Criteria for a new roof
So, what needs to be considered when deciding whether to have a new roof or not?
The following reasons will help you to decide:
- Age of the roof
- Condition of the roof
- Type of roof covering, e.g. clay tiles, pantiles etc
- Roof history, e.g. previous repairs
- Roof buckling between the joists
- Split membrane around the edge
- Expanding roof blisters
- Inadequate waterproofing
- Failing insulation
- Rotting deck boards
If there are signs of movement between the roof and walls due to structural problems or condensation then this is also a sign that a re-roof is needed.
Why should you have a new roof?
There are various reasons why people choose to have a new roof.
The main reason and probably the most important is to prevent any damage caused by a leaking roof when your roof has become irepairable and is no longer protecting your property.
A new roof is also a good investment especially if you are looking to sell your house as this will increase its value.
Plus a new roof is not something that a house buyer wants to spend money on straight after making such a large purchase.
Also a new roof can dramatically improve the look of your home which will also adds to its value.
The important thing to remember is that a roof lasts for a set period of time although this depends upon the type of covering used, the skills and expertise of the contractors and of course, the weather.
Some roofs have a long lifespan and will last for 100 years or more whereas others will deteriorate after 20 years.
