Shayla: Thank you for joining us today for the Roof Life of Oregon podcast. I’m talking today with Jerry who is a roof specialist at Roof Life. And, Jerry, how do you know when it’s time to replace you roof?
Jerry: Well, one way to know if you need to replace your roof is if you have a heavy rain come up and you kind of cringe, and you hope that it stays together. That is one way, actually, that you’ll kind of figure it out. If you get an uneasy feeling, when you know weather is coming, that’s a pretty good indication that your mind and body is telling you something. But typically, the way you can tell if a roof needs to be replaced, is after a rain storm, if you see a leak or two, just because you see a leak doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to be replaced, but it’s a good indication that something’s not right, or if you see shingles laying in the gutter or laying on the ground after a wind storm. That’s also a really good indication that it’s time to considerate, or when you look up and it just looks tired. That’s also a really good time to look at it.
And give us a call and we’ll just come out and take a look at it. We’re going to give you an honest evaluation of your roof, because we do not want to replace a roof if it does not need to be. A lot of times, you just need to do a little something here and there, but there are times that it’s just time. So when do you know? It’s when you have that uneasy feeling, you have stuff laying in your yard, or it just really looks tired.
Shayla: And, Jerry, another way might be to be getting regular maintenance from Roof Life of Oregon, right? If you’re getting that check up regularly, you guys will be able to know when it’s time to start budgeting for it.
Jerry: Definitely. One advantage that we’ve had working and being in this industry for so long, for thirty five years now, we are able to take a look at a roof, and we can give you a pretty good guess at when it needs to be replaced, whether it’s one year, two years, three years, or ten years. Sometimes we’re going to come to your house and say embrace the moss and budget for a new roof in two to three years, and then replace it, or we’re going to say let’s do a little bit of maintenance, get this roof moving forward, and let’s get you ten more years out of it. So just give us a call. It’s the simplest way to realize if you need a new roof or not.
Shayla: So if you have the uneasy feeling when the storms are coming in this season, make sure you get Roof Life of Oregon out to your house for a well care check-up. Thanks, Jerry.
Jerry: You bet.
