You should always prioritize your roof’s condition. When your roof is compromised because of aging and damage, consider replacing it. Repair work may seem the convenient solution, but you should properly see what your roof needs. For some homeowners, the warning signs may be hard to see, making it hard to determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced.
1. Badly Damaged
You should first check how badly your roof is damaged. When checking for the severity of damage to your roof, you should also look inside your home. Roof damage can show in the interior through attic and wall stains. On the outside, check for bruising or loose shingles. Check for sagging, bending and cracking of shingles.
List all of the damage you noticed, and, if it’s too expensive for spot repairs, it’s time for a roof replacement. In the event of intense weather-related damage like storms and hurricanes, you have to replace your roof. Replacing your roof instead of just repairing it may even save you money.
2. New Look
You have the freedom to replace your roof anytime you want. You can transform your home to any style and design you desire. A new roof can also be an investment by raising the value of your home.
Your roof ages over the years. Generally, even with proper maintenance, your roof has only a few decades before it shows aging and damage. You should also consider that your roof may have gone through countless roof repairs during its years. It’s a sign to change your roof when the repairs are becoming constant and expensive.
4. Not Compliant With Current Building Codes
Your roof should be compliant with the current building code in your area. Not complying with it can cause your home to devalue. It’s a good investment to keep your roofing system up-to-date and upgraded.
