Your roof is not just there to cover your head. It is there to add to the house's value and you need to know that. I see people who are rather oblivious because they don't know what is needed. They don't think the austin roof is all that important which means their decisions also reflect this opinion.
They wait until the roof is falling apart and is rotting at the core. Is that the position to take on this matter? I would hope not because the roof has to look good for the house to look good. Once you have not given thought to this, you are not adding to your own misery.
I would hate to have a roof that is knocking all the time because of the flimsy and aging material. I would also hate to have a roof that does not look nice when you view it for the first time. I would rather have something that is better because that is the only way to go.
I have seen roofs that just collapse because the owner didn't care for them even when they were moaning. It is just reckless on their end and they paid for it.
