Quality Professional Roof Replacement in the El Paso Area
Your roof is many things; durable, strong, protective, long-lasting, and sturdy. It is not however, infinite. Just because your roof is high-quality and has lasted many years doesn’t mean it’s indestructible or that it doesn’t eventually need to be replaced. Asphalt shingle roofs are meant to last between about 20 and 30 years. Generally, you’ll begin to see some signs of deterioration before you need to replace your roof, but in general there are some basic ways to know that your roof needs to be replaced.
How Can I Tell if I Need to Replace My Asphalt Roof?
- Your roof is over 20 years old.. If your home is over 20 years old and has never been replaced, it’s time to begin planning for a replacement. If your home is over 30 years old, there’s no question that it’s time to have your roof replaced. If your roof is over 40, there are likely already problems even if the roof looks okay from the ground.
- Your shingles are curling or cracked. Curled shingles are essentially indicative of weathering and usually mean that leaks are going to become a problem in the near future. Cracked shingles are common on roofs that face a lot of wind damage. You probably need to plan to replace your roof within a few years if your shingles are visibly damaged in that way.
- Your shingles are missing. Over the years, it’s perfectly fine to replace a shingle here and there, but when many of your shingles begin to come off and your roof looks like a checkerboard, it’s time to replace the entire thing.
Flat Roof Replacement
Flat roofs are popular in the El Paso area, especially for businesses and other commercial buildings. Flat roofs are more likely to have leaks than other roofs because water does not easily run off the sides of the roof. These roofs also take a big hit from extreme heat and the dry climate. It’s vital that you contact a professional roof contractor if your flat roof has a leak or otherwise needs to be replaced.
If you have seen water damage stains on your ceiling or walls or you’ve seen bubbling paint, there’s a very good chance you have a leak. Flat roof leaks can cause extensive damage if not repaired as soon as possible. Another tell-tale sign of a leak is mold or mildew on your ceiling or exterior side walls. If your home or business frequently has standing water on the roof, or you’ve seen cracking or other damage, it’s a good idea to call a flat roof replacement professional.
