What are the warning signs that you need a new roof?
It’s important to be aware of the warning signs that you might need a new roof and it is time to call a roofing contractor for a replacement. Here are some signs that indicate it might be time to install a new roof:
1. Your roof is more than 20 years old.
Your roof is more than 20 years old. It is time to think about getting a roof replacement. A new roof will not only improve the look of your home, but a new roof will also add value to your home. Replacing your roof is a big investment, but it is one that will pay off in the long run.
2. Your roof has severe damage
Even if your existing roof is relatively new, it could still need replacement if it sustained significant damage to your entire roof from a storm or other event. If more than a few shingles are missing or damaged, or if there is any water damage present, a replacement will likely be necessary.
3. You see daylight through your roof.
It’s never a good sign when you see daylight through your home’s roof. This means that there are holes or cracks in your roof that are letting in light. This is a serious problem because it means that your roof is not doing its job of protecting your home from the outside elements and that your roof is nearing the end of its average lifespan and you may need to replace the roof. If you see daylight through your roof, you should call us, Old Line Roofing and Solar, so we can do an immediate inspection as soon as possible.
4. Your shingles are curling or deteriorating.
If your shingles are curling or deteriorating, it is important to have them replaced as soon as possible. Shingles protect your roof from weather damage and keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Damaged shingles can allow water to leak into your home, causing mold and mildew to grow. In extreme cases, damaged shingles can cause your roof to collapse. If you suspect that your shingles are damaged, call a professional roofer to inspect your roof and make repairs as necessary. If you call us, we’ll promptly come out, perform a comprehensive property and roof evaluation, provide temporary repairs if needed, and go over all of your options and answer questions on the cost to replace your roof.
5. There is moss or algae growth on your roof.
If you notice moss or algae growing onto your roof, you will need to act promptly. This can lead to serious problems because the growth can hold moisture against the shingles and lead to premature deterioration. You can try to remove it with a garden hose or by brushing it with a stiff brush, but it may come back and cause additional roof damage.
6. You have missing or damaged shingles.
If you have missing or damaged shingles, you should replace them as soon as possible so there is a smaller chance of damage to your roof. Shingles are the protective barriers to protect your roof, so leaving them damaged or missing can lead to serious problems down the line. Not only will you be more susceptible to leaks and water damage, but your home’s energy efficiency will also suffer if your roof is damaged. Replacing shingles is a relatively easy and inexpensive repair, so there’s no excuse not to do it right away.
7. Your gutters are full of shingle granules.
Your gutters are full of shingle granules. This is a problem because when it rains, the water can’t flow properly and may cause leaks. You’ll need to clean out your gutters to prevent this from happening to the roof surface.
8. You can hear animals scratching inside your attic.
You can hear animals scratching inside your attic. This is a common problem that homeowners face. There are a few things that you can do to get rid of the animals. You can call a professional to take care of the problem, or you can try to do it yourself. If you want to try to do it yourself, you will need to figure out what kind of animal is in your attic and then follow the appropriate steps to get rid of it.

What Can You Expect from a Roof Replacement
A full replacement is a big job, and it’s important to know what to expect before starting the project. First, the roofing contractor will remove the old roof, including the felt paper and any damaged plywood. Next, they’ll install new felt paper and plywood, if needed. Then they’ll install the new shingles, being careful to overlap each row and seal the edges with adhesive. Finally, they’ll nail down any loose shingles and clean up the job site. A full roof replacement can take several days to complete, depending on the size of the roof.
How much is it going to cost to replace my roof?
There are many factors that determine the cost of getting your roof replaced, such as:
Roofing labor costs
The expense of roofing labor can vary depending on the size and type of roof, as well as the area where the work is being performed, which will also affect the cost. In general, roofing labor costs tend to be higher in larger cities and coastal areas than in smaller towns or inland regions. Additionally, the cost of roofing labor may be higher for complex roofs or those that require special materials or equipment.
Type of building materials for roofing
There are a variety of different types of materials that can be used for roofing. Some of the most common include asphalt, metal, tile, and wood. Each type of material has its own benefits and drawbacks that should be considered when choosing a roofing material. Asphalt is one of the most popular choices because it is inexpensive and easy to install. However, it does not last as long as some of the other options. Metal roofs are more durable than asphalt, but they can be more expensive. Tile roofs are also quite durable, but they can be very heavy and require special installation techniques. Wood roofs are beautiful, but they require more maintenance than other types of roofs. We use the best roofing materials from Owens Corning, a global leader in the roofing industry.
Square footage and pitch
The roof is one of the most important parts of a house, and its square footage and pitch are two important factors to consider when looking at roof replacement costs. The square footage of a roof is the total area of the roof, and the pitch is the angle of the roof. A higher pitch means that the roof will shed water and snow more easily, but it will also be more expensive to replace. A lower pitch means that the roof will be more durable, but it will take longer for water and snow to drain off of it.
Whether the current roof needs to be removed
A roof inspection, performed by our qualified roof inspectors at Old Line Roofing and Solar, will determine if the roof needs to be replaced or if it requires a roof repair. However, if the roof is leaking or shows signs of wear and tear, then it is time for a new roof.
Any upgrades or repairs the roof needs
If the roof structure is in need of any upgrades or repairs, we will perform this work before the roofing materials cover the roof. The most pressing issues are the leaks in the roof that need to be repaired.
The complexity of the roof installation
The roof installation is a complex process that involves many different steps. First, the roofing material must be selected and cut to size. Next, the roofing felt or other underlayments must be installed. The shingles or other roofing material is then installed, starting at the bottom edge of the roof and working up. Finally, the flashing and other trim pieces are installed to complete the roof.
Location of the home for roof replacement
The location of your home is one of the primary considerations when you are planning for a roof replacement. If your home is in an area that experiences extreme weather conditions, it is important to make sure that your roof can withstand the elements. For example, if you live in an area that gets a lot of snow, you will want to make sure that your roof is able to support the weight of the snow. Additionally, if you live in an area with high winds, you will want to make sure that your roof is secure enough to prevent damage from the wind. These factors also impact the total cost to replace a roof.
