Many Wisconsin homeowners probably do not know when the time has arrived to repair or replace their roof. A few sure signs that your roof needs to be serviced by a premier Kenosha roofer is when it starts to deteriorate and wear down from age and abuse from the elements, or if it is leaking. There are several factors that Kenosha County homeowners should be aware of concerning their roof.
How Old Is Your Roof?
This will always be the easiest way to know when the time has come for a roof replacement. The first thing you need to know is what kind of roofing materials you have. A metal roof, for example, can last for up to 50 years or more when it is properly maintained, while a 3 tab shingle can serve up to 20 years with adequate maintenance from a Kenosha roof repair contractor, and some good fortune.
Is Your Roof Leaking?
The second-largest caution sign that you need a licensed and certified roofing contractor in Kenosha is for a leaking roof. After all of the severe hail, wind, and thunderstorms we saw last spring and summer it would be no surprise to have storm damage to your roof, especially if it is older and already had any curling, buckled, or missing shingles. To avoid extra costly renovations to other parts of your home, get a professional roof inspection if your roof is leaking or has been damaged by a storm.
Can You See Roof Damage?
If you can discern any damage to your roof while standing on the ground such as cracked, blistered, or missing shingles, your roof is placing your home at a larger risk for other damage and demands some attention. Furthermore, look at the metal flashing that is applied to seal any joints of roof vent pipes, boots, and appliances to see if it is cracked, rusted, or missing altogether. If it is, phone a Kenosha roof repair pro ASAP to inspect and repair it!
