Roofs are constantly exposed to harsh sun rays, freezing rain, heavy winds, hail, piles of snow, and all of the elements of the seasons. So it's important to keep your roof maintained throughout the year because your roof is the only thing protecting your home from those elements. But when your roof is old or damaged beyond repair, you should act quickly and replace it before the rest of home becomes damaged.
Choosing to replace your roof this year means choosing to improve the look and functionality of your home. If the shingles on your roof are beginning to buckle and curl up, then that is a sign that your roof needs some attention and could mean that your roof is defective or damaged due to exposure to harsh sun rays or heavy storms.
As shingles begin to buckle, roof valleys are also at risk. These valleys are essential to your home and protect against leaks and drainage from the roof. Without these, you may find yourself with water in your attic.
Another sign you should look for in your attic could be daylight shining through. If you’re standing in your attic and can clearly see sun beginning to shine through then your roof is severely damaged.
Also, don’t forget that taking care of your gutters and your roof goes hand in hand. Remembering to clean out your gutters is important and can help you tell if your roof is starting to loose its luster. Finding roof debris in your gutters can help point you in the direction of needing a new roof.
Overall, the easiest warning sign that can indicate that you should be in the market for a new roof this year is the age. If your roof is anywhere from 15 to 20 years old, then the functionality is being compromised.
