2 More Warning Signs It’s Time For a Roof Replacement
- Missing shingles – After buckling and curling shingles have had enough, they’ll fall off. Keep in mind, however, shingles don’t need to buckle or curl to fall from the top of your home. Roofs age over time. They age from the amount of sun they see, amount of rain they drain, the amount of snow they support and the amount of wind they resist all of which can lead to missing shingles. If your roof has had plenty of years seeing a variety of elements, it doesn’t come as a surprise that your roof is missing shingles; it’s a sure sign it’s time for a roof replacement.
- Loose chimney flashing – Do you have a chimney? Most homes do here in Charlotte and one concern with chimneys is the flashings around it. Many residential chimneys in the area consist of roof tar or cement. If your chimney is no exception, it may be time for either a roof repair, or complete roof replacement. Why? For long-term care and a water-tight fitting, a metal flashing system would be best.
