Signs Your Roof Needs Replacement

There can be a number or signs that showcase your need for a full roof replacement:

  • Cracked or Curled Shingles – If the bulk of your shingles have become misshaped, a full roof replacement of new shingles in the ideal solution.
  • The Roof is More Than 20 Years Old – Even if your shingles are still in good ocnstion, a roof deck can become severely deteriorated after 20 plus years.
  • Major Roof Leaks – Small roof leaks can be patched and repaired. Several roof leaks or major roof leaks can require full roof replacements.
  • Moisture or Mold in the Roof – Mold throughout your roof’s underside or showing through the shingles, is a clear sign of major roof damages.
  • A Sagging or Spongey Roof Deck – A sagging portion of your roof means that the roof structure has lost its integrity. If your roof feels spongy when you walk on it, it is a sign of water damage or deterioration. Replacing the deck and joists underneath give your roof a fresh start.

Roof Replacement Process

Roofs are built for different purposes and with different building styles. The processes associated with replacing a residential roof is much different from the processes required to replace a flat roof on an industrial building. The roof replacement process ensures a safe and efficient roof replacement. These are the common steps for a roof replacement:

  • Property Protection – Tarps and plywood are placed over the sides of the property to ensure no falling debris damages the siding or breaks any windows.
  • Material Removal – The old roofing materials will be removed to expose the deck for inspection. A special roof removal shovel with a serrated front edge and pitched back is ideal for this process.
  • Deck Inspection – The base of the roof will need to be fully inspected for damage, rotting wood and missing nails. The rafters underneath the deck will also be inspected.
  • Shingle Preparation – A drip edge will be applied to the roof edges. A drip edge is a piece of metal flashing that prevents moisture from getting under the roof around the edges. The roofing underlayment and moisture shield layers can then be installed.
  • Shingle, Vent & Flashing Installation – The shingles, as well as roof vents and then flashing, can now be installed on the roof. Different shingle styles will require varying installation methods.
  • Site Clean Up & Final Inspection – The worksite will be completely cleaned and removed of any debris. The last step is a final roof insection to ensure that your new roof is completely and correctly replced.
