Signs you need a roofing upgrade
New roofs are a pretty serious homeowner undertaking, and you may be tempted to altogether ignore the need to embark on this endeavor. In reality, though, taking care of this issue sooner rather than later is always the easiest option. Fast action tends to involve less work, less interior damage, and an all-round easier life for you. Some signs that you should contact our Orange County roofers as soon as possible include –
- Cracked shingles
- Shingles that curl at the edges
- Roofing that’s 20+ years old
- Dark streaks/damp patches on existing tiles
- Noticeable leaks in your attic
- An ability to see roofing gaps when you’re inside
If you notice any of these at work or home, you must take action to avoid the escalating issues that often accompany such problems.
Understanding your roofing options
Once you’ve accepted that roofing repair or installation is the only way to overcome evident problems, it’s vital that you take the time to understand your roofing options. We have experience with a wide range of roofing materials here at Coastal Handyman, and each of them can bring very different benefits to home and business owners alike. To make sure you get this right, consider some of the options on offer, including –
- Asphalt shingles
The most common roofing option by far, asphalt shingles last for around 20 years and are effective in all conditions. Quality matters a great deal here, but we offer high-standard asphalt shingles without fail.
- Slate roofing
Lasting as many as 100 years, slate roofing tiles are a tempting option for many, but they do tend to come at a cost. Still, when you consider the money you’ll save on the need for replacements, this sturdy option is certainly worth your time. Rubber slate, too, is a viable option for many, again lasting as much as 100 years, and being easy to cut for intricate installation. Installation by trained individuals is vital, but our team can take care of rubber slate for you without worry.
- Metal roofing
Metal roofing is available in both vertical panels and shingles and can last up to 60 years. Its lightweight nature also means that it can be installed over existing roofing. That said, this option can be problematic in rain or hail due to noise and potential for denting.
- Stone-coated steel
This sturdy roofing largely mimics slate and is fantastic for windy or wet regions. It’s also typically warranted for the lifespan of your home.
- Clay and concrete tiles
Clay and concrete tiles can withstand weather extremes, including tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes. On the other end of the scale, they’re also fantastic for warm, dry climates. Perhaps the main downside is that they can break if trodden on or left unsupported.
- Built-up roofing
Layers of asphalt, tar, or adhesive are topped to create this substantial option for flat roofs. Built-up roofing can last between 20-25 years, though it is worth noting that it can be tough to keep clean and pristine due to softening tar in summer months.
- Solar options
Solar panel installation is now a fantastic way to save money at home in sunny areas. Even in locations where standard solar panel installation isn’t allowed, solar roofing tiles integrate seamlessly and offer much the same benefits.
- Green roofing
Green roofs are literally roofs covered with plants. This option can help to improve air quality and insulation, as well as reducing water runoff. The average lifespan for a roof like this is around 40 years with proper drainage, support, and plant care.
Your commercial roof
Quality commercial roofing matters for everything, from health and safety to customer impressions. A leak in your interiors could, after all, put employees at significant risk. Equally, customers may struggle to equate you with a professional image if your roof is littered with slipped tiles. As such, you must keep on top here.
Every one of our commercial roofing contractors knows what it takes to keep your commercial roofing as attractive and secure as possible for many years to come. We’re also on hand to make sure that you never fall shy of health and safety regulations in your area. Whether your roofing has been untouched for years or you’re noticing significant problems, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
