Having a healthy and solid roof over your head is very important for the safety and the comfort of your household. Unfortunately, roofs don’t live forever, so if you notice the following signs and symptoms, you should prepare for roof replacement:
- Curling shingles – if you find shingles that have turned up edges or the middle of which have detached from the layer underneath, you will probably need a new roof in about a year or so.
- Large areas where the shingle granules are missing – another sign of serious damage and a symptom that tells you might need a new roof.
- The integrity of the roof has been compromised – go up to the attic on a sunny day and check for beams of light coming from outside – if you see any, it is a sign that your roof is no longer intact.
- Damaged wooden components – if the beams or the other wooden elements that are holding up your roof show signs of damage, such as bending, rot or mold, you may be looking at a roof that needs to be replaced.
The above signs are symptoms of severe deterioration, but you should not despair. Call CLC Roofing Inc. Fort Worth, professional roofers to inspect the roof structure and the roofing cover – chances are that at least a part of the roof can be salvaged with proper repair.
