Your roof can last for decades, but at some point, every roof will need to be replaced. Here’s how to tell it’s time for your Casselberry roof replacement.
Repairs can keep your roof going strong for many years. However, no roof lasts forever, and yours will need to be replaced at some point. At Advantage Roofing, we’ve been repairing and replacing roofs since the 1980s, so we know when repairs aren’t enough. We will never upsell you on a roof replacement when repairs will get the job done, but when it’s time for a new roof, we’ll make sure you get the best roof possible for your home.
Here are some factors to consider from our Casselberry roof replacement team when making a decision about whether or not to get a new roof.
Age Of Your Roof
It’s important to consider your roofing material when deciding how long your roof should last. The most common type of residential roof is made of asphalt shingles. This type of roofing material is cost-effective and will give your home a good level of protection.
A roof with asphalt shingles will need to be replaced every 15-20 years. Tile shingles can last much longer than asphalt which is why they come with a higher price tag.
In Florida, the humidity and frequency of tropical storms can affect the longevity of your roof. It’s best to have a Casselberry roof replacement professional look at your roof and help you decide how long until it will need to be replaced.
Even if your roof is brand new, a severe storm can cause so much damage that it needs to be replaced long before its expected expiration date. Look for these signs of storm damage that could mean that you need a complete re-roof.
Limbs on the ground
If there are limbs on the ground, they may have damaged your roof during their fall. High winds can cause major tree damage and those trees can cause major roof damage.
After a storm, you may see shingles on the ground. They may have come from your roof or your neighbor’s roof. To be sure, have our Casselberry roof replacement team over to take a look. And if you can see where shingles are missing from your roof, definitely let us know.
Leaks in your home
When your roof sustains damage, water can get into your attic and make its way to your ceiling. If you have leaking after a storm, it needs to be checked out right away.
Most home insurance companies have a formula to determine when it is most cost-effective for them to have you replace your roof. We can provide your insurance company with a report that shows how extensive the damage is.
Mold spores are carried onto your roof by the wind, and if you have any cracks in your roof, mold can settle in and start to grow. This is why it’s important, especially in our humid climate, to have a Casselberry roof replacement team inspect your roof periodically. We can look for cracks where mold can grow.
If your home does have mold, moss, or algae, remediation may be required. However, if the mold has gotten out of control, you could need a new roof. Not only is mold a health hazard, but it can also weaken the structural integrity of your roof, making it more vulnerable to damage.
