Signs That You Need A Residential Roof Replacement

Your Neighbors Are Getting New Roofs
If you notice that some of your neighbors are investing in a new roof replacement, it may mean that yours is ready to be replaced. Generally in a neighborhood, houses are built around the same time, meaning that the age of the roofs will be similar.
Severe Storm Damage
Inclement weather can bring destruction in its wake. High winds can pick up and throw debris, and in extreme cases, knock down trees. If the debris or the tree were to hit your roof, then you could be looking at structural damage. With structural damage, a simple repair isn’t going to do the trick, you would have to invest in a new roof, in order for the roofers to go in and correct the damage.
The Presence of Moss and Mold
Green or dark patches on your roof, especially in between shingles is a sign that your roof could be suffering from moss or mold. These vegetation pests are bad news for any homeowner, as it signals that moisture has become trapped, giving moss and mold a prime spot to move in. This is typically seen more with asphalt shingle roofs and wooden roofs. If you are noticing a profound growth of moss or mold on your roof, it may be safer to go ahead and replace it, as the structural integrity may have decreased.
Increased Home Value
If you are looking to sell your home and are making remodeling preparations to get the most out of your investment, a new roof could definitely help. Installing a new roof doesn’t just appeal to the aesthetics of the home, but it also increases the financial value, as the likelihood of needing repairs is lower.
