If your roof is more than 15 years old, it’s time to replace it. If you have a flat roof, check the seams for signs of leakage. You can also use an infrared thermometer to check the temperature of your attic insulation and compare it to the temperature outside. If there’s a significant difference, then you have a leaky roof.
A good rule of thumb is if one area of your roof looks bad, chances are that other areas may need replacing as well. You should expect your roofer like the one at Presidential Roofing Niles Inc. to inspect all areas of the roof, including valleys and chimneys, before giving you an estimate.
No matter what kind of roof you have, one thing is certain: If you haven’t installed your roof, you may want to know how long your roof is expected to last. This is the time to call in a veteran roofer at Presidential Roofing to assess your current roof. He will let you know about what time range it should last without barring a calamity.
