That is why you want to make sure you are certain that you do in fact need a new roof for this summer because getting one. To determine if you need a new roof this summer, keep the following aspects in mind.
Holes in Your Roof
A good indicator of whether or not you need a new roof is if you find there are holes in it. You might notice that there is sunlight entering your home, which is usually the result of holes in your roof and something that you will need to fix or replace right away. Sometimes this is a simple fix that you can make without replacing the entire roof, other times it affects the stability of your roof and might require an entirely new roof to be installed. Having holes in your roof is a serious problem because it can lead to pests entering your home, health risks endangering your family, and increasing damage to your roof and home the longer this is unaddressed.
If you find yourself with a leaky roof, then you will be in a situation where you will need a replacement.

Having a roof that leaks gives the rain an open invitation to enter your home whenever it starts to pour. If this is a problem you are experiencing, then it may be time for you to get a new roof for your home.
Mortar is not holding up
Mortar is an important part of your roof that helps hold the whole roof together. Mortar is used on the verges (the outer part of the roof) and ridges (where two sections overlap) of the roof. In the scenario that you find your mortar is failing, perhaps it may be time for a new roof.
