Just like everything else in your home, roofs gain wear and tear over time and eventually need replacement. Sure, fixing a shingle here and there can keep it in good condition, but after long enough every roof needs replacement. But how do you know when is the opportune time to do so? It can be difficult to figure out, as you never really see your roof from inside your home. It’s not something you tend to think about when you think “home improvement.” However, the roof is one of the most important parts of the house structure.
This video sheds some light on when you should consider roof replacement.
The life span of your roof really depends on where you live and the weather conditions your home experiences. Hail, hard rain, and wind all have a part to play in the slow decay of a roof. Additionally, when algae and moss begins to grow on your roof, it needs to come off. These green additions to your gray roof may be indicators that it’s time for roof replacement. Keeping up with roof maintenance is extremely important!
