We all wish our roof would last forever but, unfortunately, it won’t. When do you know that it is time to call Newnan roofers for repair or replacement of your roof?
Any of the following roof issues can cause a host of problems that can lead to more expensive repairs down the road unless they are taken care of immediately. Water can seep in and saturate the attic space causing damage to the roof decking, rafters and insulation. If left unattended long enough it can eventually damage the ceilings in the home. In some cases, if left unrepaired long enough, roofing damage can eventually lead to mold growth inside the home.
Missing shingles are common on older roofs. The shingles can also be blown off of newer roofs that have been through a period of rough, high wind weather. High winds and tornadoes can blow shingles off of a roof during a storm.
Chimney Flashing and Roof Valleys
Two areas of the roof that will need repair immediately to prevent leaks and damage to chimneys and decking are chimney flashing and valleys. These issues are usually caused by age but can be the result of extreme weather like expansion damage from the freeze and thaw cycle of ice and snow.
Granules Missing on Shingles
This type of damage is common in older roofing but can also be caused in newer roofs that have been damaged by hail. This type of damage needs to be repaired or the roof replaced immediately because it results in leaks.
Damage can happen to a roof no matter how old or new it is. Anytime you think your roof may be damaged is a good time to call Newnan roofers to look at and evaluate your roof and make a professional recommendation on the replacement or repair to prevent future water damage to the home.
