Let’s consider some important signs to look for that can help you decide whether it’s time for a roof restoration.
Check Your Roof from the Inside
Before climbing up the ladder, check the condition of your roof from the inside. Indications of roof damage include trails of leaking water or dark stains caused due to water seepage.
Light rays coming through the roof indicate cracks and damages. Even the presence of squirrels, rodents or birds’ nests in your attic can indicate a damaged roof.
Check Your Roof from the Outside
Even if there are no signs of damage from the inside, always double check the condition of your roof by inspecting it from outside. Take a good look at your roof from the ground before climbing up. Inspect all around both from close quarters and at a distance.
Once you are on the roof, check for any loose or worn out materials around pipes, vents or the area where the roof has been breached and then sealed.
Check the gutters and valleys for signs of corrosion or growth of algae, fungus or moss. These organisms take deep roots and can rot your roof from within. Clogged gutters are often the culprit. When the rainwater does flow smoothly, your gutter is prone to moisture and damp.
Check thoroughly for loose roof tiles, damaged ridge capping, broken shingles, the flashing and so on.
The presence of shingle granules in the gutters or worn and curled shingles also indicates that it’s time for a roof restoration. And of course, do check all the downpipes thoroughly for any sign of damage or corrosion.
Check for Signs of Sagging
While checking the roof both from outside and inside, do look for signs of sagging. Any area of the roof that is sagging indicates a serious damage either from within or from outside. If you spot the slightest sign of sagging, contact us immediately. It is important to rectify the issue before the condition exacerbates. Take the right step at the right time to avoid further damage to your roof and avoid costly replacement.
Consider the Age of Your Roof
As a general rule, asphalt shingle roofs have a lifespan of 20-25 years. A metal roof lasts over 50 years and as do roofs made of terracotta tile or slate. Roofs made of fiber cement shingles last for around 25 years while wood shake roofs have a lifespan of 30 years.
This is generalised information that should give you a rough idea. It is best to restore your entire roof once it reaches the half-life period.
However, do remember that climatic variations, inclement weather or severe storms can affect the longevity of your roof.
Check the Flashing
Flashing is the material that is used to seal joints on the roof, such as the point where the chimney comes out through the roof. Most homes use flashings made of tar or cement.
Flashing keeps moisture from seeping in through the gaps.
Over time, the flashing may wear out or experience cracks. This can put your entire roof at a risk of moisture damage.
If you see any signs of damage on the flashing, we can replace the entire flashing with those made of metal. Metal flashings are longer-lasting and less prone to the effects of moisture.
Check your roofline thoroughly. If you notice any blisters forming in the paint job or peeling paint, it can indicate early signs of damage that are festering within your roof. Roof coatings act as a protective layer that protects the roof from exposure to harsh sunlight, rain and the elements.
Further, a roof with the paint peeling off looks shabby. With our specialised equipment, we can peel off the entire coat of paint without damaging your roof and give it a new coat that is guaranteed to last for years.
