How do you know when it’s time to replace your roof? Since a roof replacement is a significant investment, Kanga Roof has developed this guide to help homeowners understand their roofs and when to plan on roof repairs and replacement. If you discover a leak in your roof, it is important to act as quickly as possible. A small leak can quickly become a large problem as it can start damaging the other areas of the home including drywall, ceilings, and rafters. Depending upon the age of the roof and the condition it is in, are you seeking to repair or replace your roof. A patch job repair should be the first sign that you need to start planning and saving to purchase a new roof within the near future.
If you have experienced a recent wind or hail storm, it shows it’s a good idea to have your roof inspected. Despite the age of the roof, you should consider replacing it because wind or hail damage almost always damages other areas of the roof you cannot see. The wind can easily blow shingles and sheathing away from the home, especially if it was not properly installed to start with. Hail damage is normally easier to recognize than wind damage for some homeowners.
Do you know how old the roof is? An aging roof with worn shingles will need to be replaced. Roofs under 10 years old need to have basic repairs, but anything over that age should be inspected by a professional roofer. Older shingles are brittle and trying to repair sections of the roof could end up harming your roof more than helping it. Kanga Roof provides free roofing inspections to ensure your roof will be able to protect your home.
Improper Roof Installation
Quite often people replace a roof based on price alone. What happens when you opt for a cheaper roof? The materials and installation are not as effective, which can mean it won’t last as long. The roof also will not be able to work as effectively against the harsh Utah weather. At Kanga Roof, we focus on making sure your roof is installed properly the first time. We do provide free roof inspections and can identify problems with your roof, and give you solutions on what you can do to ensure your roof will work correctly.
