You don’t want to replace it too soon since you’ll be wasting money away, but you don’t want to wait too long, or else you’re your entire home could sustain substantial damage.
Keep an Eye Out for Early Signs of Roof Damage
It is imperative to understand the telltale signs of roof problems that could cause significant damage to your roof. If your roof is still in excellent shape, a repair will do the job. However, if there your roof appears to be worn down or more than 20 years old, replacement is necessary.
If you inspect the condition of your roof once a year – by viewing it through binoculars or calling a licensed contractor to take a look at it – you should be able to develop a plan for necessary present or future repairs.
The following are warning signs of roof damage:
- Dark areas on ceilings
- Damp spots along the fireplace
- Peeling paint on the underside of roof overhangs
- Water stains on pipes venting on pipes venting the furnace or water heater
- Cracked caulk
- Rust spots on the flashing
- Blistering, buckling, or curling shingles
