Our homes are safe spaces. They provide us with safety, privacy, warmth and comfort. While our home will shield us from natural and man-made nuisance, this protection comes at a cost – damage, wear and tear and decay of the roof.
The roof of the house takes a beating and it is recommended that you reroof your house when it gets old or shows signs of wear and tear. Hire the right roofing contractors when considering roof repair and replacement solutions to ensure a long life for your roof.
Most people we talk to are not sure if their roof needs repairs or replacing. So in this roofing blog, we tell you when you should consider replacing your roof.
1. Is your roof showing signs of cracking?
If you see cracks in patches or the entirety of your roof, it is a sign that you need a new roof. Cracks make the roof weak and can also allow water to seep inside your house or the rest of your roof. If the cracks are merely in the sealant, roof coating or a few shingles, you can consider replacing them instead of going for re-roofing.
2. Is your roof showing signs of leakage?
Leakage noticed in the roof or along the walls can be a sign of a heavily damaged roof. Leakage suggests your roof requires immediate attention and depending on the damage, will have to be repaired or replaced. Experts at Hynes Roofing and Siding will be able to assess the extent of damage and recommend a customised solution for your roofing problem.
3. Is your roof showing signs of weather damage?
While our roof protects us from harsh weather, it takes a beating in the process. Harsh weather conditions like heavy snowfall, hailstorms, hurricanes, rainfall etc. can cause the roof to disintegrate. If you notice signs of weather damage on your roof, you should get an expert to look at your roof before the next calamity comes along.
4. Are you renovating your house?
House renovation is an excellent opportunity to make roofing repairs or upgrades. If you are planning to renovate your house, you should fix any underlying roof issues first to avoid damage to the rest of the house. If the shingles on your roof are damaged due to age, this is a chance to replace them.
You can also waterproof your roof by opting for rubber roof coating or protect it from sunlight by using a silver roof coating. While renovating, you can also protect your roof by adding a metal roof chimney flashing to avoid water seepage into the house.
The fact of the matter is that all roofs will eventually wear out. If you are looking to repair or replace your roof, you can get in touch with our team of expert roofers.
