How do you know when it’s time to replace your roof? Well, there are some obvious and not so obvious signs.
Physical damage like splits, tears, and holes in your roof are a sure sign that the roof has been damaged by the weather, physical debris, or wear and tear. Shingles can buckle or fall off, and metal roofing can bend and snap, exposing a gap or hole.
Age is a not so obvious sign that your roof needs to be replaced. On average, a roof needs to be replaced every fifteen years, even if it doesn’t show clear signs of damage. This is a protective measure that will give you ease of mind for the next fifteen years.
Why summer is the best time to replace your roof
- Weather: While the occasional rain does happen every so often in VA, most days in the summer are pretty dry. This allows for experts to quickly come and repair, replace, or quote anything roofing related.
- Cost- Because summer months aren’t considered peak season for roofing, you might find that some roofing companies charge less. It’s the perfect time to hop on that opportunity!
- Efficiency- Because heat can further harm an old or damaged roof, replacing in these hot months will not only ensure your business is protected but it also means you can lower the cost of your AC bill every month.
So, if you’ve been on the fence about replacing your roof, this is your sign to take advantage today. If your business is located in the trans-Atlantic area in Virginia, give Shencorp a call today to get started. We always recommend applying protective coatings to your roof; it will save you time and money in the future. Let us help you help you and your business!
