An old roof can deteriorate faster due to the effects of the elements, cold winters, hot summers, intense storms, hail, etc. The thermal insulation is also negatively affected when your roof is in an advanced state of disrepair and fails to ensure adequate protection for the building, thus decreasing the value of your home.
Considering these aspects, you will have to keep an eye on your aging roof and keep in touch with a San Jose roofing contractor who can offer you professional advice and develop the best solutions to restore your roof and increase its lifespan.
The main types of work involved in an old roof renovation project include:
Identifying the roof’s existing problems and vulnerabilities is the first stage of the roof renovation process; depending on the severity of the damage, the repair plan is further established.
Consolidating the roof’s frame – in some cases, this can be done partially, without replacing the roof altogether.
Replacing damaged materials and accessories – if the roof damage is not too extensive, it can still be fixed. Replacing a few shingles/ tiles or accessories is not complicated either, at least not for an established San Jose roofing company specialist.
Fixing the rainwater system – the lifespan of your roof can also be increased if every part of the drainage system (eaves, downspout, gutters) is fully functional.
