good indicator that it’s time to let go of your old roof and bring in a new one.
