Your Burlington Roofing Contractor
The most important part of a Burlington home's weatherproofing is its roof. Well-installed roofs should generally last twelve to twenty years, depending on environmental conditions. Tile roofs last longer, of course, but both cedar shake and asphalt roofs need to be replaced regularly and maintained when they are damaged. There are a number of signs that indicate you need to have a professional Burlington roofer repair or even replace your roofing material. If any of these occur in a roof past its age limit, get a professional Burlington roofer to inspect it as soon as possible. Water can leak into your house and cause damage in a very short amount of time.
One of the most obvious signs is water leakage in the attic or in the ceilings of rooms below the attic space. Leaks can have a number of sources, and not all of them mean a full replacement is necessary. Rain driven by the wind can seep under shingles and through damaged tar paper, and missing cracked, or damaged shingles can also allow seepage. If you see shingles that have curled or are cracked or missing, hire a Burlington roofer to repair them. Water can also penetrate through damaged flashing around vents, chimneys, eaves and skylights.
Another sign of serious Burlington roof problems is a dramatic change in heating or cooling bills. If your attic is well insulated and you still have rising energy costs, damaged shingles and inadequate coverage may be to blame. Over time, roofs are damaged by all the elements--wind, rain, ice, sun, condensation, leaves, and other debris all take their toll on your home's exterior. Keep your roof clean in good repair to forestall the bigger bill of a replacement. Roofs do need to be replaced eventually, but you can put it off longer with proper maintenance.
