Does Your Roof Need Repair or A Replacement?

Your roof is what keeps you and your family safe and protected. The security of your

home is dependent on a sturdy roof that keeps outside elements from entering and

causing devastation to the house. Many factors can affect a roof's durability, and

varying forms of roofing damage call for different solutions. It can be hard to tell the

proper step to take when fixing problems with your roof. We’ve highlighted a few

differences between when a roof needs repair and when it’s time to have it replaced.




Repair

If your home has water stains running across ceilings or walls, it most likely has a leak.

In order to determine how bad of a leak it is, you’ll need to track down where it’s coming

from. The easiest way to do this is to search your home’s attic for stains, black marks or

mold. If this isn’t possible, go outside and look for any hindrances that could penetrate

the roof.


If you have a leaky roof, it’s in your best interest to fix it as soon as possible. Even if it

isn’t severely damaging your home or in need of immediate repair, it should still be

addressed before it leads to further problems or damage.


Minimal wind damage is another factor of your roof that can be cleared up with a repair.

Loose or missing shingles are standard and are easy to fix problems that don’t require

any long term work or replacement. If your home is missing shingles or the material is

loose, call us to repair it.


Replace

Sometimes, the damage caused to a roof is unfixable. This can be because of

inclement weather or deterioration over time. It can be hard to tell when it’s time for roof

replacement, but here are a few things to look out for on your roof.


If you have a shingle roof, you should have it replaced about every 20 years. The edges

of these roofs begin to curl up after time. This is a sign that it’s time to have them

replaced. Another factor that can lead to home damage is limbs dragging across the

roofs. We’re no stranger to rough winds and rain on the Gulf Coast. This inclement

weather can cause limbs and branches from nearby trees to scratch the roof and wear

them down. This can tarnish all roof types, but shingle roofs are the most susceptible to

ruin.


A change in the aesthetics of the outside of your home is another reason to have your

roof replaced. Homes that are going to be remodeled may need a roofing upgrade along

with their new look. If your home's outward appearance is being drastically remodeled,

the roof will likely need to be replaced to accompany the change. Any major

construction work done to the home during remodeling may also call for a roof

replacement as well.


At Custom Construction Services, we want you to feel safe and comfortable in your

home. Leaks, deterioration, weather damage, and loose roofing are all problems that

need to be addressed before further damage is caused, like mold and termite invasion.
