When to Replace Your Roof
All roofs wear out over time. Knowing the signs that a full or partial replacement is necessary can help you plan accordingly and avoid the expense and hassle that comes with needing emergency repairs. Here are a few things any homeowner with an older roof should be on the lookout for:
- Curling, buckling or missing shingles
- Dips and valleys in the roof itself
- Shingle debris in your gutters or around the home
- Leaking or water damage in your attic
If you notice any of these signs or have any other reason to suspect your roof might be starting to show its age, contact Sunshine Contracting. We’ll perform a complete inspection and give you an honest assessment of how much time your roof has left.
The Replacement Process
A roof replacement is a multi-step process that must be performed by trained professionals. At Sunshine Contracting, we begin every job by removing your old shingling and inspecting the plywood underneath. Any damaged areas are replaced using high-quality CDX or FRT wood.
Then, we apply multiple weatherproofing shields and moisture barriers to prevent the damage from recurring. Custom flashing is installed around roof edges, chimneys and other relevant areas. After caulking is applied, we install a ridge vent to protect your attic from rain, snow and insects. Finally, we are then able to replace your shingles. Our team works from the ground up, ensuring the installation is done according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Once the replacement is completed, we take the time to clean your yard of any debris and perform a final inspection to ensure the job is done right. In addition to the manufacturer’s warranty on the shingles, we offer a 10-year guarantee on all labor and workmanship.
