It's important to keep in mind that while a new roof is an investment, it will also increase the value of your home and protect it from the elements, so don't hesitate to call in a professional if you notice any of the signs below.
It's important to keep an eye on the condition of your roof, especially in Central Texas where extreme weather conditions can take a toll on it. Here are a few signs that it may be time to replace your roof:
High Energy Bills
Your roof should act as an insulator against heat and cold penetrating your home. A poorly performing roof will cause your HVAC system to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature, therefore increasing your energy cost.
Evidence Of Flaking Shingles
When composite and asphalt shingles start to wear out, they begin to shed their granules. If you are finding these coarse, sand-like granules in your gutters, landscaping or yard it’s time to replace your roof.
It's Lost Its Curb Appeal
Check for areas of streaking, disrepair, and worn spots on your roof. Curb appeal is important, but these eyesores are also signs that your roof is in need or replacing
Leaks In The Attic
There is a chance the cause of water in your attic could be a simple repair of flashing. However, the culprit might also be a leaky underlayment. Check for wetness in the attic as well as any staining or discoloration on interior walls and ceilings.
Sagging Roof Deck
Check the decking and rafters occasionally in your home for moisture damage. Wetness will cause decking and rafters to sag rather than remain straight. If the issue is localized, you might be able to avoid a complete roof replacement.
