Who needs a Roof Replacement?
There is a wide variety of reasons that a client would need or request a roof replacement. Here are a few that may help you to make your decision easier:
Age of Roof
Roofing materials do in fact have a maximum lifespan, so depending on the type of roofing system your home has, you may need to invest in a roof replacement to ensure your roofing materials do not fail due to age.
If you experience a major storm, it can cause a tremendous amount of damage to your home’s roof. It is very important to have an experienced roofer come out and perform a full inspection on your roof after every major storm event. The event can cause minor issues or major failures which would need to be addressed immediately before it exposes your interior structure to further damage.
Trying to Increase the Value of your Home
Trying to sell your home? You can greatly increase the selling price of your home by having a new roof installed. A new roof would not only add to the aesthetics of the house but would provide a great selling point to any potential buyers as they would have a new roof under warranty. The new roof would allow the potential buyers to sleep easy after their purchase, since they would know that their roof should be issue free for some time to come.
If you are able to see sections of your roof sagging or if you are brave enough to venture out onto your roof and feel any spongy sections, it would be a good idea to have an inspection done. Sagging can be a sure sign of leaks breaking through the outer barrier of the roofing system and causing unseen damage to the interior structure. Correcting this issue right away can likely save you money in the end.
Signs of Roof Repair
Though it is possible to make repairs to most of the next items mentioned, if these items should expand in numbers, it may reach the point where it is best to replace the entire system versus making repairs. Again, our experienced roofers are happy to come out and perform a full inspection and then discuss what options work best to protect your home and your budget.
- Missing shingles
- Broken or torn shingles
- Curled shingles
- Heavy growth of mold/moss on the surface
- Deteriorating shingles that have lost their granules
- Leaks in multiple places on your roof
Does Insurance Pay for Roof Replacement?
Honestly, there is no one size fits all answer to this question. Each project would need to consider the type of insurance coverage as well as how the damage to the roof was incurred. Most insurance policies will cover repairs and/or roof replacement if the roof in question was damaged by hail or wind. Normal wear and tear or failure to properly maintain your roof will likely not be covered under most insurance policies. Our advice is to have one of our experienced roofers come out to perform a full inspection on the roof and then determine if you should file a claim with your insurance company.
One fun fact to note about having your roof replaced is that the new roof not only protects your home and gives you peace of mind, but it can also help you save money with your insurance company. Many roofing materials qualify for an insurance reduction due to the impact resistance rating of the product. The rating is managed by the Texas Department of Insurance and the designation is a UL 2218 Class 1,2,3 or 4 Rating. Class 4 is the highest impact rating and entitles the homeowner to the largest discount. Insurance companies vary in the amount they allow but the maximum allowed for a UL 2218 Class 4 roof is a 35% discount.
