At some point in your life, if you own a home, you will probably have to spring for a new roof. How will you know when it is time? There a lot of signs that tell you it is time for a new roof. One sign is if your roof is leaking in one more than one place. Another sign is if you have paid for a number of roof repairs and more are on the way. While it makes sense to make a roof repair every now and then, paying for repairs on a regular basis that is a sure sign that a brand new roof is needed.
