Homeowners spend a lot of money maintaining their homes and properties, and roof replacements are unfortunately not the exceptions to this rule. Some homeowners avoid replacing their roofs because of the cost, but they might end up paying even more in the long run because of leaks and other issues. If you’re just not sure if your roof needs to be replaced, check out these five reasons to invest in a new roof from Schroeder Roofing:
1. Roof Age
The typical roof should be replaced after about twenty years. If you’ve lived in your Loveland or Fort Collins home for more than twenty years, your roof should most likely be replaced.
2. Shingle Condition
Shingles that are bald, cracked, torn, curling, buckling, or missing all indicate an old, worn out roof. If you don’t want to climb all the way up to your roof to check your shingles, you can check them for curling on the ground level by looking at them in direct sunlight.
3. Blistering Paint
If you have exterior or interior paint that is blistering or peeling, that is likely an indication of trapped moisture. This could mean that your home has poor attic ventilation, but it could also indicate a leak issue. Get a free estimate from Schroeder Roofing to find out what’s causing your moisture problems.
4. Neighbor’s Roof
Generally, homes in neighborhoods were built around the same time. If you’ve noticed a few of your neighbors replacing their roofs, it may be time to have yours replaced as well.
