Signs you may need a new roof
Sometimes, it’s obvious when you need a new roof. You can see massive damage, the roof isn’t holding up like it should, or it has a deep cave in. Other times, it’s not as straightforward. There are a few things you can check for that indicate your roof should be looked at. If you catch them quick enough, you might be able to stop them early enough so that they can be repaired instead of needing a whole roof replacement.
One of the most straightforward signs that your roof may need a replacement is if it starts to sag. Sagging roofs tend to happen because of too much weight on the roof, which can happen due to snow, ice, or something as simple as too many layers of shingles. Over time, the internal bracing can have trouble holding the weight and start to sag. Eventually, this can lead to a collapse and should be addressed as soon as possible.
Noticeable stains on the ceiling often suggest a more serious problem is at work. Many times this is because of water damage. If enough water gets in to make a stain it means your roof is either damaged or leaking. Either way you shouldn’t wait if you notice ceiling stains. These can grow into large concentrations of water that drip onto the floor and can even burst.
Curled, buckling, or missing groups of shingles
The shingles on your roof are meant to lie flat to protect your roof. If instead they’re curled or buckling, the underlay of the roof may be getting wet. Typically, shingles don’t fall off on their own. If large groups of shingles are missing this can mean that something is stopping them from adhering properly which might mean you have a leak in the roof somewhere. Sometimes storms and high winds can cause some to fall off too but often you can replace small sections without needing a whole new roof installed.
How long does roof installation take?
While we can’t give an accurate time frame without looking at the house, we can give you a general idea of how long it takes to install a new roof. For asphalt shingle roofs, getting the roof installed typically takes a day to a few days. But in some cases it can be about a week. For metal roofs, it tends to be a closer to a week for roof installation. However there are a lot of factors that can change the time estimate so get in touch with us if you need a more detailed estimate.
