Expert Commercial & Residential Roof Replacement
Determining whether to repair or replace your roof is a major decision. Often, it boils down to the roof’s age and the degree of damage that needs repairing. A roofer can easily replace a few missing shingles, for example. However, if large swaths of material are missing or compromised, roof replacement might be more cost-effective than repairs, especially if the roof is already past its prime.
The GAF Master Elite® Certified roofers at Freetail Roofing can help you determine the best course of action to address whatever roofing challenges you are facing. We guarantee friendly service and outstanding results.
Signs You Need Roof Replacement
Missing or Damaged Shingles
As noted above, a few missing or damaged shingles are replaceable. However, if many are cracked, buckled, curled or missing, it may be better to invest in a new roof. It is also important to note that even if only a few shingles have visible damage, the rest may have damage in less conspicuous ways. Over time, shingle materials can deteriorate, making them weak and susceptible to lifting. It is better to proactively replace them, instead of waiting until they blow away in a storm.
All roofs have finite lifespans and begin to deteriorate with time. Most asphalt shingle roofs last for about 20 years, while metal roofs and cedar shake can last for 50 years or more. It is important to have a professional roof inspection every year to assess its condition and longevity. Many age-related problems are difficult to detect without a trained eye.
One of the primary responsibilities of a roof is to keep moisture out of your house. If you notice leaks or water stains on the ceiling or walls, call our professionals for a roof inspection and leak detection. Major leaks that affect a large area or that extend through multiple roof layers can do substantial damage and often indicate that a roof replacement is the better choice.
