How to understand the health of your Roof?
Because most homeowners don’t examine their roof(the health of Roof) on a regular basis, a roof leak is the first sign that maybe it’s time for a new roof.
A leak due to a small area of damage or a minor flashing problem, in an otherwise sound, young roof, needs the only repair. When the leaks are the result of deterioration due to advanced age, then replacement is needed.
Also, an older roof with clear warning signs of imminent failure requires replacement even if it’s not leaking yet. So it’s important to know the signs of a deteriorated roof covering before the roof leaks begin—whether you are looking at a house you are considering buying, with an eye to catching a big near-term expense for roof replacement, or simply monitoring the condition of a home you own
Some of these signs for the health of your Roof:
Granule Loss – The rock granules that coat the surface of the shingles help to protect them from deterioration from the sun’s UV-light rays. A tell-tale sign of granule loss is when you see piles of the coarse sand-like granules in your gutter or a faint ribbon of granules on the ground under the roof’s drip edge.
Curling – Look up the slope of the roof from the ground, and search for shingle edges that are beginning to curl upward. This is another sign of advanced age.
Loss of Tab Adhesion – If you’re comfortable putting a ladder up to the edge of the roof, try carefully lifting the front edge of a few shingle tabs you can easily reach, a couple of rows back from the edge. T
Deteriorated Flashings – Any roofer will tell you that one of the most problematic areas on a roof system is flashings.
