If you are looking to get a roof replacement in Maryland or wondering if you need one, Crown Remodeling has answers for you. Roof replacement is warranted in many situations. Here are some good reasons why you might want a roof replacement in Maryland.
Your Roof is Getting Up There in Years
Roofing materials only last a finite number of years, depending on the materials used. If your roof is over the maximum lifespan, it makes sense to get a roof replacement. Of course, waiting until the maximum number of years isn’t necessarily a great idea, either. Remember that weather in and around Baltimore is especially tough on roofs. If your roof is approaching the lifespan indicated below, call Crown Remodeling for a free consultation, before potential problems set in.
- Asphalt Shingles – 15 to 30 years
- Slate Tile – 75- 125 years
- Metal Roofs – undetermined, but up to a lifetime
- Flat Roofs – up to 20 years
Your Roof is Showing Signs of Failure
Many times, roofs show signs of failure before any serious problem occurs. Often, these signs are visible from the street, and a vigilant homeowner may be able to spot signs without climbing up onto the roof. These signs include things like:
- Missing shingles that may have fallen off the roof and into the yard below during high winds.
- Areas of shingle curling, where the edges of some shingles have bent upward
- Heavy discoloration, including a white coating, which may indicate mold growth
- Broken shingles with jagged edges
- Sloping Roof
You Are Planning to Sell Your Home
The roof is one of the largest parts of your home, next to the front facing. When prospective buyers pull up to your house, your roof is one of the first things they will notice. If you are planning to put your home on the market, you should be considering getting a roof replacement in Maryland. If buyers see an old roof that will need to be replaced soon, they may use that as a negotiating tactic against you.
They may also see it as an indicator that you don’t take proper care of your home, and presume that there may be other issues with the property as well. Don’t let there be any doubt about your home before your buyers have even stepped through the front door. Call Crown Remodeling for a free roof replacement consultation.
