Signs You Need A Roof Replacement
Your roof speaks to you; you just need to familiarize yourself with its language. We can help you there; here are the ten signs to look for that signal it may be time to replace or repair your roof:
1. Age: 20 Years+
Many factors play into the lifespan of a roofing system: materials used, experience level of the installation crew, the type of decking used, and the impact of seasonal storms such as hurricanes, hail, tornadoes, etc. As a rule of thumb, any roof that reaches a life of 20 years or more should be thoroughly inspected for any current or potential issues that may cause serious damage to the interior of your home.
2. Missing Shingles**
This can be a sign of storm damage or your Roofing System reaching the end of its lifespan. A missing shingle turns into an opportunity for water to penetrate the roof and cause damage. If you see any missing shingles, you should call a professional asap to ensure the exposed area is repaired before costly damage occurs.
3. Granules in your Gutters
When shingles are damaged or too old, they will begin losing their granules. These will end up in your gutters or in your driveway as a result. This is a major sign of a Roofing System losing its integrity and should be followed-up by a thorough roof inspection.
4. Ceiling Damage / Water Stains**
This is the easiest way to spot a roof leak. Unfortunately, it also means that damage has been done to your home. Homeowners should take immediate action when a brown spot in their ceiling appears. This can be a sign of a minor roof leak that's a quick-fix, the need for a substantial repair, or a full replacement. Homeowners should call a professional roofer to inspect the roofing system. Some of these leaks are caused by other issues such as an a/c or plumbing leak. In this case, whoever you call out should be able to tell you what kind of contractor you're going to need.
5. Mildew or Mold in Your Attic**
This can be the result of improper ventilation in your roof. It is a health risk to you and your family. If you notice the signs, you should call in for a thorough roof inspection asap.
6. Popped Up Shingles / Exposed Nail Heads**
Popped up shingles allow for water penetration in your Roofing System. In some instances, these issues can be resolved with an inexpensive repair. It can also be the result of inferior roof decking; shiplap. The best way to resolve this issue would be replacing the entire Roofing System and replacing the decking with CDX plywood.
7. Missing / Unsealed Flashing**
If you have a chimney, flashing is used to protect the base from water penetration into your Roofing System. When the seal around this area is broken, there is opportunity for damage to occur. We recommend an immediate repair to prevent damage.
8. Inconsistent Appearance
If you notice your roof starting to have less texture in some areas or a bumpy look across the roof, you should have the roof inspected. From the ground, it can be hard to spot the real issues behind this new look. You may have cracked, curled, or broken shingles that need to be replaced.
9. Sagging Roof
This can be a sign of a few things: improper installation, weak supports, or too many layers of shingles for the structure to support. No matter the cause, a sagging roof should be replaced.
10. Dark Spots on Your Roof
This could be a sign of algae growing on your Roof System. It should be removed asap. If it doesn't look right, you should always have a professional roofer check it out.
**Some of these can be signs of a much-needed replacement OR repair. The sooner you take action, the better it is for your home and your wallet!
It is common to have questions about your home and its repair and upkeep. We want you to be as informed as possible, so we've provided the answers to our most commonly asked questions.

It's always best to let a roofing professional inspect your roof when there is an issue to decide if the problem needs repairs or a full replacement. Depending on the kind of issue or damage your roof is facing, a repair may or not be enough.
Our professionals will inspect your roof and weigh all of the factors - how long would a repair last? Are there other areas that will also need repairs soon? How old is your roof? How long do you plan on being in the home? - before determining if a repair or a replacement is best for your roof's integrity and your wallet. As your roofing contractor, we have your best interests at heart.
Additions can add value to your home and also edge it closer to being your dream home. However, there are plenty of factors to consider when it comes to potential additions to your property. The first and possibly most important factor is potential zoning restrictions - it's important to make sure that you are actually able to make additions to your home before beginning the process.
It is also important to consider the cost and your budget when deciding to make additions. You should decide on what the limit of what you want to spend is before looking into contractors and services.
There are several reasons why HardiPlank is considered better than traditional vinyl siding. HardiPlank is thicker, more fire-resistant, provides a deeper texture, and does not warp or melt like vinyl siding does. While it is sometimes a bit more expensive than vinyl siding, you'll save yourself money down the road due to needing less repairs.
