Increase Your Home Value 

Not only will a new roof add a good amount of curb appeal to your home, it will also increase the value. How much it will increase depends on a few factors including how much of an upgrade from the old roof and the type of material/quality of the new roof.

Building a New Home

This is a great opportunity to build a roof specifically to fit the new build of your home. Style and color with be major factors.

Leaks

The first thing to consider is whether you need to repair or replace the roof.  A few factors will go into that decision. 

  • How temporary of a fix would it be?
  • How old is the current roof?
  • Are there missing shingles or missing flashing?
  • When is the last time your roof penetrations have been maintained?
  • When is the last time your roof penetrations have been maintained?

Leaks are easy to tell  by the watermarks  on your ceiling and walls.  A small leak can turn into a major problem.

Storm Damage

A strong, reliable roofing system is designed to withstand many outside elements, but some storms push a roof past it’s “breaking” point. 

There are signs to look for when you believe there may have been damage to your roof. 

Please be safe when inspecting your roof — view from a window inside the house or use binoculars from the ground.  If in doubt, call a professional at C. Haynes Construction for a Free Inspection.  

Signs of Storm Damage:

  • Missing shingles
  • Shingles lifting
  • Large dimple like indentations on shingles

Wind Damage

Significant wind can cause shingles to blow off the roof.  Missing shingles can lead to leaks and other interior damage.  Other wind damage may not be easy to see. 

The adhesive seal that provides a water-shedding surface could be broken.  This could lead to major structural damage if not repaired quickly.

All manufacturers publish a Wind Warranty on their shingles; it is important to compare the wind coverage when making your shingle selection on a new roof.

Call C. Haynes for an inspection RIGHT AWAY, so we can walk you through the process of filing an insurance claim and make sure you get all your premiums returned.

Hail Damage

Hail is not something you can easily miss, especially if it’s the kind that will ruin a roof. Hail can hurt a shingle by causing an indention that can often be hard to see but significant enough to allow water to penetrate. You will want to bring out an expert in the case of hail to make sure they can inspect thoroughly. C. Haynes Construction can work with your insurance company to make sure you get the right roofing system to protect your family and your biggest investment.

Signs of Hail Damage visible from ground level:

  • Pieces of window caulk  missing
  • Indentions on your bbq pit
  • Large marks on your fence
  • Leaves from trees all over the ground

Falling debris

During some storms you need to actually worry about tree branches or other falling objects that can land on your roof.

General Warning Signs That a Roof Might Be Past Its Useful Life

  • Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped
  • Bald spots where granules are missing
  • Cracked shingles
  • Your roof is at least 20 years old; while many shingles today are produced for durability, many factors can accelerate the aging of shingles. For example, if your roof is not properly ventilated, it can negatively impact your shingles
  • Neighbors are getting new roofs. Homes built around the same time period can experiencing the same types of weather conditions can mean that your roof is nearing its useful life.
  • The roof just looks old and worn.
  • Dark streaks. Airborne algae cause dark streaks on roof decks. While this may not necessarily harm the roof shingles, it may not look good. Algae streaks can be removed using a 50:50 blend of water and bleach sprayed on your roof. It is important to use a low volume garden hose so you do not knock the protective granules off your shingles. It is also important that you protect your landscaping from the bleach run-off.
  • Moss can grow on roof surfaces that don’t get much sunlight especially in cool, moist climates. Moss growth can be more than a cosmetic issue. Moss holds moisture against the roof surface and overtime in freezing climates can cause damage to the granules on the top of the shingles. Moss can be brushed off but it won’t prevent it from growing again; take care not to damage the shingle surface.

A roof leak can cause damage to drywall, flooring, trim electrical work and framing. Also it could damage any personal property in the area, … basically EVERYTHING.

This is why quality and workmanship is extremely important during a roof install.

A leak in a roof can cause thousands of dollars in damage within minutes of a hard rain storm.  Typically the longer a leak continues before getting fixed the worse it will get.   

We work with your insurance company to make sure you get the full amount needed for repairs.
