5 Signs Its Time to Replace your Roofline
There are 3 main elements that combine to create your Roofline to protect your home from the elements. Whilst soffits, fascia boards and guttering often last for a long period of time, they will need replacing. We’ve put together a list of 5 signs its time to replace your Roofline.
Crackled, flaking paint
One or two cracks can be easy to ignore but several cracks and flakes not only look shabby but they could be hiding a bigger issue such as leaks. So if your roofline is looking like it’s seen better days, it’s probably time to replace the soffits, fascia boards and guttering.
Soft patches in the wood
If you’ve spotted some soft patches in the wood forming in your roofline, it is likely a sign that the wood is rotting or that holes are on the way. Ensure you inspect your roofline regularly, especially if you live in an older home, for rot and holes to protect your home from damage.
Evidence of rodents and pests
Have you heard rustling or birds in your attic? Maybe you’ve discovered rodent dropping or lots of bugs in your attic. Both of these are signs that your roofline has been compromised or damaged. In this situation it is best to contact pest control if you suspect rodents are nesting in your attic and then replace your roofline.
If you’ve noticed your guttering is leaking or have spotted damp patches on your ceilings, we recommend taking a closer look at your roofline. Water getting into your home through the roof can cause damage to the structural integrity of your property and potentially cause health hazards like mould and damp. In any of these cases it is best to replace your soffits, fascia boards and guttering to prevent further damage to your home caused by leaks.
Blocked roof ventilation
Noticed the air in your attic smells stale? This could be a sign that there is something blocking your roof ventilation causing the air to be stagnant. It could also be a sign that the roofline is damaged. If you suspect either damage or blockage it is best to investigate and contact a professional to replace the roofline as blockage or damage can exacerbate issues like condensation and damp.
