Signs Its Time to Replace Your Roof
In the same way that householders know that they need to replace their washing machine when it keeps failing, or that it’s time to rip up the carpet when it becomes stained or thin, so you should really know when a good time would be to replace your roof.
If you have any doubts about whether you need to look at the roofing on your Sunshine Coast home, then Stormguard Roofing is here to help you with some simple tips about your roof.
The roof is ageing
The first sign that your roof needs replacing is that it is getting old.
Most roofs have warranties on them which last about 20 years.
If you haven’t had a new roof in all the time you’ve been there, it’s a good idea to start thinking about replacement.
It doesn’t look good
Compare your roof with those over your neighbour’s home.
Does your roof look uncared for, in poor condition, or simply worn out?
Stormguard Roofing can help you to understand that you need to replace your roof when it starts to look old compared to everybody else’s.
The roof is stained or peeling
A leaking roof will quickly show in deterioration of the paintwork, or in watermarks on top of the shingles on your roof.
These not only indicate that the roof is getting a bit old, but that there might be a serious water leak inside your home.
The shingles are in a bad state
When you ask Stormguard Roofing to look at your roof, they report that the shingles are defective.
They might be broken, damaged, or even darker due to age.
They could also be stained with water marks, or wet.
They can be deteriorating, which causes them to shed small grains of sand everywhere.
All of these are signs that you need to replace your roof.
You have high energy bills
This is a sign that there is a problem with your roof.
Good roofs are there to act as insulators, preventing hot air from rising out into the atmosphere.
If it isn’t doing a good job, or you are doing is heating up the outside.
Time to get a replacement.
When to replace your roof
Even if there is no leaking, and no obvious signs of damage, it is time to replace the roofing on your Sunshine Coast home when there is one or more of the signs listed above.
