After a certain period of use, every roof requires replacement or at least repair by a roofer experienced in roofing Topeka KS homes. The condition of the roof has a major impact on the safety of people and the building itself, therefore all problems must be fixed. If the roof does not meet all the safety requirements, it must be replaced altogether.
Here are some signs that can serve as indications that your roof needs to be repaired or replaced:
- Check the attic and the inside of your home to see if your roof is leaking. Also, if visible mold spots appear on the ceiling and walls, it is clear that the roof is not in good shape and requires at least some repairs.
- In the case of a tile roof, examine it to see if there are broken or missing tiles (which may have been ripped off or destroyed by storms). Also, check if there are deformed and deeply cracked tiles. If you find only a few damaged tiles, they can be easily replaced. Conversely, if the roof is damaged in a large area or is old, replacing the entire system is probably the best decision.
- High thermal energy bills and a low degree of comfort can be both signs that the roof needs repair work, but most likely they indicate that the roof or even the entire building needs additional insulation.
