Cincinnati Roof Replacement Time? 3 Huge Red Flags


Roof Replacement Time? 3 Huge Red Flags

As a homeowner, you probably have enough projects around your home keeping you busy to think about roof replacement. It’s easy to let it mentally slide into the “someday” to-do list since our roof isn’t something we look at from above too often, if ever. However, this mentality winds up being incredibly costly in the long run.

Your roof is one of the single most important structural components of your home. No matter what type of roof you have, all roofs need to be replaced over time. Ensure you get it done on your time—rather than as a last-minute emergency. Here are three huge red flags letting you know loud and clear that it’s time to call in the professionals:

1. Your shingles have seen better days. Are they cracking, curled up at the edges, growing moss, cupped, buckling, or actually missing? If your shingles are looking rough, that means they aren’t doing their job to help protect what’s beneath them from the elements anymore. 

2. It’s more than 20 years old. Most roofing and construction experts concur that quality roofs tend to last approximately 20-25 years. Even if there is no visible damage, you should still hire a roofing company to at least come inspect your roof once it hits the 20-year marker.

3. Here comes the sun—but not in a good way. Can you see sunlight poking in through your roof boards? Is the attic a bit brighter than it ought to be? This may seem like common sense, but many homeowners simply don’t notice this problem because they don’t spend a lot of time in their attics. Make sure you visit and inspect all areas of your home at least monthly to avoid this.

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.
