If you are trying to figure out if you need a new roof, the best place to start is in the attic space. That is the easiest place for you to see if there are any indications of water leaks or damages. If you have even the smallest feeling that you need a new roof, do not hesitate to call Blue Rain Roofing and Restoration at (816) 358-7663. We are operating in Lee’s Summit, MO.
Do You Need a New Roof?
Always have your roof inspected after severe storms to ensure that the integrity of your roof has not been damaged. If you notice any buckling, cracked, or even broken shingles on your roof, you will need to have repairs made immediately. During our inspection, we check the gutters and downspouts for shingle granules, which is a clear indication that a roof is nearing the end of its lifespan and it is time to get it replaced. The flashing that is around the vents, skylights, and chimneys is there to protect the roof’s seams from rain penetration as well as other weather conditions. Making sure there are no splits or cracks in the flashing will keep you from having leaks in the future. In older buildings, roof cement or tar was commonly used for flashing, we use metal flashing systems now because they are better due to their durability. We recommend replacing the old flashing with new flashing only when it starts to deteriorate.
If your roof is drooping and sagging, it is time to replace it before it does more damage to the structure of your property. It is important to have your roof thoroughly inspected because the lowest points of your roof will show signs of trapped moisture or rotting boards before any other point on your roof. Moss can be an eyesore on your roof, but even worse, the presence of moss (and fungi like mold and spores) on a roof indicates that there is moisture that is not being relieved by your roof. We will use a stiff brush to remove the moss growth from your roof’s shady areas, and then check to see if there are any underlying issues that need to be fixed right away. Broken shingles can be easily rectified with a few repairs. With correct installation and if it is less than 20 years old, your roof can be restored instead of needing to be a full tear-off and replacement job.
