As a homeowner or property manager, you depend on a solid and leak-free roof to provide you with a safe and healthy environment. Keeping a watchful eye on the condition of your roof is the best possible way to protect your possessions, your inventory and your equipment in the greater Vancouver area. Here are five signs that your roof may be due for a replacement.
Numerous Missing Shingles or Tiles
If only a few tiles or shingles are missing around the edges, your local roofing contractor can typically repair and restore your roof to proper function. If many of the shingles or tiles are missing, however, a new roof is recommended to ensure the best possible protection for your buildings and their contents.
Visible Damage to Roofing Materials
Broken or discoloured shingles and tiles can allow water to seep into the underlayment of your roof, which could result in leaks and a higher potential for mould. If you notice several damaged areas, calling your Vancouver roofing contractor and scheduling an inspection is a good first step toward resolving these issues and protecting the value of your property.
Over 20 Years Old
Asphalt shingle roofs are designed to last for about 20 years before requiring a replacement. If your roof was constructed more than 20 years ago, it may be time to replace it before serious problems arise.
Leaks Inside Your Home or Business
A leaking roof can cause serious damage to the contents of your home or your business premises. If you notice water stains or other signs of water leaking from your roof, calling a Vancouver roofing contractor as soon as possible is the best way to address these issues and to prevent further issues that could end up costing you more.
A Sagging Roof
The weight of snow and ice often causes sagging in older roofs, especially flat or slanted commercial roofs that take the brunt of winter weather. If you notice any sagging of your roof, contacting a Vancouver commercial roofing company is critical to prevent further damage.
