Jacksonville Roofing Contractor Tips: Does Your Roof Needs Replacement?

by Joie Gahum Digital Marketer

Do you need a new roof? 


A new roof is sometimes a necessity, for some an aesthetic requirement especially if you are planning to sell your property or looking into improving the look of your home. If you are a homeowner, cash trapped but currently torn between a possible roof replacement, how do you proceed?


Roofs will eventually reach the end of their useful life, even without experiencing roof failure and other problems.  However, as old and worn as they are, they require preventive maintenance, and at some point a complete replacement. Delaying a roof replacement can result in a lot of problems down the road. But when is the right time to replace your roofs? Quality Discount Roofing & Contractor, a Jacksonville roofing contractor, shares tips.

Moss


Moss is typically present in areas in the roof that do not get much sunlight. It can get worse in cooler areas and regions with moist climates. On top of being an aesthetic issue, moss can also cause moisture to remain in roof surfaces and with freezing climates can cause severe damage to roof materials. Granules on the top of shingles can get damaged due to this accumulated moisture.


Moss can be brushed off from time to time but does not necessarily prevent them from growing back again. A professional Jacksonville roofing contractor is your last resort to solve moss issues in your roof. They can easily remove moss from its source and diagnose if a roof replacement is due, or if cleaning and repair will be sufficient.

Aged Roofs 20 Years and Up


Materials used in shingles are not as durable as they were before. Thus, the lifespan of roof shingles is not as long as they were before. On top of degrading material properties, there are several other factors that can cause shingles to accelerate faster. Improper ventilation, external forces, and other issues can cause your roofs to age. When they do, they may require replacement.


Evident cracks, excessive leaks, sagging, bald spots, and curled shingles are just some of the issues that indicate that a roof may be due for a replacement. A roofing specialist can help you determine whether your roofs are still worth salvaging or if they are due for replacement. Have them professionally checked to determine the amount of damage and how it can be solved - whether via a roof repair or a complete replacement.

Sagging Ceilings


Sagging ceilings can sometimes go unnoticeable compared to leaks that often lead to staining. It may require the use of a broom or your hand to push the ceiling to be able to determine sagging. If the ceiling feels soft or soggy like cardboard, it is most likely caused by excess moisture from leaks that have been unnoticed. A sagging ceiling can go worse and can damage your home and properties further.


When your ceilings begin to sag, you might want to have your roofs professionally inspected. The water damage and the leaks might have grown beyond repair, thus requiring a repair or for worst-case scenarios a replacement.

Sustained Wind and Hail Damage


Roofs protect property and its inhabitants from outside forces and temperature. High wind speeds especially during a storm can rip shingles off your roofs. If you notice shingles missing from the roof after a strong wind or storm requires replacement. If these pieces are not replaced, it can cause further damage to your roofs. Without the complete protection of these shingles, exposed areas of the roof will be more damaged and will be vulnerable to leaks and other outside forces that may damage the roof.


Small dents caused by hailstones can lead to leaks and bigger damages to your roofs over time. The shingles deteriorate faster if some of the pieces are damaged. One rotten tomato can affect the rest of the produce in a basket. Minor damages can be easily repaired. But for widespread problems, a new roof is the best solution available.
