When Is It Time For A New Roof?
When it comes to making the decision on whether you need roof repair or need a new roof altogether it is best to have a company like JJS Renovations to give you a cost analysis of total damages. However, what are symptoms to look for when it's time for a new roof?
Ceiling Spots - If you see persistent water stains that are marring your beautiful ceiling? Those stains are known as ceiling spots - and they are a direct effect of a leaking roof. Usually a quick roof repair can fix a leak of this nature, but if your ceiling has many leaks it is time for a new roof.
Roof is Buckling - If certain parts of your roof's shingles look like folded up bits of paper, then that is a bad sign your roof is buckling. Buckling typically occurs when a roof has been improperly installed, or just due to time, as with older roofs. Unfortunately, a simple repair won't fix this major problem, JJS Renovations can give you a quote to replace your roof.
Roof Is Rotting - Many homeowners mistake algae for rot. Rot occurs when the roof mat absorbs the air's moisture, causing the shingles to disintegrate and the roof itself to become weak and unstable. In this case, it's best to have JJS Renovations help you identify what's plaguing your home, as an improper diagnosis could cost you thousands of dollars.
Roof Has Leaks And Is Blistering - Blistering occurs when there is moisture trapped in the shingle which is a definite sign of an improperly ventilated roof. If you're also contending with ceiling leaks, then a simple roof repair won't suffice. In this situation you need to call us to see what we can do.
