There are a few ways to determine if it’s time to replace your roof.
Age: Roofs can generally last around 2 decades. If your roof is getting close to the 20-year mark, it may be nearing the end of its expected lifespan.
Leaks: If you notice leaking inside your home, there might be some serious water damage, which can cause extensive structural damage as well. Water can damage rafters, plywood sheathings, ceilings, walls, and more. In some cases it can be much cheaper to replace the whole roof, rather than going through a more expensive patch-and-fix process.
Appearance: Shingles that have begun to curl, break or warp are a good indication that it’s time for a re-roofing service.
There are many instances in why your roof may be leaking. Flashings are frequently identified as an area that causes the most leaks, and it is critical that they be completely waterproof in order to avoid this. Damaged shingles leave the roof exposed to leaks and should be repaired without delay. Air conditioning and air ventilation, if not done properly, can also cause ice damming, frost, and condensation stockpiling.
Due to their excellent waterproof quality, our team at Chappelle offers asphalt roofing shingles as a covering for your roof to avoid future leakage.
