Common Roofing Questions and Answers
There are few things more relaxing than being indoors during an evening summer storm. Most of us have experienced an increase in wet weather this spring, as the Missouri Climate Center reports record rainfall and historic flooding has occurred as recently as last month. While summer storms may be relaxing, a leaky roof is the exact opposite. No one wants to invite the wet weather indoors, and TrueSon Exteriors knows the importance of having a reliable roof in mid-Missouri. As a premier exterior home remodeler, TrueSon Exteriors is dedicated to providing our customers with quality service. Let’s answer some questions you may have about roofing and take a closer look at how TrueSon can help you stay dry this summer.
How do I know it’s time to replace my roof?
Replacing a roof can seem like a daunting task, and the timeline of replacement isn’t always common knowledge. According to Good Housekeeping, there are a couple of different signs indicating it’s time to replace your roof. If your roof is approaching its 25th birthday, it’s time for a replacement. Executive director of The National Association of Home Inspectors, Claude McGavic, says an asphalt shingle roof should last between 20 and 30 years. Another sign your roof needs to be replaced is finding granules in your gutter. According to McGavic, Granules are what help keep the sun off the asphalt, and if they’re falling off that means the shingles are going to bake.
What visual cues should I look for on my roof?
There are a couple of different indicators to look for when determining whether your roof needs to be re-shingled or replaced. If your shingles are curling, or they are covered in moss or algae, it’s definitely time to reroof. If certain shingles are cracked, or there are entire shingles missing from your roof, it’s time to give TrueSon Exteriors a call. Another way you can determine if your roof needs maintenance is from the inside out. Go up to your attic and look up. If you can see sunlight peeking through, and it’s not because of custom skylight, your roof needs some major TLC. We’re the most quality roofers in Columbia, MO.
