Signs That Your Roof Needs to be Replaced

There’s no doubt that a roof is a major investment. Think of all the ways it’s vital to your home. It keeps you warm, dry, and safe from the elements. That’s why damage to your roof shouldn’t be ignored when you notice it. Luckily, Ferguson Roofing’s expertise with shingle, metal, and flat roofs is just a phone call away. Before you dial, read on for signs that your roof needs to be replaced.

Shingle Roofs

Most homes have shingles. This type of roofing option needs to be replaced when shingles are curled or cupped on their edges, cracked, or even missing entirely. Age can negatively impact shingles, although most last for about 20 years. Turbulent weather like rain, hail, and ice can also cause unrepairable damage and premature aging.

Ferguson Roofing offers several different shingle types including 3-tab roofing shingles, architectural shingles, specialty shingles, and green solutions. Ask about a 15-year workmanship warranty on all full shingle roof installations.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofing has a higher resistance to the elements and an overall lighter weight, making it a long-lasting solution. As with shingles, a combination of aging and weather will eventually cause these issues like failure at the seams or dents.

Ferguson Roofing offers standing seam, corrugated metal panels, and metal shingles as our metal roofing options. With an extended warranty of 40 to 50 years, metal roofing is a more “permanent” option.

Flat Roofs

For low slope roofs on residential homes, options other than shingles can provide better solutions to keep water out. This type of roofing option needs to be replaced when resealing or patching becomes frequent. There is the possibility that water will collect on flat roofs if the drainage system fails or the roof needs to be pitched with a tapered insulation system.

Ferguson Roofing offers three options for flat roofs: modified bitumen for flat, low-slope roofs and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) or EPDM as a single-ply roofing system. TPO and EPDM in particular offer impressive benefits including a longer lifespan, low maintenance, and longer service warranties.
