Your roof and chimney are two of the most important parts of your home. They protect you from the elements, keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and can add to your home’s curb appeal. It is important to keep your roof and chimney in good shape to prevent leaks, fires, and other damage.
Regular maintenance and timely repairs are crucial to ensure that these vital structures remain in good shape. In Westmoreland County, PA, there’s no better contractor for the job than NJK Home Remodeling.
Over time, even the best roofs will need to be replaced.
Here are some signs that your home may need a new roof:
Your roof is over 20 years old. The average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is 20-25 years. If your roof is older than this, it’s time to start thinking about a replacement.
Your shingles are curling or missing. Curling shingles are a sign that the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan. Missing shingles can allow water to leak into your home, causing damage.
You see granules in your gutters or yard. The granules on asphalt shingles help to protect them from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. If you see granules in your gutters or yard, it’s a sign that the shingles are starting to break down and need to be replaced.
You have water damage in your attic or home. This is a serious sign that your roof is leaking. If you see water stains on your ceiling, mold or mildew growth, or warped or buckled wood, it’s time to call a roofer.
Your roof is sagging or damaged. A sagging roof is a sign of structural damage. If your roof is damaged by a storm or other event, it may need to be replaced.
