Is it Time for a New Roof?
For those of us here in the Denver, Colorado area, the winter is here! While you probably had to bring out your snow shovels a little earlier than anticipated, it was also a good first test for your home’s roof. Before the next snow storm rolls through, now is a good time to ask yourself: is it time for a new roof?
Winter weather and its impact on your roof
We all know that this recent snow storm won’t be the last one this year. That means you need to make sure your home is in good shape to handle these upcoming winter elements — specifically the roof of your home. Heavy snow can be a major burden on a roof that is old and worn down.
First thing is first: bring out a roof expert to analyze your roof — especially if your roof is over ten years old. It never hurts to get your roof looked at by an expert. There could be issues going on that you didn’t realize were happening.
Here are some of the things a roof expert will look for:
- Broken shingles
- Rust spots on flashing
- Cracked rubber around vent pipes
- Curled shingles
- Areas of the roof that are sagging
- Visible damage from debris
If a roof expert spots a problem related to any one of the above listed items, you will want to get this fixed right away to avoid potential leaks and other damage to your home. Don’t let the upcoming winter storms cause costly damage to your home!
