Your roof endures various weather conditions all year round. At some point, it will need replacement so that you can keep your home protected from the elements. Regular roof inspections can help you determine the right time to replace a roof. Here are some signs that’ll tell you it’s time for a roof replacement project.
On average, asphalt shingles last for 20 to 30 years. If you know when your roof was installed, you can anticipate the time you should prepare for a roof replacement. Even if your roof looks fine, you should hire a professional to carry out a thorough inspection to detect hidden damage and figure out if a replacement is necessary.
Granules are added onto asphalt shingles to protect them from ultraviolet (UV) rays. These also give your shingles their color. When you notice fading or bald patches on your roof, this indicates significant granule loss – which is often a sign it’s time to replace your roof. Once granules build up in your gutters, you may need to schedule a roof replacement soon.
There are two forms of shingle curling. One is cupping, which occurs when the shingle edges turn upward. Another is clawing, which happens when the edges remain flat while the middle rises. Both of these are signs of weathering and indicate potential leaks.
An uneven roof means there is damage to your roof’s structural supports. Make sure to address the problem immediately. In some cases, a repair is enough to resolve the issue. But for severe sagging and damage to the roof structure, a replacement might be necessary.
