How to know when to get a roof replacement

Roofs are fundamental structures in buildings, whether they be residential or commercial. Without any sort of roofing, a house isn’t really a house, and a commercial building wouldn’t be very practical. Having a roof that is durable, reliable, and can withstand what Mother Nature throws at it (we live in Florida, after all) is essential, no matter the weather. A good roof will last you for years and years, depending on the material that is used. But we can’t be naive to think that roofing is immune to damage or breaking. And aside from that, we have to keep in mind that a roof can come to the end of its life. That’s why it’s essential to do routine maintenance on it to ensure everything is doing its job so it can last long.

However, there are scenarios when roof replacement is necessary. Sometimes roofs need to be replaced simply because they are old, and not because they necessarily failed or were damaged. Perhaps you moved into a house that was built 20+ years ago and the roof needed to be repaired by the time you moved in, or perhaps you’ve lived in your house for as long as you can remember and the time has come to replace it. Either way, when you’ve found yourself in this situation, there is simply one thing to do: call J. Adams Roofing.

Depending on what type of roof you have, these are some signs that could indicate the need for a roof replacement:

  • Roof is very old or past warranty
  • Missing or broken shingles
  • Bare, curling, or buckling shingles
  • Numerous broken tiles
  • Damaged flashing
  • Cracks allow water or daylight through

While roof replacement is necessary at certain times, you might be wondering what you need to look for. What are the signs that demonstrate you need to replace that roof? If you’re on the fence about whether you should get your roof replaced, ask yourself these questions, and then call J. Adams Roofing.

  • Is the current roofing 20 years or older? If so, then it’s time to replace it. First of all, the materials that were used to manufacture your current roof are nearing the end of their life. Secondly, the roofing materials used these days and the components that make up a good roof are designed and manufactured to be more durable. Since we live in Florida and the weather is warm and moist and hurricanes are inevitable, it’s best practice to put a sturdy roof up, no matter the age, but especially so if your house is over 20 years.
  • Are the singles cracked, curled, or cupped? If you answered yes, then it’s time for a roof replacement. Brittle and cracked shingles are a sign that your roof has lived its life and you’re in need of a new one.
  • Are the neighbors getting investing in a new roof? This is a good thing to watch out for. Chances are the house you are living in was built around the same time as your neighbors. If you notice that they are considering roof maintenance and are speaking with roof replacement contractors, take it as a sign that you should be too.
