Knowing When It is Time for a New Roof
One of the hardest things about roof replacement is determining when exactly you need a new roof. Replacing your roof too soon is a big waste of money. On the other hand, delaying replacement could lead to disastrous consequences, including leaks, severe water damage, higher repair or replacement costs, and decreased home value.
If you are wondering if it’s time for a new roof, Shadowfax Roofing and Solar is here to give you our honest and expert opinion. However, there are some signs that you can be looking out for that may indicate a roof replacement is in your near future.
Common signs that your roof may need to be replaced include:
Aged roofing materials
Mold and moss growth
Loose roof tiles
Light coming through your roof
Granules in gutters
What Are the Different Types of Roofing Materials?
The different types of roofing materials include solar tiles, asphalt shingles, wood shingles, metal roofing, stone-coated steel, slate, rubber slate, Spanish tiles, green roofs, and built-up roofing. Although nearly all mentioned materials are low maintenance, they differ in terms of appearance, ease of installation, lifespan, and cost. In addition, some are better suited for harsher climates than others. Let our roofers in San Jose help guide you through the process of selecting the perfect type of roofing material for your home.
The Importance of Hiring a Professional Roofer
Although many people would never dream of going up on their roof, much less install a new roof, some individuals are brave enough to attempt to perform a roof installation on their own. However, since it is critically important that re-roofing your home or business be done properly, it may be best to leave the job to a professional roofing contractor. Replacing a roof is one of the most dangerous and difficult home improvement projects, and even the slightest miscalculation can result in a terrible outcome.
There are several benefits of allowing an experienced roofing company to handle your roof installation, including:
