Roofing 101: How do I know if I need a new roof?

The age old question homeowners around the world asked themselves at one point or another is this: How do I know whether or not I need a new roof? The answer is a question that can be self-diagnosed, but it is always better to seek professional help. Use the following as a guideline for yourself. But ultimately seek a Free Estimate from a professional licensed roofing company to evaluate the condition of your commercial or residential roof.

TOP 10 SIGNS:

1) Curling Roofing Materials - whether you have an asphalt shingle roof or a flat rubber roof, if the material is not laying flat, it's a sign the material is compromised. Heat, UV rays, ice, snow, freezing cold, summer sun and other weather can damage the roof's surface causing the material to buckle. When not laying flat, water is able to wick under and around the roof surface, allowing water infiltration. 

2) Soft Spots - if you walk on a roof, and you feel the plywood beneath the deck surface is soft, that is a sign that water has infiltrated past the roofing material and is starting to decay the wood deck below. Without a full roof tearoff, this rotted plywood would never be replaced. Therefore, any lack of plywood strength is a sign you need a new roof.

3) Damaged Flashing - is the base of the chimney all tarred? Is the metal flashing at the base coming apart? If so, water will find its way in and ultimately leak inside your house. If the metal around the chimney, the metal in the roof valleys, or if any other metal flashing elsewhere is corroded and damaged, that is a sign that the roof has aged and likely is due for replacement.

4) Age of Roof - Age alone is a factor in deciding whether you need a new roof. If your roof is 20-30 years old, you are probably due for a roof replacement. If your roof is 30-50 years old, you are almost certainly due for a full tearoff and new roof installation. Only slate stone and clay tile roofs can withstand that many years of weathering and stay intact, but even then the valleys and flashing should be inspected because the roofing material will usually outlive the copper metal flashing areas.

5) Budget Factors - Do you have the spare funding to afford a new roof? One main factor into whether you need a new roof is your financial situation. If you are experiencing some of the factors listed above, such as an old roof, but not experiencing any leakage, you may fall into the category of "You should replace your roof" because you are financially prepared for it and being proactive with your most valuable asset is always a good bet. Why wait until you leak to spend thousands extra in unnecessary plywood replacement and sheetrock repair when you could replace the roof before that happens.
