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 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 material 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. Baker Roofing & Construction Inc. will give you complete, honest, expert opinion and advise on your roof replacement project.
