How to know when your porch needs a new roof?

PORCH-ROOFS-FEATURED

Here are three signs your porch roof needs to be replaced:

  • Old Age: Most roofing materials will only last for 15 or 20 years. If your home was built more than two decades ago or if you’re not sure when you last got a roof inspection, contact R Campbell Roofing to check out your structure. They’ll look for problems, assess any damage, and determine whether you need a roof replacement or not. 
  • Problems With Your Shingles: Head outside and take a look at your porch’s roof. See any missing shingles? How about shingles that are buckling up or curling at the edges? Notice shingle granules in your downspouts? These are all signs the integrity of your porch’s roof is compromised.
  • Dips & Valleys: If the roof above your porch has any dips or valleys in it, look out: It may cave in at any time. Chances are, what was once a leak has caused the wood in the structure of your roof to rot, and now it can’t support itself any longer.

Although it’s only a small part of your home, your porch’s roof protects your house from damage. If you need an inspection or require repair or maintenance services, contact us for a free estimate, call Horizon Roofing at (770) 207-0759.
