Roofs Don't Last Forever
While we all want our home to last forever, the reality is over time, you will need to replace some elements of your home. Your roof is no different. Unlike a bathroom remodel or landscaping, chances are you won’t be thinking about roof replacement until you start to notice problems. But, once you start to notice issues with your roof, you need to call the roofing experts at Everest Home Improvement right away. Your roof is not a project to put off for very long.
How To Tell When It’s Time To Replace A Roof
Roofs are designed to last for several years, but wear and tear over time can cause the need for replacement. Some signs that indicate it’s time to replace your roof include:
Most roofs have a lifespan of 20 to 25 years. If your roof is approaching this age, you may want to consider replacing it to avoid leaks and other potential issues in the future.
2. Damaged shingles:
Missing, cracked or curling shingles are signs that your roof is starting to wear out. You may also notice the granules from the shingles clogging up your gutters.
If you notice water stains on your ceiling or walls, it’s an indication that your roof is leaking. You may need to replace your roof if the leaks are severe or widespread.
4. Energy bills:
An aging roof can lead to higher energy bills as it becomes less effective at keeping the temperature in your home regulated.
What Is Replaced During A Roof Replacement Project
A roof replacement involves the removal of the old roofing material and the installation of new shingles or tiles. Here are the steps involved in replacing a roof:
A professional roofing contractor will inspect your roof and take measurements to determine the amount of material needed for the replacement.
The old shingles or tiles will be removed, and the roof deck will be inspected for any damage.
Any damaged sections of the roof deck will be repaired or replaced. This is important to ensure that the new roofing material has a sturdy foundation.
An underlayment is installed over the roof deck to provide a moisture barrier and extra protection.
The new roofing material is installed, starting at the bottom and working upwards. Flashing is installed around any protrusions on the roof, such as chimneys or vents.
Once the replacement is complete, a final inspection is conducted to ensure that the new roof meets the required quality standards.
