Do You Need Roof Replacement? Here are Signs to Look For.

There’s never a good time to realize you need to replace your roof, but winter is the absolute worst. Any minor problem with your home’s roof can be worsened by winter problems like ice dams hindering the flow of water off your roof or the weight of accumulating snow stressing your roof and gutters. Patriot Exteriors, LLC can provide you with a full range of services to ensure that your roof is in good condition and provides your home with the protection it needs during the harsh West Michigan winters. The sooner these issues are fixed, the less chance there is of a severe problem with your roof. In today’s post, we will discuss the warning signs that you may need service on your home’s roof.

Check Your Shingles

Worn, loose, or missing shingles are the first sign that you need roofing service. Traditional asphalt shingles will last about 20 years, give or take. Once these shingles near the end of their lifespan, these problems will begin happening more frequently. You should check your shingles periodically to identify these issues, especially after any major storms. If you notice shingles that are worn, damaged, or missing, you should contact the professionals at Patriot Exteriors, LLC to address these issues before they become a huge, expensive project.

Identify Storm Damage

As mentioned above, you should examine your roof (and the rest of your home, for that matter) as soon as you are able to do so safely after a severe storm. In most cases, serious damage to your roof is going to be obvious, but if you are unsure, it’s best to get an opinion from an expert roofing contractor, like Patriot Exteriors, LLC, who can determine if there is any damage and how much work is needed to correct the problem. Whether this requires some repair work or a full replacement, you can count on Patriot Exteriors to restore your roof as quickly as possible.

Signs of Rot Should Be Addressed ASAP

If you notice any areas of your West Michigan roof that are sagging, it’s a sign that you may have rotting in your roof. This is a sign that the structure of your roof is starting to fail and needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
