How to Know When You Need a New Roof - Part 2

How to Keep Your Roof in Great Shape by EZ Roofing Systems Last month, we shared that roof replacement is often necessary because of wear and tear. Things like age, UV damage, granular loss, and structural issues are inevitable, and will eventually require a new roof. These signs usually occur over time, and give you a chance to make a well-thought-out decision about your new roof, and the team who will oversee the job.

Sometimes though, the need for a roof replacement comes suddenly or is necessitated by circumstances that are out of your hands. For example: 

You face severe weather and your roof is damaged. 

 Florida is no stranger to severe weather. Hurricanes are an annual occurrence, and while they vary in strength, they are always a risk to your roof. Strong winds can lift shingles, and flying debris can cause major structural damage. Even if the winds aren't severe, a heavy round of hail can leave you with damaged shingles, roof vents, flashing, gutters, and more. 

After any major storm, it's worth going outside to take a peek at your roof and make sure all is well. If you can't get a good look, call in the pros and invest in a thorough inspection. It's best to catch any issues early before they become BIG problems! 

All of your neighbors have recently replaced their roofs.

In an area where HOA neighborhoods are popular, roofing standards are the norm. Many neighborhoods have a set color palette to choose from, and homeowners are required to stay within that range. Over time though, color trends can change, and if your neighborhood's committees have decided to modernize, it might be time to consider opting for a new roof. 

This is especially important if your roof is looking worn or streaked. You don't want your house standing out from the crowd for all the  wrong  reasons. EZ Roofing Systems can make sure your new roof is the star of the HOA. 

Your energy bills are creeping up.

Manufactures of modern roofing materials are making energy efficiency a top priority. If your roof is in the latter part of its lifespan, you might notice that your energy efficiency has actually decreased over time, and that means your monthly cooling costs are going up. A new roof will increase efficiency, keeping your home cooler and your energy bills lower. We call that a win-win!
