Common Roofing Problems - Image 1

The average lifespan of a roof is twenty years before it begins to deteriorate. Sometimes, homeowners replace their roofs before that age, because their roofs was seriously damaged. It's important to replace your roof every fifteen to twenty years because it can provide durable and long-lasting protection for your home. You're probably thinking, "My roof hasn't been replaced in over twenty-five years and it's still fine." Not only does a roof protect your home, but it's also a part of your property value and investment. You bought your home, so you have to take care of it. A deteriorating roof can drastically lower your home's property value. No one wants to buy a new home that has a rotting roof. But if our roof doesn't leak, how can we tell if it's deteriorating? Let's list out the common problems of a roof.

The Common Problems of a Roof include:

  • Ridge caps missing or blown off
  • Roofing shingles are damaged or missing
  • Valleys leaking
  • Pipe boots leaking
  • Chimney flashing leaking
  • Damaged brickwork
  • The Chimney crown is cracked or missing
  • Moldy roof deck
  • Attic air leaks
  • Ducts in the attic
  • Skylight leaking
  • Gutters sagging or clogged
  • Black water streaks

These are all indications of roof deterioration. Some may be worse than others, but overall it's not good. Now you're probably saying to yourself, "Oh wait, I'm experiencing that problem/s with my roof. I should replace it right?" RIGHT! Remember, replacing your roof provides more durable protection for you and your home. It also increases your home's property value.
