TB Roofing & Construction LLC understands that roof installation is a big deal for home and business owners. When extensive damage or wear occurs, and repairs are no longer feasible, it’s time to explore options to replace the old materials with new ones.
Knowing when it’s time for a new roof depends on the materials used. Some roofs have a longer life than others, lasting decades without appreciable wear occurring. For the traditional asphalt shingles, homeowners should not expect to get more than about 20 years between roof jobs. Sometimes shingles will come loose, allowing moisture to seep beneath the top layer. If this happens, mold can be a major issue that will necessitate replacement immediately. Clay tiles are another popular material. Not only do tiles add an inherent beauty to a structure, they may remain strong and resilient for as long as 50 years.
Monitoring a roof will give the homeowner clues that it may be time to call in the professionals. Aside from advancing age, other clues include curled or buckled shingles, missing shingles, flashing issues, and finding granules from the roof accumulating in the gutters.
When it’s time to schedule work, professionals can make the replacement easy. After inspection, the crew will remove the old material, if necessary, and then inspect the structure. The crew will then begin replacing any worn components and adding the felt and new shingles. A final inspection and cleanup of the job site will finish the process.
