1 HOW DO I KNOW IF MY ROOF NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED OR REPLACED?
The homeowner usually doesn’t know until the roof problems are discovered after a leaking occurs, or some other serious damages happen. But roof inspections can uncover cracked, warped, or missing shingles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts; and other visible signs of roof problems. Inside the house look for cracked paint, or peeled wallpaper as signs of Roof Damage.
2 MY ROOF IS LEAKING; DO I HAVE TO HAVE IT REPLACED COMPLETELY?
Leaks can be caused as a result of flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof being damaged. You can have a complete roof failure which is irreversible and a result of improper installation or the materials that were used on the roof, or it could be caused by inappropriate roof installation for the house.
