Nothing is a worse nightmare for a homeowner than having a roof that is leaky, missing shingles, or collapsing. Even if you think the problem is minor, the smallest of leaks can cause mold and mildew and even pest infestation. Birds nesting on your roof can cause eventual damage and woodpeckers love to feast on wood roofs.
Reasons to Replace Your Roof
There are a few events that might occur that will make roof replacement a very good idea.
Storm damage can blow off shingles and create a large open space that may require reroofing or replacement, depending on the extent of the damage. Storms can cause trees and branches to fall on homes and this can cause structural damage to your roof.
Aging can also be a factor in whether or not you want to replace your roof. Although an asphalt roof may have a life expectancy of 20 to 25 years mold and moss growth can shorten that life expectancy.
If you are remodeling your home, or if you are planning to sell it, a new roof can significantly increase the value. A potential buyer is sure to take the cost of repairs into consideration when making a real estate investment.
If you are not sure if you need a new roof, or if your home is less than 20 years old, you may want to consider getting your roof inspected before replacing it or repairing it. If you are putting off getting your roof fixed because of cost, think again, the longer you wait the more it will cost.
If you think you can do it yourself, imagine trying to balance yourself on a slanted surface with the glare from the hot California sun blinding you. Imagine stepping on a rusty nail or sticking your hand on a blazing hot tar in hundred-degree weather. It is also possible to come into contact with an electric current when attempting to replace your own roof. Electrocution is a common problem amongst those who attempt to reroof their own homes. Do-it-yourself roofers often have ladder accidents. Something as simple as a misplaced ladder can cause you to take a spill. It is not worth risking life and limb just to save a few dollars.
