When your roof is damaged, repairs are often all that is needed. What happens if the damage or deterioration is serious? Determining when it’s time to replace your roof can be difficult. There are certain factors to take into consideration when trying to figure out whether you need repairs or a replacement. If your roof is showing obvious signs of wear, you may need to have your roof replaced. Other signs that you should consider having your roof replaced include buckled or curled shingles, missing shingles – especially in the roof valleys, and the presence of shingle granules in your gutters. These signs indicate that your roof is in need of more than simple repairs to keep it from suffering extensive damage that leaves your home vulnerable to the elements.
Types of Shingles
When it’s time to choose shingles for your roof replacement, there are many types to consider. GAF, Owens Corning, Certainteed, and Tamko are the four major brands we recommend using. There are many styles, colors, and options to choose from when using these manufacturers.
When you need a roof replacement, a metal roof could be a good option for your home. These roofs come in a variety of designs and shades to suit many different home styles. Metal roofs provide many benefits such as a longer lifespan than a composition roof, added fire resistance, and the ability to reflect heat. Metal roofs are not recommended for all home designs. Please discuss this with an Acme roof professional so we can provide you with the best possible roof system to meet your requirements.
Stone Coated Steel
Stone coated steel roofs provide a more durable and cost-effective alternative to more expensive materials while maintaining the aesthetics that make the more expensive options appealing. These roofs can be designed to look like Mediterranean clay tile roofs, slate roofs or shingles without having the drawbacks associated with these roofing materials. Stone coated steel roofs are available in a wide range of designs, styles, and colors, giving you plenty of options to consider for your home. Stone coated steel roofs stand up well to wind, rain and other types of severe weather. Also, they have a lightweight design that makes them easy to install, and they are eco-friendly.
