Five Signs to Invest in a New Metal Roof
We get it, you don’t want to spend a large amount of cash on a new roof when you don’t absolutely need one; however, the cost of damage repair to the roof and other home components can get costly. Here are five signs you need a new metal roof:
Reason #1 – Ceiling Stains
These stains mean more than your roof is leaking. You may have mold growing in your attic. Ceiling stains are typically due to a water leak somewhere in the roof. Yes, it may be one area that is leaking; however, a ceiling stain doesn’t happen overnight. It takes weeks, and in some cases, months to form. This means that the development of mold and other damages have had some time to accumulate. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Have one of Houser Roofing’s experts come out and inspect your roof to find the leak. Then, work to get your interior repaired as soon as possible.
Reason #2 – A Buckling or Curling Roof
Whether traditional asphalt roofing or metal roofing, if you notice buckling, curling, or torn material (metal can tear, too), you need to call your local roofing contractor immediately. The sooner the roof is repaired, the less likely you’ll get a leak.
Reason #3 – Shingle Dark Spots
This is a sign that you have algae or mold growing on or within your roof. It’s best to get this taken care of as soon as possible to deter further water damage or health issues for you or your family. A great way to reduce the chance of mold or algae on a roof is to invest in a metal roof!
Reason #4 – Missing Roof Pieces
Whether asphalt, shingles, or metal, if you’re missing roof pieces, it’s time to call your local roofer for an inspection. You will most likely need to order new pieces to replace the damage. Furthermore, you may want to check for water damage that may have accumulated while that piece was missing.
Reason #5 – Structural Damage
If a tree has fallen onto your home or a car has taken out a wall, you may need to replace your roof entirely. The structural damage incurred may have also damage the roof. It’s best to get a professional inspection to determine if you need a new roof or not.
