How to Know if I Need a Roof Replacement for My Home?

There are some visible indicators that a home needs a new roof. If a home has a shingled roof, there may be noticeable damage to the shingles, like curling, missing granules, or cracks. Age is also a strong indicator, and if a roof is near 20 years old or older it may be in need of replacing. Roofs covered in other materials such as metal, wood shingles or tile have different life spans, but should all be inspected from time to time to be sure the structure is still in solid condition, especially after severe storms or any damaging events.

Baker Roofing technicians are trained and skilled in all types of residential roofing materials, replacements, and installations. But, the materials are not the only area of expertise that is required in roof replacement. Knowledge of roof pitch, underlayment, roofing valleys, and water runoff, venting, roofing structures, and weight issues are also very important when replacing a roof. When assessing your home’s roof, we take all things into consideration for your replacement roof.

One aspect of roof replacement that sometimes is not understood is the decision to remove shingles or re-roof over the existing. This is a judgment that should be made by a roofing specialist in discussion with the homeowner. Baker Roofing will assess your current roof structure, the weight factors, condition of the existing roofing materials, material guidelines and local laws. Your roof is an investment in your home and all decisions should be well advised.

FAQ

Roof Replacement FAQ

An impact-resistant shingle is a thicker, heavier shingle designed to hold up to hailstone impacts. It is meant to minimize damages caused by severe weather, providing your home with better protection.

It is also a type of Class IV roofing material that will qualify for a discount on your homeowner’s insurance premiums.

A Class IV roof is one of many roofing materials that have been designated by Underwriters Laboratories, under UL2218, as an impact-resistant material. The roofing materials will qualify for discounts on homeowner’s insurance premiums.

Be aware that some discounts will come with clauses or waivers that prohibit replacement for cosmetic damage.  For example, a metal roof with hail damage will likely not be replaced if it has not been penetrated.

Ice and water shield is a self-adhered waterproof membrane. It was developed to fight ice damming and wind-driven rain.   Therefore, it is commonly used up north on the eaves of the roof to protect damages from ice build-up.  Baker Roofing & Construction uses ice & water shield on every roof replacement with valleys, chimneys or skylights.  The use of ice & water shield in leak-prone areas of the roof increase protection from water damages in the most severe weather.

Without a doubt, synthetic underlayment is far superior to roofing felt paper.  Roofing felt will begin to breakdown and get brittle over the years.  In high winds, shingles can be blown off the roof in patches, and often the roofing felt paper goes with it, leaving the exposed decking vulnerable to roof leaks.  However, synthetic will not become brittle enough to tear off with the shingles better protecting your home from roof leaks.

Properly installed synthetic underlayment can last for 25 years or more. It far outlasts the traditionally used felt paper.

Synthetic underlayment is a woven material that is water-resistant. It is used in place of outdated roofing felt paper. It provides a durable base protection layer for your roof replacement.

There are many factors at play when determining how long a roof will last, like roof material and geographical location. For example, a 30-year roof will rarely last 30 years, especially in Texas. Texas has a high potential for severe weather that can take years of the life of your roof. Additionally, the harsh Texas sun can breakdown asphalt shingles at a faster rate than up north.
