How Do You Know If You Need To Replace Your Roof?
Many roofing issues can be solved through repairs (we do those too)! But there are some systemic issues with roofs, especially as they age that repairs just won't fix. If you're seeing any of the following problems, you might want to think about replacing your roof.
Sometimes when roofs are older, they can't bear the weight of snow and ice. In Michigan, we get plenty of that, so winter is actually a good season to give your roof an eyeball inspection. If you're seeing areas where the roof appears to be sagging or buckling, you might have some significant problems in the structural elements of the roof itself. It is always best to call a Davison roofing contractor if you notice sagging or buckling of your home's roof.
Leaks That Won't Stop
Some leaks can be solved with some quick patching or replacing some shingles. But if you have a persistent roof leak, you may need to replace the entire system. Roof leaks are common in Michigan, as ice tends to expand and contract elements of the roofing system, which can cause gaps to form for water to leak through. If you patch your roof and the leaking continues or springs up in another spot, then a Grand Blanc roofing company can help you replace your roof.
Heat Loss or Quickly Melting Snow
Michigan roofs are great at telling you what's wrong with them. The snow on your roof shouldn't melt quickly, and definitely shouldn't melt in 'streaks'. This can be due to improper insulation, but often it is a sign that your roof has succumbed to the harsh winter conditions in Michigan. If you notice this problem, a Fenton roofing contractor would be able to inspect your roof and help you.
