Your home is one of the most treasured placed on earth to you. It is the place where you can go to rest, relax and rejuvenate from the cares and worries of the outside world. You expect it to keep you warm and dry, safe and sheltered from inclement weather and unpleasant experiences. Most of the time, your home performs these duties beautifully. A large part of keeping your home in top condition involves establishing a regular maintenance routine that is able to catch potential issues before they become major issues. Eventually, regardless of how well you maintain your home, you will need to replace certain elements of your home—usually the areas that take the most severe thrashings, such as your roof.
The roof of your home takes a beating every day. Think about it– on a daily basis, your roof is exposed to the very elements of weather that it shields and protects you from. It handles sunlight, rain, snow, hail, sleet or other weather situations. Most of the time, your roof takes on this responsibility well. However, if you notice that your roof is showing signs of extreme wear and tear, it may be time for roof replacement. Some of the signs that you need roof replacement include:
- Shingles that are curling
- Plant growth on the shingles (such as moss or algae)
- Cracked or missing shingles
- Dark or light patches on your shingles, due to granules that have worn away
- Your roof is approaching its 25th birthday
In general, you can easily distinguish when it is time for a roof replacement. However, there are times when that need may arise suddenly, as in the case of a severe storm that does immense damage to your roof. Regardless of the reason you are in need of a roof replacement, call on us at Slippery Slope Roofing to get the job done.
