One of the most common questions we receive from homeowners is if they need a roof replacement. Your roof protects you and your belongings from the weather day in and day out. Regular repair and maintenance makes sure that it performs its job effectively, but one day all the wear and tear will take its toll. Here are the signs that you need a new roof for your home.
- Your roof is more than two decades old – Typical asphalt shingle roofs last between 20 and 30 years. If your roof is around this age, you need to call an expert in roof repair like us for an evaluation. If it’s older, then your roof might have underlying problems, even if it seems to be in good condition.
- Shingle granules in the gutters – Shingle granules protect your roof from long-term sun exposure. As your roof ages, it tends to lose granules towards the end of its service life. Without these granules, your roof is now more vulnerable to damage. This means that you might need new residential roofing soon.
- Curling, cracked, or missing shingles – These signs mean that your shingles can no longer protect your underlayment from damage. While you can replace the damaged shingles, we recommend a residential roof replacement. Extensive shingle damage means your roof is at the end of its life span and you might end up replacing it within three to five years. It’s better not to wait this long to avoid the risk of roof leaks.
- Your roof is sagging – This is an emergency because a sagging roof can indicate a structural issue. The best thing you can do is to contact a professional like us while the problem is small and localized. We can determine the cause of this problem and address the issue properly.
