There are several factors to consider when your roof has damage, or you suspect it's leaking. Call us today so we can help!
One of the more telling signs that a roof needs to be replaced is when water damage is apparent. You’ll see brown stains on your ceiling, which are clear proof that your roof isn’t doing its primary job of protecting your home from the elements. A single, small leak is often fixable with a quick repair job, think of it as a “band-aid” but if your roof is letting in water in multiple areas of the home, it is vital that you call us so we can develop a plan of action, when a leak is apparent it's important to take care of it by having a full roof replacement.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
Missing shingles or damaged areas are other indications that you are in need of a roof replacement. You might not notice you’re missing any, maybe you’ll find shingle pieces in your yard or a neighbor might point it out to you. As we know from being Central Ohio homeowners ourselves, snow, hail, heavy rain and stormy weather can do a number on your home or buildings roof. Not only can inclement weather damage the slates and shingles, but it can also leave you with parts of your roof completely missing. For obvious reasons, whenever you notice missing or damaged shingles, it’s time to call a roofing professional.
Granules in your Gutters
Granules are the tiny stones that give the roof its weatherproofing ability, protects against UV rays and gives the shingles their color blend. While it is perfectly normal for some granules to shed over time as your roof ages, having a measurable amount of granules in your gutters or at the base of your downspouts is a possible area of concern. If you notice the granule loss or you have a concern we can provide you with a free consultation and assessment of your roof.
Roof is Aged
Different types of roofing have different lifespans. For example, slate and tile roofing can last beyond 50 years, but chances are you have the popular and more affordable asphalt shingle roofing which typically lasts around 20-25 years. Factor in some damaging storms and high winds, and you may need a roof replacement even sooner...which is very common in Central Ohio. When you’re aware that the warranty of your roof is starting to run out, it’s smart to start thinking about hiring a roof replacement company to take care of it.
At the first signs of any of these roofing issues, give our team of specialists a call right away. We can help you plan for the replacement of your roof by providing an accurate assessment, a time frame for how long the roof will last and options for obtaining financing so you can have a plan. Don’t let the problem get too out of hand! Once a small leak begins if it's not handled quickly, oftentimes the plywood decking begins to hold moisture from the leak and begins to warp & rot. Replacing plywood decking adds thousands of dollars to the roof replacement proposal.

The Difference Between Replacing and Repairing Your Roof
Here at Best Exteriors, Inc., we perform both roof replacements and roof repairs for both flat (commercial roofs) and steep slope residential roofs. These renovations are similar in nature but are quite different operations. Roof repair is performed for small problems like a single leak or a handful of missing shingles. The tasks are fairly simple but necessary, and can be done by one of our technicians in an hour or two with minimal disruption. Roof replacement is different, in that we remove your existing roof and replace it with a new one, to ensure that it’s safe and operating in the way it should be. The primary function of the roof is to shed water and protect the home and the contents inside, when the roof has a leak or damage and is non-functional that is when we recommend you calling us.
This is also where regular inspections become essential. Our experts are available to complete a comprehensive roof inspection to help you decide whether you need a quick roof repair or if you require a full roof replacement. Usually, newer roofs will need a few tweaks & repairs while older roofs that have weathered a few storms are most likely due for a new roof altogether.
If you’re not sure whether your roof needs a repair or a replacement, call us today to schedule a roof inspection with one of our trusted roofers.
