Assessing Roof Damage: When Do You Really Need Roof Replacement?

Blog |August 17th, 2018

If you live somewhere where the elements may be brutal or if you simply have an ageing and decrepit roof, you might need to ask yourself this question: when should I have my roof replaced? Your roof is, without a doubt, the most important aspect of your entire property because it is what makes your building, well, a building. Replacing a roof can be a stressful endeavour without the proper help by your side. Before we even think about having our roof replaced, we need to make sure that we know when the ideal time is. Today, we are going to go over the key factors that should sway you into replacing your old metal roof.

When Should I Replace My Roof?

Here at Coast to City Roofing, we specialise in offering our customers professional metal roofing at an affordable price. Metal roofing has been gaining popularity over the years and more and more types of buildings are starting to rely on the material. With metal roofing, there is this odd insistence that you never have to service, maintain or replace your roof. This just isn’t the case, despite the fact that metal roofing is incredibly durable and long-lasting, you still might have to have it replaced. There are key signs that you need to pay attention to so that you can have your metal roof replaced at the right moment. Let’s discuss them now.

1) When damage is extensive and spread out. 

With metal roofing, just like regular roofing, when potential cracks or rust start to spiral out of control, you might need to consider a full roof replacement. When your problems are localised, you can get away with a simple repair. When the cracks or rust cover an expansive section of the roof, a replacement is a way to go.

2) When you have leaks spread throughout your roof.

Roofs tend to have leaks every once in awhile. For the most part, a single leak or a couple of small leaks aren’t going to be cause for concern. However, when you have leaks all across your roof then you have reason to consider replacing the entire roof.

3) When extensive trauma impacts your roof.

Finally, there are going to be weather elements that totally destroy sections of your roof. When this happens, you probably need to have the entire roof replaced.
