Signs That You Need A New Roof

You should never take any chances when it comes to the roof over your head. It protects you, your family, and your investment from different elements. Some issues may not warrant a roof replacement, but some signs will tell you it’s time to call the roof replacement service.

Here are some signs that you need a new roof:

Curled, Missing, Or Buckled Shingles

Shingles deteriorate as they age, and if your shingles are buckling and curling, it could mean they’re past their life expectancy. Curling edges are a common sign of worn-out asphalt and wood shingles. If just a few are damaged, you can replace them, but if they’re many, you need to consider arranging for a roof replacement service.

Shingle Color Change

A healthy roof should have a consistent and fluid color across its surface. However, a color change is one of the telltale signs that it’s getting old and reaching the end of its lifespan.  Consider the age of your roof when you start noticing your shingles changing color. It could indicate that it’s time for a new roof.

Regular Leaks

Leaks are a definite sign that something is wrong with your roof. If you’ve repaired your roof before because of leaks, but it leaks, again and again, then it’s time to consider a roof replacement service instead of repairs. 

Debris In Gutters

Asphalt shingles that have reached the end of their lifespan start shedding their embedded granules. You may begin to see shingle pieces or granules in the gutters or on the ground around the roof. The more granules, the sooner you need a roof replacement service.

Saggy Or Droopy Spots On Your Roof

Saggy or droopy spots on your roof are a sure sign your roof needs to be replaced. It usually means the roofing deck supporting your roofing materials has grown weak or is damaged. This is risky and can lead to the whole roof structure collapsing into your home. To avoid any further damage and risks, call in a roof replacement service for inspection and remedy.
