How do you know when a roof needs replacement?
It can be obvious that a roof has failed if there’s multiple leaks or big holes, but some signals can be more subtle. If you keep getting leaks in different spots, other roof parts like soffits and fascia have damage, or there’s water damage on ceilings and walls, your roof probably needs full replacement.
Can I just repair my existing roof?
Often a few missing shingles or a little rotten fascia can be replaced on it’s own, but in many instances the damage is already too great. This is because water can flow through a damaged roof and cause deeper damage to wooden decking, attic supports, or interior walls. Over time, small repairs aren’t enough to reverse the damage and a full roof replacement becomes necessary.
How often should you replace your roof?
Though a properly installed roof can last for decades, it can be a good idea to replace your roof after 15 years or so to prevent damage that comes with an aging roof like recurring leaks or interior damage.
Which roofing materials are best?
Depending on the style of your building, and the style of it’s roof, different roofing materials are used as appropriate. For example, hip roofs with asphalt or architectural shingles are common on residential homes. Commercial buildings often have flat roofs covered with materials like EPDM or thermoplastic roofing. To pick the right roof type and roofing material, you need to consult with an experienced roofer like those at Diversified Exterior Solutions.
