Having a roof that is in poor condition can lead to many other issues in your home. From mold and leakage to insulation issues and weather resistance. Maintaining an uncompromised roof is just as important as caring for the interior of your house. Here are some of the common signs that may indicate a dire need for the replacement of your roof.
When your roof begins to cave under its weight, then it’s time for you to replace it. To know if your roof is sagging, check the roofline and look for sections that don’t follow the roof’s straight line. Sagging may happen due to different factors, including age or excessive wear from water buildup and damage.
When you have shingles that are either broken, missing, curled, or buckling, then it is time for you to consider replacing the roof. Some homeowners may simply replace the shingles. However, when a shingle is broken or missing, there is a strong chance that you will begin to see leaks in the ceiling, which means you could incur expenses twice. A professional can tell you whether or not damaged shingles are a sign of a larger problem.
High Energy Bills
This point may not seem like an obvious guess, but when you get heating or cooling bills that are higher than usual, your roof may be leaking hot or cold air. A roof that leaks cold air will require the owner to spend more on heating and air conditioning to maintain a warm house temperature. When you notice an increase in heating bills, you should check with a roofing specialists to see if your roof may be the culprit.
The appearance of mold growing in your attic is a sure sign that you need to replace your roof. Not only does mold pose a serious health hazard to you and your family, but it also often leads to rotting plywood. Mold on the plywood usually implies that there is poor ventilation to allow the warm moist air to escape. As such, it can happen with new roofs, too. On top of that, if the plywood rots completely, then you will incur the extra cost of replacing both the plywood support and the roof.
