Signs That You Need Walnut Creek Roof Repair or Replacement Services
Spring is here and the trees, bushes, and flowers are blooming. The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, and for some homeowners, their roof is leaking again like it did last year. If you are one of these unlucky people, it is time to make a calculated decision about whether it is time to replace your old roof. It is not the easiest decision to make, both economically and time-wise. You may have already contacted a local Walnut Creek roofer and their determination is that you need a new roof.
The reason for a full replacement versus a roof repair is because the damage has gotten worse and will only cost more money over time to keep fixing your old roof than to just replace it entirely. In fact, it could lead to much worse problems that will be very expensive to fix. So, you decide to contact another local roofing contractor to get a second opinion. However, they say the same thing.
A roof does not last forever, so if you own your home long enough, you are going to have to replace your roof at some point in time. Depending upon the initial roofing materials that were used, how well it has maintained throughout its life, and weather conditions are all factors for how long a roof will last. There are specific tell-tale signs that symbolize when a roof should be replaced. Here a few signs for Walnut Creek homeowners to consider.
- AGE - Most 3-tab asphalt shingle roofing systems will last about 15-20 years with proper maintenance and some luck from the weather. After this timeframe, there are frequent cases of roof leaks and failure.
- Damage or Missing Shingles - If a large portion of the roof has damage, then it may best to get a partial or full replacement from a reliable roofer, rather than just opting for a roof repair.
- Moisture in the Attic and Water Spots on the Ceiling - The condition of the plywood underneath the roofing materials is a precise indication of whether you have a rook leak or not. In the case of peeling or cracked paint, or moisture marks on the walls indicating water leaking in, then it's time for the roof to undergo major repairs.
- Severe Weather - If the wind has blown off some of your shingles, then the exposed areas of your roof are vulnerable to water damage. The major cause of accelerated roof deterioration is its exposure to the elements such as wind, rain, hail, and direct sunlight which we get a lot of here in California.
