A good roofing system not only protects everything inside your home from the elements, it helps prevent water from seeping into exterior walls and the foundation. If your roofing system is showing telltale signs that it needs to be replaced, it’s worth the effort to explore your best options. Following are signs that a reroof project should be on your spring to-do list and three great CertainTeed shingle roof replacement products.
Signs You Need Shingle Roof Replacement
If your aging roof has given way to the elements and allowed water seepage into your home, you may be questioning if it needs to be replaced sooner rather than later. Following are signs that a shingle roof replacement is a wise investment now:
- There are missing shingles.
- The shingle edges are curled or buckled.
- The shingles are beginning to crack.
- The tabs on the shingles are cupped.
- You notice bald spots on shingles due to missing granules.
- You see granules in the gutters or downspouts.
- Water has penetrated the attic, exterior walls or living spaces.
Of the three major categories of roofing shingles available in the market, strip shingles offer the lowest first cost–not necessarily the lowest lifetime cost. Strip shingles are single-layered products with a flat appearance. While strip shingles once dominated the home roofing market, more homeowners and home builders are opting for products with greater curb appeal and durability.
CertainTeed Dimensional Shingles
Dimensional shingles (also called architectural shingles) are the predominant shingle roofing product used today. Dimensional shingles are dual-layered products that provide a multi-dimensional, rich appearance for your roof. CertainTeed offers a multi-layered shingle–CertainTeed’s tri-laminate technology–available in a wide range of designs and offers a better warranty than strip shingles.
