California roof repair can be expensive, but it never pays to put it off. This is taking an unnecessary risk as delay can lead to more damage and even more costly repairs. Here at California Roofing Pros, we offer affordable roof services to meet your needs. Instead of waiting, we can get your roof in tip top shape in no time. Here are some signs that it’s definitely time to give us a call.
Your roof isn’t supposed to sag so if you notice that it does, you shouldn’t hesitate to call us for California roof repair. Even if your roof isn’t leaking, sagging can indicate that you might be dealing with a leak soon. It could also mean that you have a structural issue that needs to be repaired before you have a hole in your roof or damage to the frame of your house.
Missing shingles expose your roof to the elements, including sun, wind and moisture, which can lead to more expensive repairs. Fortunately, replacing shingles is fairly easy and affordable, though they may not match the surrounding shingles. If you want a uniform look, you might consider an entire roof replacement so that all of your shingles match. The same is true for cracked shingles.
If you notice that your roof has moss or algae growing on it, you probably have an older roof. In some cases, you can wash this plant growth off, though it may leave your shingles damaged or discolored. Some roofing materials can’t be power washed and may require more specialized care to get rid of the algae or moss. Many newer roofing materials have anti-algae properties so it might be worth getting a new roof to prevent the problem from coming back and causing further problems that you have to deal with.
Granules in the Gutters
If your roof is older, shedding granules indicate that it’s getting worn out and likely needs to be replaced. These granules help protect your roof from the damage of the sun’s rays so when they begin shedding, it means that your roof isn’t as protected as it should be and that it’s probably time to think about getting a new one. Check your gutters for granules often and if you begin to see them collecting there, call us for an inspection.
More than 25 Years Old
The lifespan of the average roof is 20 to 30 years so if yours falls into that category, it’s probably time to call for help. We can inspect your roof and assess whether a roof replacement is in your best interest. Letting it go can lead to leaks and other costly damage so it’s better to take care of things before it gets that far. When your roof reaches the 25 year mark, having it looked at is the best way to go.
