When does your roof need replacement?

The roof of your home protects your family and possessions, so it is essential to keep an eye on the state of your roof, especially if your roof is over the 20-year mark. It can look good from the ground, but regular inspections should be part of your home maintenance routine. Naperville Roofing Inspectors and Contractors can advise you of upcoming problems or whether your roof may be at the end of its life. 

Here are some signs indicating it is time to replace your roof:

Underlay and shingles work together to keep water out of your home. A tear in the underlay may go unnoticed until it has caused a droopy, sagging roof from trapped moisture and rotting boards. At this point, structural damage to the roof’s foundation is likely, and it could collapse. Time to call Roofing Repair Naperville for honest advice on what is the best course of action. 

Wind can lift and crack the shingles and loosen the sealant and nails. Exposed nails will rust and eventually pop out, leading to a leaky, failed roof. Curling shingles indicate shingles are old, sub-par, incorrectly installed, or moisture in the attic. The problem with replacing worn and discolored shingles are that it is impossible to find matching shingles the same color as the originals. Roofing Replacement Naperville has affordable options for you when your roof starts to look like a chessboard, and brand-new shingles are required. 

Regularly checking for debris build-up behind your chimney and in your gutters can prevent ice dams, which cause rusted flashing and wood rot. Naperville Roofing can clean or replace and install new gutters and chimneys. 

The black streaks on your roof show algae feeding on the limestone in the shingles and left untreated causes premature shingle aging and granule loss. If you live in a development where your neighbors are experiencing similar problems, this would be a good time to call Roofing Company Naperville for a life-expectancy evaluation on your roof.
