Your roof is the most important protection for your home, but how do you know when it’s time to replace it, or if Cleveland roof repair is a viable option? Here are some of the most common signals that a roof is past its prime and can no longer provide adequate protection:
- Missing and torn shingles. Wind can devastate a roof, and when winds that are powerful enough to tear off shingles combine with hail, the damage often requires complete replacement. Should your roof suffer this kind of damage, it should be covered by your homeowner’s insurance at no cost to you.
- Worn shingles. Areas of missing granules on shingles which are 15 years or older (the average lifespan for shingles in Northern Ohio is 20 years) indicate it’s time to replace the roof.
- Buckling. Buckling in shingles can result from improper application of the roof underlayment, application over another shingle layer or poor attic ventilation.
- Curling. Shingle curling may result from improper installation, improper nailing, lack of attic ventilation or product defects.
- Ceiling spots. Stains on interior ceilings are frequently traced back to a roof leak. A small leak on a newer roof can typically be remedied, but multiple leaks may indicate a failing roof.
- Hail damage. Hail causes bruising and cracking of the shingle mat, and each hit becomes a potential location for water infiltration. When hail strikes, it’s essential that you call for a professional evaluation of your roof’s condition.
