If You Have Shingles, Be On The Lookout For These Roof Replacement Indicators
Asphalt shingle roofs typically last 20-30 years. For many homeowners, this means they will need to replace their roof in the near future. Regular maintenance and professional repairs when needed can help you get the most out of your roof, but over time, your roof will begin to show that a replacement is necessary.
These are signs it might be time for a new roof.
- The shingle edges are curling. This is a sign that your shingles are deteriorating. The tabs may also be cupped. Another common problem is the development of cracks in the shingles.
- Granules are on the move. Although shingle granules do not protect your shingles against UV damage, they do help to waterproof them. You may see bald spots on your shingles or granules in the gutters after they start to fall off.
- Shingles are discolored. Algae can leave dark spots on your shingles over time. As your shingles age, moss can form on a roof that’s too shaded. Moss can also accelerate the aging of your shingles by causing damage to the granules.
And if you’re unsure, a roofing expert can inspect your roof and make recommendations regarding necessary repairs or replacement. Most of these signs will develop gradually, but if you have experienced severe storms, including hail or strong wind, or noticed signs of water in your attic or ceilings, you should call a roofing company immediately to inspect your roof. When not addressed, your home’s structure can be damaged by water damage, as well as mold and insulation problems. All of these issues can cost you a lot more than replacing your roof.
