Many business owners do not become concerned with the state of their facility’s roof until there is a leak or visible damage. However, several red flags can present themselves when it is time for a roof replacement.
Your roof is over 20 years old
Depending on the type of roofing material, a typical roof will last between 20 and 25 years (assuming that it was installed correctly and hasn’t suffered any significant damage). If your building is older than 20 years old and you’re unsure as to how old your current roof is, it may be time for an inspection.
Shingles are curling or missing
What do your shingles look like? If your shingles are curling or buckling, they are likely past their life expectancy. Additionally, if you are missing shingles, it’s time to get some work done.
The chimney is leaking
If your building has a chimney and you are noticing a leak, it is time to call a professional. This is an indication that there might be an issue with the chimney flashing, which seals the connection between the roof and the chimney.
There are shingle granules in the gutters
As roofs age, they tend to lose granules from the shingles. If you look in your gutters to find they have many granules, its likely time to call a roofing contractor in Daytona Beach.
