Warning Signs You May Need a New Roof
Higher Power Bill Than Usual
When you notice your power bill is higher than usual, then you may have an insulation problem. Oftentimes, it means that it's time to have your roof replaced.
Visible Water Damage
If you can visibly see water damage on your roof, then you need to call a professional ASAP. Aside from damage to your roof, this can cause health issues and safety issues.
Excessive Shingle Wear
This is a sign that can be easily missed if you don't regularly inspect your roof. If there is excessive shingle wear, then there's a chance your roof has already been damaged.
Cracking Along Walls And/Or Sagging Roof
In Florida, it is common for sinkholes to form, causing damage to well-constructed areas. Cracking walls and sagging roofs are clear signs that your homes' foundation is weakening.
Sunlight Visible Through Cracks In Roof
The next time that you are in your attic, or can view the underside of your roof: check for light shining through small cracks. This is a tell-tale sign that it's time to replace your roof.
Your Neighbors Have Replaced Their Roof Recently
In many neighborhoods, the majority of homes were built around the same time. If your neighbor had to replace their roof recently, there's a good chance you will need to do the same.
