Even though the longevity of a roof will depend on many factors, including the material used, the maintenance performed, and the presence of extreme weather events. There are a few common signs that you may need a new roof. You should investigate roof replacement if you see:

  • Normal wear and tear
  • Extensive missing or broken shingles, leaks, or light coming through the attic.
  • Your roof is past its warranty
  • Roof has suffered storm damage, like hail, high winds, or poor ventilation

With every type of roof, we replace, and every home or building we work on, one of our main concerns is Ventilation

Have you had ventilation problems in the past? Have you dealt with mold in your attic, or streaks or excess moss and growth on the exterior of your existing roof? If so, then it’s possible that your roof, and your roofing system, isn’t providing the level of ventilation that your home needs.


Poor ventilation can create health issues, due to poor air quality in your home. That’s because attics and crawl spaces, on average, are dirtier and dustier than your living areas. Moreover, if air isn’t ventilating properly, you could be breathing this bad air daily, and especially when you sleep. Consequently, when you choose NW Home Exteriors to replace your roof, you’re selecting an experienced team of roofers and roofing professionals who care about how well your attic is ventilating. Above all, we make sure it is up to code and is functioning with the correct intake/outtake ventilation ratio.
