How to Tell if You Need a New Roof

Roofs are essential for keeping the elements out of your home. Especially when you live in the Pacific Northwest, where we see rainy weather more often than not. With proper maintenance, a roof can last for generations. Here are a few signs that your roof needs to be repaired. If you’re in Edmonds, WA, or the surrounding areas, give Crown Roofing a call. We offer a variety of materials for your new roof, as well as repair and routine maintenance.

How Old Is Your Roof?

What is your roof made of? You could have a roof that lasts between 15 and 100 years depending on its material. Asphalt roll roofing is known to last the shortest amount of time, while slate and cement roofing can usually last 50 to 100 years, depending on how well they are maintained. If your roof appears to be sagging from the outside, it’s a clear sign it is in danger of caving in. Call a roofing expert right away.

Shingle Appearance

Check your shingles. In some cases, you might only need to replace the ones that are damaged or missing. You should replace your roof if most of the shingles are curling, cracked, or showing bald spots. Additionally, you should inspect your gutters and downspouts for shingle granules. This means that the shingles need to be replaced due to disintegration.

Pest Presence in Edmonds

Washington is home to an abundance of wildlife. But when they make their way into your house, you’re at risk of structural damage. Mice and rats prefer to make their homes within walls and insulation. They can be a problem at any time of year, but keep an eye out during fall and winter when they are trying to escape the cold.

While wood is a popular building material, it makes a great meal for termites. Luckily, if you find termite damage early on, it is easy to repair. If you notice birds often perching on your roof, be aware that the acid from bird droppings can corrode your shingles.
