Generally, asphalt shingles include 20- to 25-year warranties, but this doesn’t always mean they last this long. If your Cape Carteret, NC home is hit by a hurricane or another bad storm, you may have to get a new roof sooner. Keep your eyes peeled for the following issues.
Shingles on the ground – If you walk outside and see shingles from your roof on the ground, it’s probably past time to consider a roof replacement. Leaving bare spots on your roof can lead to all sorts of issues, including vermin and mold infestations.
Water Spots – Unsightly brown water spots on your drywall or plaster walls can indicate that you are dealing with water damage caused by your roof. It’s important to have a professional roofer look into this, so you know if a new roof is likely to solve the problem.
Leaks – Generally, water spots are caused by leaks, which, again, are frequently the result of failing roofing materials. The best thing to do is to schedule a roof inspection with a reputable company like Hatch Homes.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles:
Architectural asphalt shingles can give your Cape Carteret home a facelift without spending a fortune. These three-dimensional shingles are often crafted to look like other materials, such as wood shakes, that are more expensive. They are an increasingly popular choice.
Metal roofing can be a good option for families who are focused on the lifespan of their new roofs — generally, metal roof panels last for 50 years or more. They are not, however, always the best choice for coastal residences, as they can corrode over time due to saltwater exposure.
Rubber roofing is designed specifically to help prevent leaks. It doesn’t have to be used on your home’s entire roof but can be a great solution for areas that have long experienced leaking. Talk to the Hatch Homes crew if you think rubber roof tiles could be an option for you.
Very few homeowner’s insurance policies don’t cover roof replacements, but some homeowners aren’t familiar with the finer points of their policies. If you fall into this category, make sure you speak to a local Cape Cateret agent before you schedule your renovation project’s start date.
