Some homeowners need a new roof on their home, but they put it off for a long time because of the high cost and the overall inconvenience. However, many people do not realize that there are some circumstances when a roof should be replaced right away. Faulty or damaged roofing can be dangerous to everyone living in the house, and it can also continue to cause damage. If you notice any of the following, you should replace your roof as soon as possible.
Shingle Damage – If your shingles are deteriorating and curling up that is a good indicator that your roof needs to be replaced. The reason roofing shingles curl up is that they have lost their protective UV coating. Also if your shingles lose an excessive amount of granules, that is another strong indicator that the shingles need to be replaced before any more damage to your home.
Dips In Your Roof – Fortunately, you can see dips in your roof if you observe it from a far enough distance. It’s not too complicated, just look for areas that are sinking below others. Generally speaking, these dips mean one of two things: there is water swell in the foundation, or there is rotting. Both would be reason enough to replace the existing roofing system. If you think you see a dip, it’s a good idea to contact a local roofing New Orleans professional contractor.
Leaking – Roofs that have leaks can often be repaired. However, if the leaks continue to grow larger or if there are more of them sprouting up, this usually means that your best option is a roof replacement. One thing that is important to remember is that not all leaks are easy to spot like when there is water dripping down to your floor. One of the more common symptoms of a leak is discoloration in your ceiling, especially if you see brownish colors.
