Why you should get your roof checked!

Friday, August 24th, 2018 by Lindsey Pierce


Your roof is a crucial part to your home; not only for how it looks, but for the safety of your home as well! Making sure you have a safe roof should be the number one priority in your home. Armor Shield Exteriors will work with you the entire time to make sure everything runs smoothly, from the inital inspection to the final steps. We also will work with your insurance companies so you don't have to. 

Now you might be thinking, why is a roof so important? A roof is not only one of the first things somebody will notice, it also will serve as a protective layer to your home. Your roof is that first layer that will protect your home against various different weather conditions such as hail, rain, wind, or snow, so it is important that your roof is up to date. 

When is it time to get your roof checked? There could be a number of different reasons why you should get your roof checked. Some of the more obvious, immediate reasons would be if your roof has a leak. Roof leaks can be common during the winter months when your roof accumulates a lot of snow. If the roof is older, there can be cracks causing the water to seep through to your home. Missing or damaged shingles are another indicator that you should get your roof checked. If you look at your roof and see missing shingles or any discoloration, it's a good idea to get somebody to look at your roof and assess how much damage you may have. And finally, since no roofs last forever, it is inevitable that over time, you will be in need of a roof replacement. If your roof is more than 25 years old, it may be time to call a professional to get your roof looked at.
