Is It Time to Install a New Roof? CALL Harold 562-303-5455
Many households in Long Beach are not as keen about installing new roofs until the existing ones start leaking. This can be expensive because by the time you notice there is a leakage; chances are high that structural damage has already occurred. To help you decide on the timing of re-roofing, below are some tips.
The Age of the Existing Roof
If the existing roof is asphalt shingle and was installed properly with quality materials, it should last you between 20 and 25 years depending on the shingle layers. There are cases where you lose track as to when the roof was last replaced, if this happens to you, just consider a roof inspection.
The Appearance of the Roof
If the shingle lines on your roof are still straight, you are safe. However, if you start seeing sags, it could be an indication that rotting is taking place on the sheathing underneath. Observe the valleys properly because the form an important channel for rain and snow flow to your gutters.
Asphalt Granules in Gutters
Do you see lots of asphalt granules whenever you clean your gutters? If you do, this could be a sign your asphalt shingles are gradually breaking down.
Other signs to look for in an aging roof include cracked or curled shingles, chimney flashing consisting of tar or roof cement, and moisture or leaks in the attic.
The moment you see these warning signs, get in touch with us and we shall assign you a qualified roof inspector to assess your roofing structure professionally.
Overlay and Tear Off Roofing Experts
When you contact us for roof installation, one of the questions we shall ask you is whether you want the old roof to be stripped down or simply cover it with a new layer of shingles. There is a considerable difference in pricing and if you opt for re-roofing you can save up to 25% or even more.
