Like many things around your home, your roof will deteriorate over time. If your house has been around for several years now, that could happen sooner rather than later. Considering that it protects you and your family from the elements, it’s important for you to replace your roofing as soon as possible. In this article, A&A Services looks at the signs that your roofing absolutely has to go.
Sign #1: Ungraceful aging
Even when there aren’t any visible signs of damage on your Salem roofing, the passage of time can still have a strong effect on its stability and structure. Components can wear out or simply go missing, support structures under the roofing might get damaged or unseen leaks might form— all hidden dangers that warrant looking into and seeking replacement. Having CertainTeed shingles installed as a fresh start is a great move as they are waterproof and highly durable.
Sign #2: Missing material
Whether it’s shingles, shakes, or strips of material, missing one or several of these components is never good. Aside from lowering your home’s curb appeal, missing components can leave the support structure underneath vulnerable to water. This can eventually lead to rot or even leaks springing up all over your home. True, you can replace one or more of the missing materials, but the effect on your home’s exterior may not be for the best. With CertainTeed shingles, you can replace one or several components when they get damaged without having to worry about aesthetics.
Sign #3: Light through the roof boards
In the most extreme cases, the damage is so extensive that you will definitely need to call a professional roofer in Salem. If your roofing has many large holes or breaks where light can stream through, then you’ll have just as many entry points for water and other harmful elements to enter your home. This level of damage necessitates not just replacements, but structural reinforcement to be sure. With CertainTeed’s Premium shingles, you can expect your roof to weather any and all problems that can afflict it for a longer time. And since they come in a wide range of customizable designs, you can expect your roof to beautify your home every bit as much as protect it.
