Do you need to redo your roof? Are you hesitant to embark on this important work? The roof is a priority when renovating because it is both the umbrella and the sunshade of your home. The roof protects you from the weather and keeps the heat or cold depending on the season inside. It preserves the frame, the framework of the house so that it is not damaged by humidity.

His worst enemy? The weather! Certain elements of the roof deteriorate, such as the tiles, the fascia boards, the gutters... and in the event of infiltration, the frame, the walls, in short, the whole house is affected! So, without waiting, go for a roofing repair thousand oaks service!

Why is it important to redo your roof?

It all depends primarily on your situation and the condition of your roof. If it has already suffered damage or infiltration, repairing it is not enough. Several symptoms of degradation are recognizable:

  • The appearance of pollution spots;
  • The appearance of mosses, lichens, and fungi, which retain water and damage the tiles by making them porous in the long term;
  • the appearance of microcracks, favoring water infiltration;
  • Broken, sagging tiles.

If you encounter one or more of these cases, it will be necessary to determine the extent of the damage in order to undertake repairs of certain elements of the roof, curative treatments, or the complete renovation of the roof covering.

Changing your roof is also an opportunity to improve the aesthetics of your home, give it more character, and increase its value in the event of resale. It is also an opportunity to achieve better thermal insulation for its habitat.

When should you change your roof?

Tiles can become porous over the years, especially if the roof is not treated or cleaned regularly. It is therefore recommended to change them if this happens, in order to avoid a cascade of problems which would lead to much more important work, such as water leaks.

Whether or not to change the roof covering also, and above all, depends on the age of the roof. Thus, a roof over 20, 30, or 40 years old will require more precautions, checks, and treatments in order to keep it in good condition for as long as possible.
