8 Signs That You Need A New Roof ASAP!



Have you worried about those shingles falling off your roof? Maybe there’s some suspicious stains on your ceiling? Or maybe you just dread the thought of another rainstorm rumbling above your home?

It’s okay to not know whether your roof needs some repairs or maybe a replacement. That’s why in this article we’re going to give you 8 signs that you need a new roof, and may need to hire a georgia roofing company like ours, Advanced Construction Professionals.

Let’s get started!


The Age Of Your Roof

When was your roof installed? Did you learn from the previous homeowner when it was replaced or last repaired?

Again, it’s okay if you don’t know these things as we offer a free roofing estimate to whoever wants one! Just click the button below to ask for more info…..

The quality of your roof will depend greatly on what the previous team did in terms of the types of shingles, the felt used to prevent moisture, and then how they were nailed in amongst other things. Plus, you may have a different type of roof, or you don’t know what the previous crew did on your roof.

Generally though, a roof will last you around 25 years and any roof younger than that may not be replaced and only repaired.



The Condition Of Your Shingles

The next question you’ll want to ask yourself is “Have any shingles come undone from my roof?”

Do they often come off during a storm? Have some of the shingles started to crack or curl up? Are any “tabs” missing from your roof?

Again, we don’t expect you to know what kind of shingles are on your roof or whether they were installed right. This is why we offer the free roofing estimate, but these are few sure signs of damaged or improperly installed shingles.

Damage To Your “Roof Valley”

This will be one of the most obvious signs of damage as a roof valley helps guide snow or rain builds up to your gutters. Any lack of water flow to your gutters from your roof valleys could be due to aging shingles, improperly installed materials, or storm damage.

A roof valley, in case you don’t know, is the parts of the roof that meet at various angles depending on the construction of your home. Maybe now you understand why damage to this area must be remedied as soon as possible!

Maybe You Have This Stuff In Your Gutters?

The stuff we’re referring to is shingle granules, which look like big grains of sand. When they start coming off your roof and out of your gutters, this is a sign that your roof has aged significantly and the materials are wearing down.

Go To Your Attic & Look For This Sign

Check your insulation and see if there’s any moisture buildups or possibly mold. Is there any light breaking through into your attic? Yet again, this is a sign that there is some damage to your roof that should be looked at. Light cracks can happen because of one of the previous problems we’ve talked about or simply because of a lack of maintenance too.

Look For These Features In Your Ceiling

Some of the most obvious signs of roof damage can be seen from inside of your home upon a closer look at your ceiling. Leaks during a storm are one, but also any stains or mold on your ceiling can be another. Any wet spots you find may be because your roofing materials have deteriorated, or other reasons that we can spot upon closer inspection.

What’s Happening During A Rainstorm

If you’ve been reading through this article so far, you’ve probably become aware of the common signs of roof damage that are agitated by a rainstorm. This includes leaks into parts of your home, wet spots on the ceiling, shingles falling of your roof, and the appearance of shingle granules in your gutters. Whenever a bad weather report makes you concerned about your roof, it’s a sure sign you should call us here at Advanced Construction Professionals!

When Was Your Last Inspection

Your roof is an important part of your home’s construction and by now you probably agree that it must be maintained regularly. More than likely you have your carpets cleaned regularly, your A/C tuned up yearly, and your deck or driveway pressure washed from time to time. Your roof requires the same care and it may need some repairs or replacements……

The best way to find out is to request a free roofing estimate! We’ll give you a detailed list of items we recommend repairing or replacing on your home, explain the current problems you’re having with your roof, and never use high-pressure sales tactics to get your business. Our company believes in treating our customers with respect and doing a good job the first time.
