When it comes to our roofing systems, we have a lot of questions on our mind. This is because we want to make sure that our roofs will be able to protect us for a long period of time. As an experienced roofing contractor, Masters Roofing provides all the answers to typical questions about our roofs.
Question: How would you know if your roof needs to be replaced?
Answer: Clear manifestations include shingles that are cracked or missing, with curled edges or lifting up. In addition, the biggest element that we should consider is age. If your roof is over 20 years old, then there’s a high possibility that replacement is needed. However, the problem is not only relative to the roof’s age. That is why it is recommended to have a roof inspection at least once a year.
Question: Do I need the help of a professional when it comes to installing a roof?
Answer: There are safety risks that come with installing a roof on your own. Roofing installation may seem pretty easy to look at, but one step you miss, then everything else can have a negative impact. For example, when you nail the aluminum roof improperly, this may eventually cause leaking. If we’re talking about a tool shed, amateurs may do the job. However, if it’s a residential or commercial property, then it’s better to leave it to the experts.
Question: How can I get rid of moss on my roof?
Answer: Moss produces moisture that leads to your roof having a short life. Before proceeding in removing your moss, check first the condition of your roof by using a pair of binoculars. If you notice surface granules with worn off or shingles with cracks, then it might be better to just replace your roof. On the other hand, if you believe that your roof is still in good shape, you may use a bleach mixture to kill the moss. This mixture is 50% water and 50% bleach. Make sure that you stay off the roof and use a ladder while spraying. Then, wait for 15 minutes before rinsing the roof. Moss will dry up after a week or two.
