Reasons for a New Roof

Reasons for a New Roof in Dupage, Cook and Lake counties

An inspection can help determine if it's the right time for a new roof 

Sealing roof flashing

More than just shingles. When you have new roofing installed, the job can also include new flashing around the chimney or vent pipes.

A roof is your home’s protector. It protects your possessions, you home’s structure, and more. As time passes, unfortunately, a roof will eventually need to be replaced. It is essential to periodically check your roof for any damage, wear and tear so you can proactively take action to replace your roof as soon as possible once you have identified the need. Doing so will prevent potential internal damage to your home.

Pro Home 1 specializes in both roof replacement and new roof installation in Illinois. There are many reasons to install a new roof, which is why our expert roofers will inspect your home's roof and help you decide if roof replacement is necessary and worth the investment.

If you rent out a home, are planning on selling your home, or if your roof is more than 20 years old, Pro Home 1 suggests having your roof inspected to assess any damage and determine if the roof can be repaired or if it's time for a new roof.

It's important to replace your roof at the right time. Waiting too long to replace your roof or installing a new roof before it's necessary could end up costing you. Our roof inspection can help determine whether your home is in need of a new roof or if roofing repairs and maintenance are enough.

How long will a roof last?

There are a number of factors that impact how long your roof might last, including the type of materials used, the number of shingle layers, and the overall age of the home. As roofing contractors in the Chicago suburbs, Pro Home 1 finds that a roof needs replacing after 15 to 20 years on older homes.

Signs indicating that you may need to replace your roof

Assuming all else is well, the age of a roof generally determines if it should be replaced or not. Have your roof inspected once it reaches the 15 year mark, or if you are unsure of its age, to determine if it needs to be replaced.

There are times when a roof needs to be repaired or replaced before its time. It is a good idea to be aware of the several interior and exterior signs that may indicate this need.

Exterior signs include:

  • Bent, cracked or missing flashing
  • Algae growth
  • Stained shingles
  • Loss of granules on shingles
  • Buckling, sagging or curling
  • Missing shingles
  • Cracks
  • Soft or mushy water damaged shingles
  • Rot

Interior signs include:

  • Peeling or cracked paint
  • Water stains on the walls or ceiling
  • Attic water after a heavy rainfall
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Mildew or mold
  • Rot

How can I keep my roof in good condition?

Periodically checking your roof for the signs listed above, ensuring proper attic ventilation, immediately taking care of any leaks, and watching for conditions that can foster moss, mold, mildew or rot is essential to keeping your roof in good shape.

The minute you suspect an issue, contact Pro Home 1 to come out and inspect your roof to determine what actions need to be taken. This step could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. In many cases, if caught early enough, weather damage and leaks can be repaired; but if you wait too long and too much damage is done, then you will have to replace your entire roof.
