Signs You Need Residential Roof Replacement In Gig Harbor, WA

The weather in the Pacific Northwest can be particularly hard on shingles, tile, slate, and metal roofs and even on traditional wooden shakes.

What to Consider

All types of roofing materials have a life cycle. The life cycle for composite shingles, metal roofs, or other types of roofs depends on the quality of the material as well as the installation process. Exposure to rain, winds, UV light from the sun and the freezing weather conditions in the winter causes damage to the roof on your home, which will lead to the need for a roof replacement.

Signs of problems with a roof including missing or curled shingles, shingles or roofing material that lifts or twists, leaks in the home, and indications of water damage in the attic. In addition, pieces of granular material from composite shingles in rainwater from the roof is a sure sign your home needs a roof replacement.

How Can A Homeowner Recognize When A Roof System Has Problems?

Especially if you have recently experienced high winds, heavy storms, or other hazardous conditions, it is time to inspect your roof. Start on the outside by checking the shingles. Be sure to also check the roof vents, roof flashing, and exhaust caps for any signs of damage. Keep an eye out for any split seams or leaks, which could be an indication of hidden water damage.

Next, look for any damage to the windows. If the windows are damaged, it is likely that the roof is also damaged. Pay close attention not only to shattered windows, but also to pits, holes, damaged woods, and any cracks.

If granules are falling off of the roof in large quantities, then it is a good indication that you have roof damage. Mineral deposits or collections of granules in the driveway, downspouts, and gutters could be evidence of further damage.
