Reasons to Replace a Roof


 Leaky roofs lead to major structural issues! Once you see the leak inside the home, leaking has been occurring for some time. Most of the water will penetrate the roofing system, decking, insulation as well as well as the ceiling, this normally is a slow process, indicating a long time leak and is a certain condition for a new roof.

Wind Damage

The tricky part about wind damage is that the exposed spots on the roof can be difficult to detect. Shingles that have been exposed to high winds may have loosened the sediment and possibly even nails, will lead to leaks and cause extensive damage if not repaired promptly.

Exposed Nails

This is a very common problem that tends to cause most leaks. Nails can rust and create an opening for a small leak to form.

Granules Missing

Roofs loose granules through the course of their obvious exposure to the elements over time. Check the gutters and drains for granules. Granule loss of older roofs are indicative of roof replacement.


Shingle tiles may curl which is the first symptom of a possible much larger problem is going to arise.

Roof Cement

Mental flushing prevents leaks where shingle meets other surfaces like walls and chimneys. Proper flashing work will last for many roof systems and roof cement is used to secure and seal possible leaks.

Hail Damage

When large hailstones hits on asphalt roof, it can tear or puncture shingles. The damage may not be obvious at first so inspect your roof or have us inspect your roof soon thereafter the hail event.

Damaged Shingles

Broken shingles are both ugly and a leak waiting to happen. It is recommended to have these fixed as soon as possible to prevent future leaks.


Shingles are going to need to be replaced if cracks are visible.  

No chimney cricket

A wide chimney forms a dam on your roof. Debris and water builds up behind the chimney holding moisture which leads to rusted flashing, wood rot, mold, and leaks. Chimneys over 30”, by code require a cricket!

Damaged Plumbing vent bouts

Plumbing vent boots can be all plastic, metal and plastic or even all metal. Squirrels and rodents can chew and damage vent bouts allowing leaks.

Black Streaks

Algae called Gloeocapsa Magma The algae feed on limestone in the shingles. This algae will worsen over time and become more noticeable each year ultimately trapping moisture and causing premature shingle aging and granule loss.
