Although your home insurance carrier may determine that your home needs a new roof after a major storm, there are other signs to indicate when it is time to replace a roof. While missing shingles may suggest repairs are necessary, look for these the signs mentioned below that might indicate your home needs the roof replaced.
If you walk across the roof and it feels spongy or has a slight bounce, that can mean the decking has deteriorated due to moisture. To confirm this assessment, go into the attic and check for daylight coming through the roof or moist insulation. If you find these signs, contact roofing companies to get an estimate for a roof replacement in Mandan, ND.
If you notice the shingles on the roof are curling or buckling, then you may need an entirely new roof. Check the shingles on the side of the roof that gets direct sunlight and if they are buckling or curling, it could mean that the shingles have outlived their life expectancy. The roof may also be defective, which would require an entire roof replacement.
Age of Roof
If you have an older home and it has been between 20 to 25 years since the roof was last replaced, then it could be time to replace it again. Also, if the roof was laid over another layer or several layers of shingles and it is over 20 years old, then a replacement may be necessary. If you think it is time for a new roof, contact us for an estimate.
