How Do I Know When My Asphalt or Wood Roof Needs Replacing?

luxury roof from davinciMany home and business owners that have asphalt or wood roofs, like to upgrade their roof with a luxury roof from DaVinci.

There are several visual clues, which indicate that your roof needs to be replaced with an eco friendly roof such as DaVinci. You can always look for signs of damage to your roof and replace it, while there is only minimum damage. This will help you save time and money.

If you are not proactive and allow the roof to deteriorate further it could lead to substantial damage and cost a lot of money.

Even on roofs that are maintained regularly, you will find some shingles missing, which can be replaced easily. But if a great part of the roof is damaged beyond normal repair, the entire roof has to be replaced.

Asphalt shingles are normally straight and do not curve at the lower edges. If you find the lower edges curling, it is time for replacement. If your home or business has a wooden roof, look for signs of cracking or chipping and if these are present, then it's time.

You can also check the asphalt shingles after adverse weather conditions, like heavy rains or storms. The sediment on the shingles tends to loosen and fall on the ground. If you observe the ground after a storm, you'll notice these sediments and this is an indication that the roof has reached the end of its life.

An internal leak due to a damaged roof is a sure indicator that the roof needs to be replaced.  Of course, you'll want to replace the roof before the leaks spreads to the entire house.
