Roofs are resistant constructions that can endure a lot, but the time when they need to be replaced comes inevitably. While regular inspections and repairs can prolong the lifespan of any roof, the materials used will become aged eventually and they will need to be replaced. Here are some signs that, despite your efforts to preserve the health of your roof, the topmost protection layer on your building is aging:
- Leaks becoming more frequent – if you notice that soon after you fix a leak, a new one appears, you might have to start preparing for replacing your roof. The cause might be aging components that can no longer stay strong when exposed to heavy raining or storms;
- Roof sagging – a major fault of the roof’s supporting structure and an issue that might require roof replacement. In some cases, mild sagging can be repaired by an experienced Fort Collins roofer, so before investing into a new roof, it is a good idea to consult an Fort Collins expert;
- Mold and mildew affecting the walls and the ceilings inside the building – the problem is not always caused by the old roof that allows too much moisture to penetrate the building, but it is a possibility that you should not disregard.
