Now that we are well into 2013, have you been thinking about replacing your roof or repairing it? Do you know if your roof is in good shape or can you tell if it needs work or even complete replacement? If your roof is closing in on 15 to 20 years and showing signs of wear or disrepair, it may be time to take a closer look and see what options are available to you. Maintaining a safe, sturdy roof over your head protects the things you care about including your property, your belongings and your loved ones. Your roof is one of the biggest investments you make as a homeowner but it’s often overlooked or put off due to expense.
A properly installed and maintained roof can last a very long time but there are many factors at work with your roof and any one of them can affect its’ lifespan — from the climate to installation to the materials used and many more.
A professional roofing contractor can evaluate your roof’s current state and help you determine if it needs to be replaced or repaired. Err on the side of caution; if you have any doubt about the integrity of the roof over your head, have it inspected by a professional. Taking care of roofing problems and addressing any issues you find now can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Remember, your roof can talk… you just need to listen to it.
