Your roofing is your house’s raincoat
—it keeps the elements where they belong: outdoors. Like a bucket, however, one hole can compromise your entire structure, so storm roof repair isn’t always enough. You probably need a roof replacement if:
- Repairs can only act as a temporary cure.
- Your roof hasn’t been reshingled in years. Every roofing material has its own lifespan, but most common varieties last around 20 years.
- Granules are collecting in your gutters and downspouts. Heavy shedding is a sign that your roof has reached the end of its lifespan.
- Your flashing is cracking.
- You still have cement or tar flashing. These materials aren’t durable, so it’s best to upgrade to a robust metal alternative.
- Your roof is sagging. This could be due to trapped moisture or rotting wood.
- Your damage is widespread and your roof doesn’t comply with building codes.
- A tree or other structure has fallen on your roof during the storm.
Not all damage is worthy of a replacement.
Shingles are expensive, so if your roof hasn’t yet reached its sell-by-date, you should try to see out your investment to the full wherever possible.
If the wind reached 45 miles per hour or more or your roof is pooling, it would be wise to arrange a professional inspection. As with any structure, a speedy repair can save you a fortune in incremental damage, particularly if you live in a stormy climate.
