Does Your Home
Need Roof Replacement?
3 Warning Signs
How do you know it’s time for roof replacement in Jacksonville FL? There are many telltale signs that indicate when it’s time to get this job done by a roofing services professional. Here are three of them:
Shingles roofs account for nearly 80 percent of all roofs in this country. They last, on average, about 20 years before they start to curl, peel and fall off. Many other factors come into play here, too, such as whether you have one layer of shingles and how much ventilation you’re getting.
Got curled or buckling shingles? Chances are, you need a new roof, especially if the roof is approaching its useful life span. In addition, if you’ve had the same shingles placed back on, repaired and fixed so many times your roof looks like a patchwork quilt, you should invest in roof replacement. If your shingles are curled and buckled and it’s relatively new, you may have defective materials or inefficient ventilation in your roof. Either way, call in a professional.
Roof cement or tar flashing has its own life expectancy too, and can start showing signs of wear and tear just like shingles and other roofing material. You may need a water-tight fitting, such as metal flashing, that will withstand the test of time for your chimney and other roof elements.
