Grand View Roofing & Exteriors Q&A

At what point should you start thinking about replacing your roof?

At Grand View Roofing & Exteriors, we are dedicated to serving both our existing and prospective clients. We have compiled a checklist of factors to keep in mind when assessing if it is time for a roof replacement.

If your roof has not been replaced in over 15 years, there are some signs you should look out for that may indicate the need for a replacement.

These include but are not always limited to:

1. Light shining through from the outside into your attic

2. buckled or curled shingles

3. broken or cracked shingles

4. shingle granules in your gutters

5. debris build-up around your chimney

6. growth of moss on the roof

7. dark discoloration in the attic plywood

8. a sagging roof is always a BIG red flag to get an estimate

9. missing or broken flashing or fascia boards

10. your air conditioner is running more than it should be.

Lastly, if you have had any of the listed occurrences or have had multiple repairs and are still experiencing issues with your roof, it may be time to consider a replacement. We'd love to arrange a meeting with you to address any queries or apprehensions you may have regarding the roof replacement process. Our aim is to ensure that the process is seamless and hassle-free for you. Give us a call today!
