Whether you like it or not, as a homeowner you’re aware that years of exposure to the elements can wear out even the most well-built roof made with very durable materials. Significant exposure to sunlight, rain, snow, and wind can lead to the gradual deterioration of your roof, leading to the curling, peeling, and eventual permanent damage to the roof’s shingles. If not addressed immediately, roof damage can eventually lead to problems to the rest of your home.
As accumulated damage can go unnoticed in the beginning, many homeowners often only realize how battered their roofs are when it is already too late to repair. That’s why it is recommended that homeowners try to have their roof evaluated annually, and have professional Toronto roofers like us at Walker Contracting to conduct an expert roof inspection every 3 to 5 years. Not only will it prolong your roof’s service life, it will also save you from having to spend more than you should on repairing damages to your home caused by a deteriorating roof.
Signs You May Need a New Roof
There are several signs that will indicate if your roof has too much damage and if it warrants an inspection from professional roofers in Toronto. Depending on the extent of the damage, you might be required to have your roof replaced.
- Ice dams have formed along the edge of the roof
- The shingles are missing, cracked, worn or curled
- If you have asphalt shingles, you notice that there are missing granules
- Wood shingles appear to be split
- There is algae growth on your roof
- Parts of the roof deck are sagging
- There are signs of water damage or leaking on your ceilings or exterior home walls
- Staining is obvious at the rafters or attic space
- Outside light is showing through the roof
