A new roof can be costly, but it's best to be prepared ahead of time and plan on getting a new roof, rather than be in need of a new roof in an emergency situation. If you aren't sure if you should invest in a new roof, or if you should just wait it out, there are a few signs that would indicate that you should get a new roof now rather than do it later. Read on for a few signs to watch out for.
1. You've Had To Make Repairs
If you've had to make repairs to your roof or have had any repairs done to your roof, you should think about having your roof replaced. If you've already started needing repairs done, your roof isn't going to be as protective as it should be, and you could end up in an awful situation if your roof doesn't hold up as it should. If you've needed repairs, it's time to consider having it replaced. Very minor repairs are one thing, but if you've had a few major repairs, it's time.
2. You're Planning On Selling Your Home
If you're planning on selling your house soon, you should consider replacing the roof. A new roof is a good selling point when you go to put your house on the market. It may also help get your home sold faster if you have a new roof installed. A new roof may be costly, but if it helps to sell your house quickly, it may be worth the extra cost to you. A potential buyer may not want to invest in a house that needs a new roof, so having one already put on your home may help make it more appealing.
3. Your Roof Is Showing Major Wear
If you have major wear to your roof, even if you haven't had repairs done to it, you should consider having it replaced rather than repaired. Major wear such as worn down shingles where your shingles appear shiny, or your shingles look like they are warped, or even if you have missing shingles, you should consider having your roof replaced rather than being repaired.
If you're considering having a new roof put on your home, but you aren't sure if it's worth the investment, watch for the signs that indicate it's time for a replacement. Call a roofing contractor to inspect your roof to see if your roof should be repaired or replaced.
