A roof consists of more than just shingles. When you replace a roof it is best to consider all the materials to get the best roof performance possible. Contact MarKen!
When moisture in the attic pushes nails out of place, this loosens the shingles. When this happens the shingles’ performance is affected and the roof is exposed to the weather, which causes leaks and moisture damage.
Bacteria from the algae slowly deteriorate the shingles, especially low-cost shingles. Any roof can have algae growth but cool roofs are more susceptible to this.
Roof shingles are made with tiny granules and when these get loose or fall off it impacts the integrity of the shingle and hurts its performance. You can check for this by looking for fragments of the granules in the gutter and system.
Poor quality workmanship leads to shingles that become loose and fall off. Shingles can be blown away in the wind or become loose. Missing shingles allows water into the home.
This is a big problem. Mold can develop in areas around the rafters and the plywood on the underside of the roof. Removing the mold is a significant expense but is absolutely necessary to do as soon as possible.
A new high quality roof is a great investment in your home. It is estimated that a new roof can add $14,000 to $20,000 to a home’s value. Add the extra curb appeal you get with a new roof and now you’re able to see why replacing the roof should be a higher priority on the list of projects for your home.
If your roof is old and underperforming, roof replacement can help lower energy bills. It’s ideal that the attic remains close to the outside temperature, but overheating during the summer is a sign of inadequate ventilation. This can directly cause the HVAC to work in overdrive. A new roof lowers energy bills with ventilation and sound materials that prevent excess drafts and water leaks.
