Most homeowners do not really think a lot about the roofs on their homes and offices until things begin to literally fall apart. When the roofing of a building is neglected for so long, the time will come when replacement will be needed. Even for folks that have their roofs regularly inspected, roof replacement will eventually be required because roofs run their course. When the lifespan of a roof is over, no amount of repair can fix it. At Richardson Roof & Repair, we offer quality roof replacement service to homeowners and businesses that need our services. Our roof technicians are well trained and are experts in the best reconstruction and design techniques that will get you the best roof replacement results. Give us a call today to find out more. If you do not know when to call us, here are some signs that will indicate that you may need a new roof
Your Roof is Old
The average asphalt roof lasts between 12 to 15 years. Tile roofs live a lot longer. When your roof’s age begins to hit some certain numbers, you should probably start saving up for a new roof. This should be treated with more urgency by folks who have had roof repairs on their old roof. This is because all these repairs may be hiding some structural roofing issues behind the shingle surface. To find out more about this, give us a call today.
The Sight of Curling Or Missing Shingles
The exposure of your roof to elements like sun rain and snow will cause the components of the roof to wear down over time. One of the signs of this wear and tear is broken or missing shingles. When you begin to find shingles in your gutter (where they are not supposed to be), it means that your roof is beginning to slowly decay and rot away. With every missing, broken or curling shingle, your home becomes more and more vulnerable to the elements. Give us a call to find out more.
Having Unwanted Animal Visitors in Your Home
Tiny animals like squirrels will not intrude your home using the back door. So when the noise from the scampering of squirrels in your ceiling keeps you up at night, it may mean that you need a new roof. Animals like raccoons, birds and bats will always find a home in a damaged roof and can even deteriorate its condition. This is why you should give us a call when you begin to suspect that you may have a mini-zoo on top of you.
The presence of mysterious water stains on your ceilings and your walls may be an indication that you have a leak in your roof. If you continue to hear a mysterious dripping sound coming from the ceiling, it is almost very certain that your roof is in very bad condition. They need to be replaced. If you are not so certain about this, give us a call so we can come over to inspect it.
