Signs You Might Need a New Roof
While we will work to do what we can to repair your roof when possible, sometimes, it is more cost efficient to do a complete roof replacement instead of investing in one that is failing. If you notice any of the following issues with your roof, call Cox Brothers Roofing at (361) 277-0014 and we will help guide you toward the right decision for your specific situation.
Check Your Attic
If you have an attic and have access to it, checking the status of your roof from inside of your attic can be a great place to start. If there are streams of light coming through from the outside, then you will want to schedule a roofer to come see if it is repairable. Holes in your roof can cause a lot of issues for your home and can cause damage to your belongings. Besides light coming through, any water stains or streaks in your attic are likely being caused by leaks in your roof. These need immediate attention as well.
Refer to your home improvement records or residential property disclosure forms from when you purchased the property. The typical shingle roof can last for 20-25 years, and a metal roof can last up to 70 years. The older a roof gets, the higher the likelihood that damage is going to require a complete roof replacement. If you do not have access to any records indicating how old your roof is, you might be able to be clued in by your neighbors. Often times, homes in a neighborhood are built around the same time, so if you see multiple neighbors around you getting their roofs replaced, it might be wise to make an appointment for an inspection!
If you start to notice water marks or leaks inside of your home, this could be caused by a damaged or aging roof. Water leaking from the outside is a hotbed for damaging molds and bacteria that you do not want in your home. Additionally, the extra moisture will cause damage to the structure of your home and, potentially, your belongings as well.
If you have an asphalt shingle roof, there are some telltale signs that it might be time for a roof replacement. For starters, if any or multiple shingles are missing completely, these need to be replaced. If the shingles are all starting to curl at the edges or are cracking, this is a sign that your roof might need some love as well.
Airborne algae can cause dark stains to appear on your roof which can make your roof look older than it is. This, in turn, can reduce the value of your home. In addition to hurting the aesthetics of your property, prolonged exposure to any kind of algae speeds up the deterioration and rotting process.
Moss will often pop up on your roof in between shingles, and they are prone to show up in climates with a lot of rain and cooler temperatures. Moss is damaging to your roof because it absorbs moisture which can cause a lot of different problems. Over time, you will notice cracks and missing granules due to the moss if left untreated.
While steel roofs do have a reputation for being a lower maintenance option, they are not impervious to damage and do not last forever. If you have a tin, steel, or metal roof, and you start to notice rust, discoloration, loosened nails, punctures, leaks, or any other sign of deterioration, it is probably time for a replacement.
A. After severe weather such as strong winds or hail, you may not be able to notice the damage done to your roof from ground level. Seeing shingles on the ground, however, is a clear indication that damage was done. If your roof is missing shingles, it could very well leak during the next storm. This makes it important that you have a professional roofer inspect the damage and assess the best course of action to keep your roof in top shape.
A. It depends on what type of work your roof needs. When it comes to smaller, more localized work like a quick leak repair, it may not be worth it to file an insurance claim. For more extensive work such as a roof replacement, filing a claim may be more of a necessity than anything. After a storm however, filing a claim is a great idea and our team can help you out!
A. Even if you can’t see any damage to your roof, it’s still a good idea to get your roof inspected after a hailstorm comes through. Cox Brothers Roofing offers free roof inspections. Our roofers always communicate clearly with homeowners about any repairs that may be necessary. If your roof doesn’t need any work, we’ll let you know so you can move on without worrying about the roof over your head.
A. Many homeowners know the damage that hail can do to their roof. Extremely high winds can also cause damage to roofs. The main difference is where the damage is found. Wind damage is often localized to the windward side of the roof. Hail damage is more likely to be found across the entire roof, and more often results in needing a full roof replacement to repair the damage.
A. If your roof has been severely damaged, especially if it’s letting water or hail into your home, call for emergency storm damage repair. Even if the roof cannot be repaired immediately, emergency tarping can be erected to protect your home in the meantime.
