Need A New Roof? Spot The Danger Signs.

Does Your Denver Home Need A Roof Replacement?

These Are The Danger Signs That Your Roof Is On Its Way Out

We are trained to identify roofing issues and provide solutions for simple repairs to complete re-roofs with correcting venting and insulation issues to give you a complete roofing system for both your residential or commercial property.

After years of being exposed to rain, sun, wind, snow, and other elements that make up our weather patterns, your shingles, tiles, or flat roof can start to wear down. Curling, peeling, and eventual disintegration of roof shingles can lead to permanent damage to your roof and eventually, the overall structure of your home. Many people don’t realize they have roofing problems until drips appear on their ceiling. We are trained to identify these clues to determine if you need a new roof.

That’s why you should try to inspect your roof every year, and contact a professional roofer like Roof Worx to conduct a thorough roof inspection of your roof.

One or more of the following signs may be an indication of a potentially serious roof problem:

Possible cause: Shingles have reached the end of their useful life or too much heat on the roof from poor venting of the attic.
