New Year, New Roof: A Roof Replacement Can Upgrade Your Home in 2023


New Year’s Resolutions are common subjects as the calendar flips from December to January. What can be accomplished in the upcoming months to improve my life? Maybe you resolve to drink more water. Volunteer more at local shelters. Exercise a little more. Be kind. Deciding to be a better person is an admirable goal. 

What about around your home? Do you set goals for creating a more peaceful environment? Perhaps it is to create a new garden area, upgrade your kitchen appliances, or improve the look of your home. 

To have many more years of comfortable living in your home now is the best time to consider the framework of your home. Specifically, your roof. No home is complete without a properly working roofing system. 

We don’t think much about our roofs until they fail us. That’s why it is wise to consider the roof at the beginning of the new year. Ask yourself: is my roof holding up as it should? Do I see areas of damage?

How do I know the condition of my roof? 

You have turned to the right spot!  

Consider the following items to determine whether a new roof is in your future. 


Do you notice discoloration in the ceiling of your attic or second-story rooms? Are there brown or yellow stains present on your walls? This is a good indication that your roof is failing to do its job. The insulation has most likely failed and there could be water seeping through the underlayment. Many times when you see evidence of leaks, quite a bit of damage has already occurred. It is time to consider a new roof


When you are in your attic area, and you look up, can you see daylight? Once again, this is an indication that the roofing system has open spots and that the insulation and underlayment are no longer working properly.

Be sure to let your roofing experts see this when they come to do an inspection.
