How to Know When It's Time for a Roof Replacement!
Deciding when it's time to replace your roof can be tricky! Sometimes obvious things happen like hail or wind damage but that's not always the case for when it's time to replace your roof! If you've never had to replace your roof before, you may be unsure when it's necessary. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few situations that might mean it's time to replace your roof!
#1 Your shingles are curled up or your shingle tabs are cupped.
These small details might be tough to see from the ground or street - that's why you call the Lake of the Ozarks roofing experts! Roof shingles have the tendency to curl up over time, but it can happen quicker because of heat and moisture build-up due to inadequate ventilation in your attic
#2 Your roof is at least 20 years old.
Experts say that typical roofs most commonly last between 20 and 25 years. There are many factors that go into this, such as the age of your home, the condition of your ventilation, and how many layers of shingles have been installed. Check your records to see if you or the previous homeowners have documented the last time the roof was replaced or repaired. Even though your home might be older, roof work may have been done recently. If you find that your roof is nearing the 20-year mark, it might be time to take a look at it and assess how to move forward.
#3 You have a leaky attic.
Above & Beyond Roofing's goal is to catch the issue before you have water problems, but sometimes looking for evidence is the best place to start. Once you climb up into your attic, if you notice light coming through the roof or stains and streaks, it's time to call to get it checked out. If light can get in, so can air, rain, bugs, snow, etc.
