At Punum Roofing of Houston, Inc., we understand that your roof is a big investment. A roof is so much more than just shingles – as part of a larger system, it protects you, your family and your belongings from the elements. Punum Roofing of Houston, Inc. will install a roof replacement using high-quality roofing brands such as Owens Corning and GAF to ensure that your roof lasts as long as possible.
When Is It Time to Replace My Roof?
There are multiple indications that your roof needs to be replaced. Some of the most common signs include:
- Shingle Damage. Shingles are an essential part of your roofing system. When shingles become curled at the edges, cracked or begin to buckle, it may be time to have your roof replaced. Missing shingles are also a big sign that replacement is necessary.
- Shingle Staining. Dark stains on your roof can be an indication of algae growing on your roof. Moss growth, mildew and mold on your shingles may also indicate damage.
- Age. Most roofs are designed to last 20-25 years. If your roof is two decades old, we recommend that you consider a roof replacement.
- Missing Granules. The granules on your shingles are designed to protect your roof. When you start to see granules falling off into your gutter, it may be time to replace.
- Interior Damage. If your roof is leaking, you may see damage to your attic, ceiling or walls. Sometimes we also see blistering or peeling paint on the exterior of your house, also caused by leaking.
- Rising Energy Costs. If you notice that your energy bills are going up, your roof may not be well-insulated. Punum Roofing of Houston, Inc. can install an energy-efficient roof to reduce these costs.
- Roof Valleys. If unrepaired, rain, hail and other precipitation can flow through the valleys of your roof. If you notice damage in this area, we recommend a replacement roof.
- Chimney Flashing. It is best for chimney flashing to be made of metal flashing rather than tar or cement. If you have cement or tar, we will recommend that you replace your roof.
