Your roof is leaking again. Is it time to call the roofing company for another repair, or do you need to consider Fountain Hills re-roofing? If you are due for a new roof, getting another repair is only going to slap a band aid on the problem. You may have solved the immediate problem, but you will be looking at a very short timeline for another repair.

So how do you know if this is just another repair or if it’s time for a new roof installation? Here are a few signs to let you know it’s time for replacement:

Bald Spots

Bald spots don’t look good on a head, and they don’t look good on your roof. They also exposure your home to serious water damage that can require costly repairs inside and out.

Bald spots are also typically a sign that your roof is starting to fail. The shingles or tiles may be missing, or granules, glue or underlayment may be starting to erode. Your roofer in Fountain Hills can inspect the damage and let you know if you just need a repair or if the problem is a sign that your roof is in need of replacement.

Curling and Buckling Shingles

Shingles start to curl and buckle over time, creating cracks and exposed underlayment and leading to roof damage. Sometimes, a few shingles may curl or buckle because of water damage or extreme heat, especially common in Arizona. However, most often, curling and buckling shingles are a sign that you need a new Fountain Hills roof installation.

Again, it’s important that you call a roofing company and work with an experienced contractor to get to the bottom of the problem. You may be able to make a simple fix, but you don’t want to make the wrong decision or you’ll spend a lot of money you didn’t have to spend.

Worn Flashing

The flashing around chimneys, vents and other intersections with the roof is likely to fail before other roofing materials. When this happens, water can spread throughout the roof, damaging the shingles, underlayment, decking and other materials.

Old or worn flashing may be able to be replaced, but again, it may also be a sign that you need a new roof. The best way to know for sure is to work with an experienced roofing company that can fully evaluate your roof and let you know what can be fixed and what can’t.
