When to Replace Your Roof
There are a few key signs homeowners can be aware of to let them know it is time to replace their roof. Some of the indicators are cracking of the shingles, major granule loss, curling of the shingles, or several different leaks in the same area, which is often caused because the shingles are deteriorated out in the middle of the roof, there’s no flashing, there’s no pipes coming through the roof. Sometimes a roof needs to be replaced due to basic wear and tear on the shingles, and sometimes it’s because a roof was never installed correctly, which can lead to premature aging and deterioration. When the time has come to replace the roof, Bakeris Roofing offers a reward system, so that any time a customer spends money doing repairs with Bakeris Roofing, let’s say $1,000 is spent on repairs, they get 10% of that back towards a new roof.
