Is it time for a new roof? There are a number of tell-tale signs to let you know that it’s time to replace your existing roof. Here are a few of them from Bobvila.com to help you out:

  • Before you head outside to inspect your roof, it’s actually a good idea to inspect the interior of your home for signs of wear and tear. Head up to your attic to look for cracks, holes, or stains coming from your roof.
  • Whenever you repair or replace your roof, be sure to keep record of it. If you purchased your home from someone else, you can usually still find records of home improvements. Most asphalt shingle roofs will last you 20-25 years, so if your roof is about that old, it’s probably time to replace your roof, even if it’s not showing visible signs of damage.
  • Next, it’s time to head outside to inspect the exterior of your roof. If you see any missing or loose shingles, it’s definitely time to call up your local roofing professionals. They can advise you if it’s better to repair or replace your roof, depending on the extent of the damage.
  • Another sure sign of roofing damage is a drooping or sagging roof. Call Housetop Roofing immediately if you notice this.
  • Stains, streaks, or growing plants on your roof are also signs of roofing damage. Again, this may lead to a simple repair, or it may require a roofing replacement. Just call your local roofing company to figure out your next steps.

With much of NC waiting for snow to fall today, we thought it’d be appropriate to discuss the snow as it relates to your gutters. Snow and ice can strain your gutters, sometimes leading to damage to your gutters. So what can you do to prevent this damage? And, what can you do when this damage does happen?

The best way to prevent damage to your gutters is to regularly clean them. Removing the yard debris from the fall season, such as leaves, pine cones, nuts, etc. before winter hits is always a good practice. With this excess debris removed, your gutters will be better equipped to handle the extra weight from winter’s snow and ice. To have your gutters cleaned, give us a call at Housetop Roofing.

If damage does occur to your gutters this winter, be sure to give us a call as soon as you notice the damage. If it’s still snowy or icy outside, don’t attempt to fix your gutters yourself, as this could lead to accidents and injuries. 

If you know that wintry weather is on its way, you can use calcium chloride on your roof and gutters to help melt the snow and ice. Don’t use the typical rock salt as it can cause damage to your roof. Again, we encourage you to use precaution if you decide to do anything to your roof or gutters. 

If you need help taking care of your gutters this winter, give us a call at Housetop Roofing in Raleigh, NC.
