Do I Need a New Roof?
How to Know When You Need a New Roof

Many homeowners who call us know that their roof is coming to the end of its service life, but they don’t know how much longer it will last. Others are taken by surprise when their roof springs a leak, unaware of earlier symptoms that indicated it was no longer able to provide the protection they needed. No matter the situation, Marriott’s Roofing can help.

As one of the most experienced roofing companies in the Hamilton, Burlington and Ancaster areas, we’ve seen it all and we know how to fix it all! In many cases, we can make repairs that will extend the life of your roof for several years. However, there comes a time when a roof is damaged beyond reasonable repair, or it has simply worn out, and replacement is the only option. At times like this, it’s good to know you’ve got the roofing professionals that local residents and residential builders call on when they want the best.

Look for These Signs
There are several signs that indicate a roof may have issues. To avoid surprises, we recommend an inspection by a professional roofer like Marriott’s Roofing, who can find and diagnose the cause. 

1. Ceiling spots. Stains on your ceiling may be caused by roof leaks. Keep in mind that water often travels, so the location of a leak may not     be directly above a ceiling stain. 
2. Damaged flashing. Problems with flashing, the metal strips around vent pipes, chimneys, windows and skylights, are the source of a great     majority of roof leaks. Causes may be weather, improper installation or age. 
3. Missing shingles. Shingles that have been blown off a roof by wind must or other elements should be repaired quickly. 
4. Worn shingles. Shingles that are cracked, blistered, curled or excessively worn must be replaced to avoid leaks. 
5. Excessive algae or moss growth. These tiny organisms can break down the structure of a shingle and trap moisture on its surface, causing premature aging. 
6. Buckling, warping or sagging roof deck. The roof deck is the foundation of your roof, and must be free of rot and structural damage. We can make repairs to decking prior to installing a new roof. 

If you discover any of these problems, there’s no need to worry. Simply contact Marriott’s Roofing, the local roofing company Hamilton, Burlington and Ancaster residents trust to provide a professional inspection and honest guidance regarding what to do next.
