It’s always important to know how old your roof is if you have moved into a house that was built before. A professional roofer inspects the roof to check how old it is and then lists down any problems you have or can have in the future. If your roof is made with long-lasting material like tiles or slates, they can add any new fixes needed rather than just ask you to change the whole roof to make more money for themselves.

Growth of Mold or Moss

Calling a roofer to check if the roof is rotting and needs to be changed is a good idea. A professional roofer will help in choosing different materials so your new roof doesn’t face decomposition again.

A professional roofer ensures the materials used can withstand severe weather conditions and have proper ventilation. A well-made roof should last up to 10-15 years.

Appropriate Shingles
