There are many unfortunate signs that your roofing system is not performing at its fullest. An obvious leak can mean cracks have been working against your home's weatherproofing for quite a long while, and it is certainly time for roof replacement. But there should be more subtle clues before a full-on roof leak is very prevalent. Paint chipping, water marks, unexplainable moisture during heavy downpours are all signs. If this rapid deterioration signs continue, then you will find exponentially problematic troubles on your hands, such as foundational faltering and dangerous mold. The longer your roof goes unfixed, the more you risk losing your home and your health.
Some of the challenges that lead to roof replacement:
- Extreme sunshine
- Heavy, subtropical downpours
- Hurricane-forced winds
- Frigid winter temperatures
If your roof undergoes just one tropical storm, it can sustain what many homes go through over a period of years in just a few hours. It's just a reality when we choose to live on the coastline of the beautiful gulf. If you think roof replacement reasonably fits your sights, we know how to best manage your project. Imagine a day in the life of your roof: withstanding simmering temperatures approaching the triple digits, with humidity levels not far behind. This continues for several hours, and then thunderstorm clouds darken the sky. Quite dramatically, your roof upholds integrity as cold rain from thousands of feet in the sky slams down. Then, something peculiar happens: little ice balls start to dance tiny explosions on the shingles.
Hail is not an everyday occurrence; however, it can be extraordinarily costly when it does happen. According to the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, hail is responsible for more than an average of $1.6 billion worth of destruction per year in the United States for homeowners. That large figure, though, is only what the alliance knows about. Many residents never understand that hail had penetrated their shingles and assumed a roof leak was created some other way. Hail falls from 10,000 to 20,000 feet above your roof, and large hail ranges in size from golf balls to softballs. If you are not sure that your roof experienced hail, checking the drainage from your gutters after a storm has safely passed is an easy and effective way.
