Warning Signs That Your Home Might Need a New Roof
As your roof ages, it becomes less efficient at protecting your home. You might notice that your utility bills are increasing. Your heater has to work harder to heat your home if cold air is coming in through gaps in the roof. If you see mold or rot on the roof or, even worse, on your ceiling and walls, your roof is probably leaking too much for repairs to fix.
While increasing utility bills, leaks, and rot are all signs of a major problem, you can catch smaller issues by watching for:
- Dark spots
- Moss or algae
- Increased moisture in your attic
- Peeling paint (exterior or interior)
- Exposed fastenings
- Debris accumulation
- Hail damage spots
If you have noticed any of these warning signs, contact Maycon Construction Services. We can guide you through the re-roofing process, from determining whether the roof needs to be replaced to picking the right roofing materials to the installation of the new roof. Call us for a free no-obligation consultation and roof replacement estimate. Our roofing replacement experts will help you determine the best new roof for your home.
Reasons for Replacing a Roof
Your Roof Has Lived Out Its Days
No roof lasts forever. You want to replace your roof while you are in control of the process, not after a traumatic event has forced replacement on you. The durability of your roof depends on the roofing material it’s made from.
If your roof is properly maintained and has had timely repairs when damaged, you can expect:
- Asphalt shingle roofs to last about 20 years
- Fiber cement shingles to last about 25 years
- Wood roofs last about 30 years
- Stone, tile, and metal roofs to last up to 50 years
Sustained Damage Build-up
If you’re from Huntington, WV, you know that we get more than the average rainfall. Our roofs protect us from rain and snow all year long, and if you don’t repair the damage quickly enough, it can spread across the entire roof.
If your roof is the wrong shape for your climate or house, you will probably need to replace it sooner. Flat roofs and roofs with low slopes can develop ponding and standing water problems, especially in areas with heavy rainfall.
In areas that tend to freeze in winter, ice can build up at the end of the roof, damming melting water and preventing it from draining off. When that happens, water is forced under the shingles and down into your home.
Our roofing experts will inspect your roof to assess its condition and determine whether you need roof repair, a partial replacement, or a complete roof replacement. Maycon Construction has you covered. We offer roof repair and roof replacement services, whether they’re planned or the result of an emergency.
If insects (especially termites), birds, or animals (mainly mice and squirrels) have infested your roof, the damage can be significant. Besides the damage to the roofing materials, there could be damage to the insulation and interior walls, not to mention the usual damage caused by pest infestations. If you find signs of pests in your home but haven’t found their access point, be sure to call in Maycon Construction to inspect your roof for signs of pest infestation.
Natural Disasters – Rain, Wind & Hail Storm Roof Damage
If your roof sustains traumatic damage from a fallen tree, hail, high winds, or rockfall, and the damage is substantial enough, you’ll have to replace the roof. If an act of nature caused the damage, and you have an all-perils home insurance policy, the roof replacement costs will most likely be covered. Our team can work with you and your insurance company to ensure you receive all your insurance roof replacement benefits.
Increasing Your Home’s Real Estate Value
Are you planning to sell your home in the near future? Consider replacing your roof as part of the process. A new roof will increase curb appeal and give a sense of security to potential buyers.
Are you planning an addition or remodel? Consider replacing the entire roof at the same time. As above, the new roof will increase the value of your home. If your roof is near its replacement schedule anyway, replacing it while you’re having the addition built or the remodel constructed will minimize the disruption caused by major construction on your home.
