Freeman Roofing Services
There are many reasons why people need roof repair. The most common reason is because of weather damage. Storms can wreak havoc on your roof, causing shingles to blow off or become broken. High winds can also cause tree limbs to fall on your roof, causing damage, leaving you feeling less safe and protected.
Another common reason for roof repair is because of wear and tear. Over time, your roof will begin to show signs of wear, such as cracks or missing shingles, which can cause leaks. It’s important to repair these issues as soon as possible to keep your home dry and prevent further damage.
If you’re unsure whether you need roof repair or replacement, it’s always best to consult with an experienced roof repair professional at Freeman Roofing. They will be able to assess the damage and recommend the best course of action.
When Should I Replace My Roof?
As a rule of thumb, you should replace your roof every 20 to 25 years. However, there are a number of factors that can influence how often you need to replace your roof, including the type of roof you have, the climate you live in, and the amount of maintenance you perform.
If you live in an area of California with a lot of inclement weather, you may need to replace your roof more often. For example, if you live in an area that gets snow, your roof will be subject to more wear and tear and may need to be replaced sooner. Similarly, if you live in an area with severe weather conditions, such as wind or extreme heat, your roof may not last as long as it would in a more moderate climate.
The type of roof you have will also affect how often you need to replace it. For example, asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing material and have an average lifespan of 20 to 25 years. However, concrete roofs are long-lasting and can hold up to the elements for up to 50 years, while well-installed tile roofs can last up to 100 years. If you’re unsure what type of roof is best for your home, contact us one of our roofing experts can help you make the best decision.
What Choices Do I Have When Replacing a Roof?
As a homeowner, you have many roofing options. The most common roofing materials we use are asphalt, wood shake, concrete, and clay tile.
Here’s a little background information on each type of roofing material:
Asphalt shingles: These are the most popular roofing choice because they are economical and easy to install. They offer a variety of benefits, including durability, energy efficiency, and low maintenance.
Wood shingles: These are also popular because they add envious beauty to your home. Wood shingles offer a number of benefits over other roofing materials. They are attractive and add character to your home. Wood shingles are also a sustainable roofing option as they are made from a renewable resource.
Concrete tiles: Concrete tiles are made from natural materials, so they are environmentally friendly. They are also very durable, so you won’t have to replace them as often as other roofing materials. They are low maintenance, so you won’t have to spend as much time and money keeping them in good condition.
Clay tiles: Durability, beauty, and energy efficiency are just a few of the advantages of clay tile roofs. Clay tile roofs can last for decades with proper maintenance. They are also resistant to fire, insects, and rot, making them a very safe investment. Clay tiles come in a variety of colors and beautiful styles to complement any home or business.
Energy efficiency is another great benefit of all these materials. At Freeman Roofing, we use only the best roofing materials when repairing or replacing roofs, helping to keep homes and businesses cooler in the summer months. This can lead to lower energy bills and a more comfortable indoor temperature.
Does Your Roof Need Replacing or Just Repair?
The lifespan of a roof depends on the materials used. For example, shingles last about 20 years while tile roofs can last up to 100 years. If your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, it may be time to start thinking about replacing it. But how do you know if your roof needs replacing or if it just needs repair?
There are a few telltale signs that your roof may need to be replaced, such as:
- Shingles that are cracked, curled, or missing
- Excessive moss or algae growth
- Leaks or water damage
- Daylight visible through the roof
If your roof is showing any of these signs, it’s time to call us out to take a look. We will be able to assess the damage and recommend the best course of action.
In some cases, your roof may just need cleaning and repair rather than replacement. For example, if only a few shingles are damaged, it may be possible to replace those shingles without needing to replace the entire roof. Or, if there is water damage, we may be able to repair the affected area without needing to replace the entire roof.
The bottom line is that it’s important to have our expert roofers assess your roof if you think it may need to be replaced. They will be able to determine if replacement or repair is the best option for you.
