Professional repair work is usually the first solution to roofing problems. Not only is it more cost-effective, it can allow you to get the most of your roof’s life and performance, as well. But there are instances when a complete roof replacement is a more practical solution to repairs. Masters Roofing, the trusted residential roofing contractor in the area, shares when a replacement makes better sense than repairs.
- Your existing roof is already past its life expectancy. A standard asphalt shingle roof can provide up to 20 years of service–or longer with proper installation and maintenance. But it will fail eventually, with its shingles becoming cracked, brittle, and curled–a sure sign they have already lost their weather resistance. Old shingles may also appear “bald” because they have shed their protective granules–you may find an excess amount of these granules inside your gutters or around the downspouts.
- Your roof has massive leaks. An isolated roof leak doesn’t warrant a replacement–but leaks that encompass a large section of your home might. Are there water stains and streaks along your walls and ceiling? Is there mold and rot in the wood structure of your attic? Perhaps you can already see sunlight streaming into the space because of holes in the roof. To prevent further water damage to your home, consult Masters Roofing immediately for a comprehensive checkup of your system’s condition. We’ll recommend a new roof installation if it’s already too late for repairs.
Masters Roofing is certified by two of the largest roofing manufacturers in North America, GAF® and Owens Corning®. This means access to some of the highest quality asphalt shingle roofing systems available today. They are not just designed to deliver reliable and long-lasting weather performance, they are also customizable with your choice of color, texture, and thickness that allow them to match perfectly with your home’s architectural style and exterior palette.
- Your roof has sustained extensive storm damage. Roofing systems take some amount of everyday wear and tear, but their deterioration can be fast-tracked by a major weather event. Wind-blown debris can crash against your roof, a large tree in the backyard can fall on top of it, and high wind speeds can even blow away large patches of shingles from your system. If the storm damage proves too widespread, a roof replacement might be your only option.
