Should You Replace Your Roof In 2019?
As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to make your to-do list for 2019. That includes figuring out all the home improvement updates your home might need in the next few months, whether that’s scheduling repairs or figuring out what needs replacing. Don’t forget about the larger fixes and replacements as well, like your roof. Does your roof need replacing at the start of the new year? Here are a few signs to look for to know for sure if you should contact your local roof replacement contractors for the start of the year.
Check Your Shingles
Your shingles are going to be one of the first signs that it’s time to repair your roof. If the corners of the shingles seem to be curling up or some of the shingles on your roof have cracks in them, you’ll want to get in touch with your local roof replacement contractors. Damaged shingles mean that you’ll likely need to replace your roof at the start of the new year. You should also perform a chimney inspection.
Check Your Old Calendars
Do you remember the last time your roof was replaced? If not, it might be a good idea to check when you last had your roof inspected or replaced. If it’s been a few decades, it could be time to contact your roof replacement contractors. Asphalt shingles have a lifespan of 20 to 50 years depending on the climate in which they are installed, so if you have an asphalt roof that’s a few decades old, they could be due for a refresh.
Check Your Neighbors
Next time you’re walking through the neighborhood, take a quick look at your neighbor’s roofs. If it looks like they’ve been updated recently, it could mean that your home is also due for a roof replacement. Many homes in the same neighborhood are roughly the same age, meaning that if your neighbors are replacing their roofs, it probably means you should as well.
