How to Know if I Need a Roof Replacement for My Home?
Homeowners should periodically inspect the roofs of their homes for visible signs that a new roof is needed. These can include curled, cracked, or missing granules on traditional asphalt-shingled surfaces. Metal, tile, slate, and wood shake roofs have varying lifespans and indicators – all of which can be identified during a professional roof inspection. Of course, age can also be an indicator; If your Roof has reached its maximum lifespan, it may need replacing soon to prevent any major damage due to storms or other weather events. Finding qualified technicians who understand different residential materials and installation techniques requires expertise far beyond basic replacements – this includes knowledge of pitch measurements, underlying structures related to slope transitions, plus ventilation systems, to name a few key areas!
One aspect of roof replacement that sometimes is not understood is the decision to remove shingles or re-roof over the existing ones. This is a judgment that should be made by a roofing specialist in discussion with the homeowner.

Your roof is an investment in your home, and all decisions should be well-advised.
