5 Signs It’s Time for a Roof Replacement

Jan 04, 2024

Your roof is a crucial component of the overall protection of your home, safeguarding your loved ones and your valuables from the elements. Over time, however, even the sturdiest roofs may wear down, compromising their ability to provide adequate protection. Below, we’ll explore five telltale signs that indicate it might be time for a roof replacement.

1. Your Roof Is Aging

One of the top indicators that it’s time to replace your roof is age. Different roofing materials have varying lifespans, and environmental factors can impact their longevity. Asphalt shingles, for example, typically last 20 to 30 years, while metal roofs may endure for 40 years or more. If your roof is approaching or has surpassed its expected lifespan, it’s wise to consider a replacement to maintain optimal protection for your home.

2. There Is Visible Damage to Your Roof

Visible damage is an obvious red flag that your roof needs attention. Missing or damaged shingles, granule loss, and visible cracks are signs of wear and tear that can compromise your roof’s integrity. Regular roof inspections are essential to identifying these issues early on. At BACK Construction, our professionals can assess the state of your roof and recommend the best course of action to address any visible damage.

3. Persistent Leaks

Roof leaks are more than a mere inconvenience; they can lead to extensive water damage and the growth of harmful mold. If you notice water stains on your ceiling or walls, or if you experience persistent leaks during rainstorms, it’s a clear sign that your roof requires attention. Addressing leaks promptly is crucial to preventing further damage and protecting your home’s structural integrity.

4. High Energy Bills

An inefficient roof can contribute to elevated energy bills. If your heating and cooling costs have been steadily increasing, it may be due to poor insulation caused by a compromised roof. A professional assessment from BACK Construction can help determine whether your roof is affecting your home’s energy efficiency and guide you on the necessary steps to rectify the situation.

5. Sagging or Uneven Roof

A sagging or uneven roof is a serious structural issue that requires immediate attention. It could be a result of water damage, weakened support, or other structural problems. Ignoring a sagging roof can lead to more significant issues over time. If you notice any signs of sagging or unevenness, it’s crucial to consult with roofing professionals promptly.

 They removed some hardy board siding that had been exposed to lots of water and was rotten...Took old out, replaced with new, primed, caulked and painted all in one morning. Schon Holman was magnificent. He knew what he was doing, came dressed suiting the quality of work I expected, did a thorough, perfect job, left site immaculate and was professional in his conversation and demeanor. Would definitely use Schon and BACK again. 
 Today concludes my home updating experience with Back Construction. It is with gratitude and satisfaction I review Shohn and my kitchen transformation. There were many just in time process changes that needed Shohns' expertise and patient consideration. He approached them through an experienced eye and one by one sought a solution , never an excuse. This is a testimony to.his professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks Back Construction for choosing top quality staff. Thank you Shohn for taking care of me like you would your family. 
 Back Construction helped turn my rental property from the ugliest house on the street to one of the best-looking by designing and building a super-custom open gable porch roof to replace an outdated awning. The project was complicated by the need to work with multiple residents and me, the owner, but clear communication from start to finish made the process easier. They were conscientious about my budget without cutting corners on the quality, appearance, or service. 
 I was very pleased with Schon Holman who repaired a faucet incorrectly installed and repaired cabinet damaged by water. Back was quickly responsive to my request and adjusted original estimate when work was done. I would highly recommend Back. 
 Highly recommend Back Construction! They screened in part of our deck and built a pergola. The project went smooth from beginning to end. The sales manager and project manager were easy to work with and took everything into consideration. The work crew were very professional, on time and cleaned up daily. Our screened in porch has become our favorite part of the house! We will definitely be using Back Construction again. 
 I couldn't speak more fondly on my experience with Back Construction. We had the columns on our front porch repaired and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship. Schon Holman and Tom Gebhart were very professional.The Home was built in the 1800s and with the original columns still standing, the team took extra care in the repair and their preservation. They also were able to lift the porch and level out the roof which seemed like quite a task. Im very happy with the outcome. They even gave advice and information on the products they used for future reference. Thank you very much Back Construction. I will be recommending your work to others.
