Roofing types, maintenance, and typical damage -Your roof might need expert attention right now!

>> Apr 10, 2018


Your precious furniture, choice drapes and necessary electronic appliances remain secure because you have a roof over your head. Your home's reliable, strong and protective roof protects everything within, including you and your family, from the scorching sun and torrential rains. Roofs are the most neglected, yet the essential parts of your home.

Roofs deserve more care than we are often ready to give them. After months, and sometimes, years of standing against the sun, rain, wind, and snow our roofs often cry for attention. We are either too busy to notice, or we simply do not want to add on to our expenses. This continues till one day we notice water dripping from the roof or patches of water soaking through. Silverline Roofing's residential reroof services can help you determine if your roof needs immediate attention.

Different roofing materials sustain different damage

Just like there are different flooring options for your home, you can avail different roofing materials and styles. You can opt for asphalt shingles, slate and tile shingles, metal roofing or ceramic roofing tiles. Each choice comes with their own set of pros and cons.

Can asphalt roofs sustain damage as well?

The usual asphalt roof lasts up to 25 years with little maintenance. Asphalt is both cost-effective and easy to maintain. It is also one of the more common roofing options in the US. In case you have a roof that’s over 25 years old, you may want experts to take a closer look. Sometimes, even though a roof looks apparently good from the ground, a little closer inspection is necessary to ensure preserved integrity and strength.

Do ceramic tiled roofs need reroofing as well?

Ceramic tiled roofs are great indeed. They are fire-retardant, cost-effective, sleek and fade resistant too. They are quite perfect in posh, stylish and eco-friendly neighborhoods. However, in areas with fluctuating weather, these tend to erode fast. If your home has a ceramic tile roof, you need to check it for wind damage and sun damage from time to time.

Signs of metal roof damage

Metal roofs are usually long lasting and sustainable too. They need very little regular maintenance. They are also much lighter and brighter. You will need an experienced contractor to take care of your roofing needs in case you opt for a metal roof now. They do tend to fade over time in the harsh sun. You can either repaint the roof or replace them, the former being the most pocket-friendly option. 

Even the most resilient materials need regular care when they stand out in the natural elements for years on end. Without proper reroofing and maintenance, you will find icicles in your attic, encroaching rodents, and animals that enter through the cracks of the tiles, accumulating water from the melting snow and collecting debris in the gutters from breaking shingles. These are all telltale signs of a damaged roof that needs immediate reroofing.
