Signs Your Roof Needs to be Replaced or Repaired

Posted on

Roof maintenance can be tricky business, with professional contractors needed to do the majority of repairs. Wether you need a full replacement or simply a bit of triage, Sela is here to help. Cross check these signs that your roof may need some TLC, and give us a call today!

Showing Signs of Age

If your roof is 20+ years old, odds are it’s going to fall into disrepair sooner rather than later. Past roofing options weren’t as durable or sustainable as more modern versions, which are built to last for much, much longer. If your roof is starting to show wear and tear, looks faded or uneven, it’s recommended to get a professional opinion. Ignoring the issue longterm can lead to greater damage to your home, at a greater cost of repair. Sela uses the most advanced materials, backed by a lifetime guarantee — it’s a win-win!

Cracking, Shifting, or Lifting Shingles

Telltale signs of a roof beginning its downward spiral are easy to spot. Are your shingles curling up or lifting at the edges? are they becoming uneven or appear to be close to slipping off in areas? Can you see visible cracks on the shingles’ surface? These are all clear signals of a problem. Sela can come out and assess the situation for you, and offer the best solutions for your home and budget.

Discoloration & Natural Growth

Seeing random streaks of discoloration on your roof can indicate algae growth — and while not necessarily a foundational issue, is certainly a cosmetic one that can typical be corrected without having to replace the roof. Moss and other natural growths can make their way into moisture-rich areas of an older roof, eventually causing damage to the surface of your shingles. This can be removed, but may grow back. Contact Sela to explain your situation and see how we can help — we’ve seen it all!
