Get prepared for the Colorado winter before the temperatures drop and the snow starts to fall with a new roof installation. Roofs need replacement for a variety of reasons, including hail or wind damage, age and poor initial installation. Whatever the reason, the best way to prevent additional damage and protect your home’s value is with a new roof. 

At SKKYGUARD Roofing, we offer detailed roof inspections to determine the condition of your roof and the best action to take to repair or replace the roof. We’re dedicated to treating our customers with respect and establishing long-term relationships. This means, we’re always honest about the condition of your roof. We want to help you find the best solution for your home.

How to Know If It’s Time to Replace the Roof?

Cracked Shingles

Cracked shingles do not always require a new roof. For roofs with only a few cracked shingles, a roof repair could be the best option. Wind damage often causes roof shingles to crack, and Colorado experiences brutal wind throughout the year. Over time, the wind exposure leads to roof damage. When you see cracked shingles throughout your roof, that’s a sign that you may soon benefit from a new roof installation. 

Roofs Older than 25 Years

Thankfully, roofs last a long time unless they experience harsh weather damage. Most roofs last between 20 and 30 years. However, if your roof is approaching the 25-year mark, it’s time to schedule a roof inspection. Don’t wait until your roof fails to invest in replacement. Especially if you’re looking to sell your home, a new roof helps add curb appeal and value, both of which make selling a home easier. 

Hail Damage

Colorado experiences hail storms, some worse than others. Depending on the severity of the storm, you may need roof repairs or replacement. The only real way to know the condition of your roof after a hail storm is with a roof inspection. Some roof damage occurs naturally and may look like hail damage when it’s not. However, most hail doesn’t have smooth edges. The force, shape and size of the hail can compromise the integrity of your roof and may require a full roof replacement. 

Water Leaks

Water leaks inside your home are a huge sign of a roof problem. Isolated leaks in one spot that you address quickly, may only require a repair to fix the problem. But, if you have leaks throughout your home or if your roof is older, a new roof may be the best solution. Water leaks are serious and can lead to even more damage to your home, not to mention health issues from mold and mildew growth. Take roof leaks seriously and act quickly.
