OKC Roof Installation & Repair
Why Should Your Roof Be Replaced or Repaired?
You may be reluctant to replace your roof because it is a large expense that can be neglected, but how important is a roof replacement for your Oklahoma City home? If you don’t repair and replace your roof, then your Oklahoma City property can suffer significant damage. Roofs that have reached their limit are highly susceptible to becoming leaking, and can fail at any time, which could cause damage to the items beneath them.
Here Are 7 Things You Need To Watch For If Your Roof Needs Repair
Has it been awhile since you repaired or replaced your old roof? When a leak occurs in the ceiling of an Oklahoma City home, the homeowner usually realizes they need a new roof. Various roofing problems can cause this leak. How does a roof’s condition affect whether or not it needs repair or replacement?
Are you aware of the age of the roof? Roofs typically last between 20 and 25 years, according to most experts. You need to remove the old roof and install a single layer of shingles as well as make sure that the roof is properly ventilated. Usually, a roof should be replaced if it is installed over an older, lower layer and if it has been over 20 years.
Shingles Curling And Buckling
Another sign that you may need a new roof is curled or buckling shingles. When noticing that the shingles are curling and starting to lose their granules, you may notice that they have passed their life expectancy. The roof may also be defective.
It’s important to note that if your roof shingles are falling off or missing in this area, you need a new roof. Among your roof’s most critical areas are the valleys. Rain and snow flow through valleys and into gutters. When the valley is compromised, the roof may be susceptible to roof leaks.
This could be another sign that your roof is failing. Make sure that all of the tabs are intact on the shingle.
Obviously, we need to be concerned about this. A metal flashing system would be the best choice for a flashing that consists of roofing cement or asphalt, which will not deteriorate over time.
Shingle Granules In The Gutters
Make sure that your gutters are not loaded up with shingle granules. Toward the end of the roofs’ life cycle, they tend to lose more granules. It can also be a sign of worn granules if some parts of the roof are too dark or inconsistent in shade.
Daylight Through The Roof Boards
If you walk on the roof it feels spongy, meaning the decking might be weak from moisture. Check your attic for signs that daylight is coming through the roof boards. Also, check the insulation for moisture.
