Potential Signs That Your Roof Needs Replaced

It’s not a project you necessarily want to take on, but a new roof can give you peace of mind. Once this is installed, you can rest easy knowing that your home is protected from the elements.

Of course, you don’t want to jump the gun, as a repair may be all you need. Here are some potential signs that your roof needs replaced:

·      Missing shingles: There are times when you can simply replace missing shingles with new ones. There are also times when this is a sign of a more serious issue. You must get to the bottom of the problem once and for all.

·      Cracked shingles: When your shingles begin to crack, it’s often a sign of old age. If you wait too long, they’ll deteriorate to the point of moisture damaging your home.

·      Bald spots: As granules begin to wear away, bald spots will appear on your shingles. It may not be visible to you, but it’s something that a roofing contractor can quickly pinpoint.

Finally, if your roof is more than 20 years old, there’s a good chance that your shingles are reaching the end of their lifespan.

If you have reason to believe your roof needs replaced, don’t wait to learn more. Consult with a roofing contractor, ask questions, and make an informed decision as to what you should do next.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"
