Homeowners have several options when it comes to the shingles you can install. They come in many styles and colors to choose from. This makes your choice of what shingle and style to go with hard. Your home is your biggest investment and you want it to be the best it can be. How can you choose what shingles you should use when you need a new roof installed?

Why You Need a New Roof Installed

Regardless of your current roofing shingles, they’re going to age over time and will likely fail at some point. A fierce storm can hit your roof and rip off your shingles so a replacement is needed sooner. Some potential signs of storm damage include:

  • Hail damage
  • Granules in the downspouts
  • Debris
  • Missing shingles
  • Visible indication of a hole in the roof

However, if your roof is simply giving in to old age (more than 20 years old), you may notice the following:

  • It looks old and worn
  • Cracked shingles
  • Curled shingle edges
  • Dark streaks from algae
  • Moss

Roof Repair Vs Replacement

Our roofing specialists can identify areas in your roof with the potential to cause damage to your home. We make timely repairs, giving your roof a new breath of life. We also repair chimney flashing, fascia, and soffit.

A roof replacement, on the other hand, involves tearing off everything on your roof down to the deck and installing new felt paper and shingles. A roof replacement is ideal for older roofs nearing their lifespans or roofs that have been severely damaged by a storm.
