Your roof might look good from the street, but up close it may tell a different story. Getting an inspection is a good move every year or so to determine whether your roof needs replacement or repair.
Here are some things to look out for:
A roof over 15 years old with damage has a higher likelihood of needing to be replaced. If your current roof is younger than that, and the only wear or damage is small and easily repaired, a replacement can most likely wait.
2. Water Damage
- If your roof has spots where water damage has occurred and a large portion is rotten or feels soft, you’ll most likely want to replace it. But depending on the size of the rotted area, you may be able to patch it and get more life out of your roof investment.
3. Storm Damage
There are some instances in the PNW where large branches can hit and puncture your roof during a storm, or knock a shingle loose and start to cause water damage. It’s best to determine how big the hole is and the age of your roof. If the hole is fairly small, a patch job should suffice. Have us give you a free estimate and decide whether to do it yourself or have us patch it for you.
- If multiple areas of your roof are rotting or are laden with moss and branches, you may need to replace the entire thing.
- Again, determine whether you need to repair or replace it considering the age of your roof, and the severity of the damage.
