Roofs leaks are not the only sign that your roof needs repaired.
Knowing when your roof needs repair
It doesn't take a roofing company to spot obvious problem areas:
· curled/cracked shingles
· missing pieces of flashing
· shingles that have gone MIA
· shingles that are excessively dirty or appear to be worn
When the Arizona sun cause shingles to curl, or winter causes ice to build up under shingles – it is easy for strong winds to remove the shingles from your roof. Leaving it unprotected.
Do I need a new roof?
According to Consumer Reports.org
if your roof is around 20 years old, and your getting leaks, you’re probably going to have to change it - John Galeotafiore
Many times you can get away with a simple patch especially if the roof is less than 10 years old. The decision to patch versus replace comes down to visuals; it is not likely that the patch is going to be same color/texture of roof.
When it comes to an asphalt roof type, you can add a new layer of shingles as an alternative to replacing the entire roof. However, it is an industry standard that you don’t use more than two layers as it begins to effect the overall weight of your structure.
