Your roof helps control energy expenditure, protects your home from the elements and even plays a role in its curb appeal. For this reason, many choose to keep their roof maintained and perform regular upkeep. However, even the most diligent homeowners will need to hire a Chicago roof repair team to perform replacement services at some point down the road.
Durable Roofing has helped hundreds of homeowners determine when it’s time for roof replacement and they’ve collected some of that insight here.
- Wind Damage
High winds can easily do a number on your roof. If your home has been hit by a storm recently, consider calling a Chicago roof repair team for a roof inspection. Missing or bent shingles might mean you need roof replacement services.
- Leaky Roof
When you have a leaky roof, the sooner you act the better. Roof leaks can quickly cause damage to your roof deck and other areas of the home. A leaky roof can also lead to unpleasant mold and mildew growth, so fixing or replacing it ASAP is recommended.
- Granules in Gutter
Have you noticed asphalt granules washing up in the gutter or downspouts when it rains? If so, consider replacing your roof. Once the asphalt granules have fallen off of your shingles, they’ll begin to crack due to overexposure to sunlight; then leaks and structural issues aren’t far behind.
- Damaged Flashing
Flashing is installed with the fixtures upon your roof, like vents and chimneys that also enter the home. It’s designed to seal cracks and entryways. But over time it can become loose or damaged, creating drafts or leaks.
- Gutter Damage
Gutters move water off of your roof and away from your home. However, when they’re damaged, water can seep back inside your roof creating moisture issues. If not fixed in a timely manner, these issues eventually force the need for roof replacement.
