How To Know When Your Porch Needs A New Roof:
The roof on your porch can get old, worn, and damaged just like any other part of your home’s roof. Factors like time and weather can greatly influence how often repairs and replacements are needed. But what exactly should you look for when deciding whether or not to replace the roof on your porch?
One key consideration when deciding whether or not it’s time to replace the roof on your porch is the age of the roof. For a typical asphalt roof, the lifespan is about 20 years, and this applies to the roof on your porch as well. Once the roof has aged to about 15 or 20 years, it is time to think about getting it replaced.
Take a look at the shingles. If you spot shingles that are missing granules, are dried out, are cracked or curled, or are missing altogether, you should really evaluate replacing the roof. Damaged shingles greatly impact your roof’s ability to protect what is underneath, which can lead to structural damage and thousands of dollars in repairs.
If you spot leaks in your home or underneath your porch, you should think about replacing your roof. Take a look around your attic on a sunny day. If you can see light shining through the roof, you can bet that water will leak through as well. Have a professional come inspect your roof and home to find out the best course of action for you to take.
