The roof is one of the most important elements of a house. It protects the residents for the elements, it keeps the home safe during storms, and its appearance can add to the curb appeal of the overall appearance of their home. While those features are important, many homeowners do not realize how functional their roof actually is to the well-being of their house.

When a roof is in disrepair, not only can leaks affect the inside of the home, but gutters and downspouts are not as functional. What’s more, when the roof is not properly airtight, costly energy can be lost. To avoid these situations, it is important to keep the roof in good repair. It is also recommended that you replace your roof when the time comes.

Signs You Need A New Roof

At some point, a homeowner is going to consider the possibility of replacing their current roof. A leaky, drafty, and overall damaged roof can cause many problems that extend beyond the common dripping ceiling. Recognizing the signs that it needs to be replaced can save the homeowner a considerable amount of money.

Although a new roof installation can be a big decision, taking preemptive measures will ensure the well being of the home. Take a look at these signs that indicate the roof needs to be replaced:

  • Overall Condition: Issues such as curling shingles, missing shingles, broken slates, or cracked material are all indicators that the roof is failing. Also, any bowing, dips, or valley’s can point to a structural problem. Also, mold and moss is another problem to be concerned about.
  • Chimney: The flashing around the chimney, which is typically the cement or rubber material where the roof and chimney meet, can become cracked and broken. This will cause an issue with leaks and energy costs. This also goes for the flashing around any skylights or vents, as well.
  • Bounce: If the roof is safely accessible, you can check the bounce of the roof. If it feels spongy or has any give, you should have an inspection done right away.
  • Old Age: Even if there are no outward signs of damage, a roof that is at the end of its lifespan will eventually fail. Unfortunately, when the material is past its prime, it can go unexpectedly. A typical shingle roof lasts for 20 to 25 years. Slate or terracotta roofing can last longer. If you are not the original owner of the home, you will want to also consider the care the roof was given.

Not all roof damage requires a new roof. That being said, repairs should be done immediately to extend the lifespan of the material. Don’t wait for an emergency situation, and give us a call at the first signs of trouble.

How To Choose Your New Roof Material

Once the decision to replace the roof has been made, the material selection is next. This can be a tough decision if the homeowner does not know the benefits and drawbacks of the different substrates that can be used.

Here is a list of the most common roof materials that we provide:

  • Metal: Metal roofing can come in several different types including aluminum, steel, copper, and lead. This is a durable roofing material that helps keep the home cool, though it can be somewhat more expensive than other types.
  • Tile & Clay: Tile roofing is a popular style for aesthetic reasons. It adds a certain ambiance to the appearance of the home. Tile is also durable, heavy, and it is more costly to install.
  • Shingles: Shingles are typically made of asphalt. It is the most cost-effective option, and the most common. This material is durable and comes in two different styles; standard shingles and laminated shingles.
  • Wood: Wood is the oldest type of roof material. Roofing can be made out of several different types of wood, and it is a durable material, but it can require more maintenance. Also, wooden roofs are prohibited in some areas due to fire laws.

The choice of material is not only based on personal preference. The location, the style of home, budget, and local regulations can also play a role. Have a question about one of the roofing materials above? Speak with one of our knowledgeable staff members today!

Installation Process

The roofing installation process can be the biggest deterrent to homeowners when they are contemplating a replacement. The time, noise, inconvenience, are all a drawback. When working with the right team, however, all of this can be avoided. The installation process can be done with minimal disruption to your life.

The first step in the process is planning. A detailed and meticulous plan is created between the contractor and homeowner, so everyone is on the same page. Once the work has commenced, the home, lawn, gardens, and other personal property is made safe so there will be zero damage or disruption.

Next, the current roof is removed in its entirety, so the wood and supports can be examined to ensure they are in excellent condition for the new installation. Once we are positive the foundation is dry and secure, the new roof will be installed. We use all the same manufacturer components when installing new materials.

Once your new roof is in place, we will make sure the home and property are left exactly the way it was when we arrived. You will also be left with any tips for future repairs, a maintenance recommendation, and a warranty that will ensure you are protected. At Envision Roofing, we make a roof installation simple and convenient.
