It’s easy to know you might need a new roof if you have a leak, or if there was storm damage to your existing roof. But with these tips, there are some simple signs it’s time for a new roof on your Sarasota area home.
In the Sarasota, Venice, and Lakewood Ranch area of Florida, many of the homes were built at the same time, or in an HOA type of environment. So if there are other homes in your area with their roofs being replaced, chances are, it’s time for a new roof.
The age of your current roof is a dead giveaway as well. If the useful life has run out, it is probably time to think about a roof replacement. Depending on the type of material used, each roof has a different lifespan.
If you look up and notice bald areas, missing shingles, or shingles that are curled or buckling, these are signs of a roof that is damaged. These missing shingles can allow water to seep into the roof, and can ultimately damage the integrity of the roof. It is time to contact a roofing contractor as soon as possible.
A roof that is sagging definitely shows that the roof is damaged, and is in dire need of replacement.
Your roof protects you from the rain and the heat of the sun. If you begin to notice that your energy bills are increasing significantly, it could mean that the roof is not properly insulated any longer. This could be that the materials are breaking down and no longer protecting you.
