First, many homeowners aren’t sure whether they require a roof replacement.
Q1. When do I need a roof replacement?
It depends. What’s certain, though, is that safety is our number one priority. We encourage homeowners not to inspect their home as to do so carries the risk of serious injury.
In an earlier blog, we examined why you need a roof replacement. We learned that there are several trigger signs that indicate a roof replacement may be required:
- If the roof is between 20 and 30 years old
- If asphalt shingles are damaged, cracked or bending
- If shingles are missing in their entirety
You may also notice mold formation, dry rot and peeling paint. None of the above factors mean you need a full roof replacement. A qualified roofer needs to examine the roof on a case-by-case basis – determining what the best course of action should be.
Q2. My roofing problem appears minor. Can’t I repair it myself?
We urge homeowners not to repair roofing problems themselves. There are two main reasons for this:
- First, while the problem may – on the face of things – appear small, there could be a major underlying, structural issue at fault.
- Second, there are serious safety concerns about inspecting and/or performing roof repairs.
That’s why our team of roofers in Corvallis have been trained to the very highest standards – not only professional roofing standards but also safety standards, too.
Q3. What is the cost of roof repairs and a roof replacement?
This depends upon a wide variety of factors, including:
- The type, nature and severity of the roof repair / replacement in question
- The type of roofing material you wish to use – some materials are cheap, others are considerably more expensive
- Where the building is located, and the challenges associated with this location
Q4. I’ve noticed my roof is starting to leak. What does this mean?
Identifying a leak could be an indication of one of two things. It may be self-limiting, in which case the leak has been identified before it spread and caused other damage throughout the home. Alternatively, the leak may be a symptom of a wider structural problem that has manifested in the roof.
In either of these cases, a full roof replacement may not be required. You should contact your local roofers to determine the cause of the problem and, from there, learn about what course of action can be taken to limit and/or deal with the problem in question.
