Is It Time To Get Your Roof Replaced?
Almost every property owner at some point or another in their life will eventually be confronted with the need for a roof replacement. Replacing an old, worn roof not only makes your home more valuable, efficient, and appealing, but it also helps protect the interior from cold, dirt, snow, rain, wind and other potential dangers.
A roof replacement can be a huge decision. With some lifespans of 30 years or less, odds are great that sooner or later you’ll have to explore how to properly address an aging roof. At Paul J. Cazeault & Sons, we use only the finest quality material and dramatically limit your need for future costly repairs.
Warning Signs You Might Need a Roof Replacement
Broken Shingles Because shingles help your roofing shed water, any broken, torn, or missing shingles become entry points. If you find patches that are damaged or buckling instead of laying flat, then repairs or replacement are needed.
Curling or Clawing Shingles that curl are signs of weathering and indicate problems. There's cupping, when the edges of the shingles turn upward, and there's clawing, when the edges stay flat and the middle starts to come up.
Flashing The flashing around vents, skylights, and chimneys seals the seams of the roof from the weather. Though normally not visible to the untrained eye, examining these points for cracks or breaks could avoid potential leaks.
Granules in Gutters Once the granules fall off and the shingles start to bake, the quality of the roof will deteriorate in a hurry. Inconsistent darker colors on some parts is another sign the granules have worn away.
