GAF Master Elite Certified Roofing Contractors
Having a sturdy and dependable roof is the only barrier protecting your home from harsh climates or anything falling from the sky. With proper maintenance, your home’s roof can last for many years. Eventually, however, the time will come when you will need to make repairs to prolong its lifespan or determine it’s time to replace the roof altogether. Replacing your roof not only adds protection but can also add up to 40% of perceived curb appeal and add beauty to your home that can translate to added resale value.

Our team is comprised of GAF Master Elite certified roofing contractors — meaning your roofing project will be completed by knowledgeable and dependable professionals using only the highest-quality materials.
Signs Your Roof Needs Repair or Replacement
The signs that your roof is in need of attention can be subtle or obvious. To best find signs of damage, take a look at your roof often, especially after a storm or if it’s getting older. Check inside and outside of your home for the presence of water spots that will warp shingles or exterior finishes or leave unsightly spots inside your home along the ceilings and walls. Also, look at your shingles for any signs of cupping or cracks, absent shingles and shingles with missing granules.
If your roof is nearing the end of its useful lifetime, then repairs will become less efficient and replacement is overall the less expensive and most practical solution. Many types of damage can be repaired, but if the structural integrity of your roof and home is becoming an issue, like a lot of excess moisture entering your home, then the best course of action is a replacement.
