Signs that you need to replace your roof

By Stacy Mellete

Even the strongest and highest-quality roof will eventually need to be replaced. Its lifespan will depend on factors such as the material, thickness, and type of installation. Improper maintenance, poor insulation, or weather damage can further shorten the lifespan of your roof.

Whether your roof requires repair or roof replacement Brandon FL due to old age, poor maintenance, or strong winds and rains, a reputable contractor can help you determine the best solution for your needs.

The first step will be to assess the condition of your roof from both the inside and the outside of your home. You can check it yourself, or call us at 813-542-8462 for a free, no-obligation evaluation and quote.

Inspect your roof from the inside

The first thing you need to do to check the condition of your residential roof in Brandon Florida is head up to your attic.

With a flashlight, inspect it carefully and write down all the damage you spot. Look out for the following signs:

  • Sunlight coming through the boards or holes in your roof.
  • Dark stains and streaks caused by leaking water.
  • Sagging and wet or rotting areas.
  • Moss and algae growth.

Inspect your roof from the outside

Checking the exterior of your roof will help you identify roof problems at early stages.

Even if your attic is in perfect condition, your roof might be damaged on the outside; if the problems are left unattended, the damage will soon spread.

Checking your roof for damage is important, but remember that it is also dangerous, so if you don’t have the necessary safety gear, consider calling our professionals to do it for you. Here’s what we will look for:

  • Cracked, decayed, buckling, or missing shingles.
  • Pieces of shingles in the gutter.
  • Cracked or broken flashing around vents and chimneys.
  • Damaged roof valleys.

Another important factor you should always keep in mind is the age of your roof. Even if you don’t find significant problems, you should call a professional to figure out how much longer your roof can be useful. If your roof is too old, you may want to replace it before it starts leaking and damages your house from the inside.
