If your roof begins extensively displaying some of these warning signs, then it is time for a roof replacement. These signs indicate that your roof can longer protect your home from the weather. Contact Lyons Contracting for an expert roof evaluation. We’ll recommend the best course of action and the best kind of new roof for your home. Here are the warning signs:
Your Roof is Over 20 Years Old
Your roof’s age is one of the clearest indicators if it’s time to contact an expert in roofing in Arlington, VA, like us. If your roof is older than 20 years, it’s time to call us for a professional opinion. There comes a point in the roof’s service life when it is more cost-effective to get a replacement rather than focus on repairs. Constant repairs are a short-term solution that only works for so long. Since every roof is different, we need to inspect your roof to know for sure.
Your Roof is Missing Shingles
If there’s a large amount of missing shingles, it may be a sign that your roof is failing. Missing shingles also mean that your roof is at risk from moisture invasion. Water can easily damage your exposed underlayment and start leaking through your ceiling. This leads to staining on your interior ceiling and walls, along with mold and mildew growth. The water can also damage your roof’s structure. You can prevent this by calling us for an inspection.
Your Roof’s Shingles are Cracked
As an expert in asphalt shingle and metal roofing in Arlington, VA, we understand their material composition and their strengths and weaknesses. When it comes to asphalt shingles, once you see them blistering, cracking, or curling, it means they’ve reached the end of their service life. Your shingles can neither withstand long exposure to the sun nor protect you. It’s time to call us so we can assess the damage and schedule a roof replacement if necessary.
