Evidence That It’s Time To Replace Your Roof

There are many different signs that will show a homeowner that it’s time for a roof replacement. Don’t wait for a big leak to call a roofing contractor. Being proactive will ensure less damage to your house and will eventually save you money.

Signs it’s Time For a New Roof

How Old Is Your Roof? 

If your asphalt roof is only 5-10 years old, chances are it has plenty of life left in it. Asphalt roofs typically last between 20-30 years so if your roof is within the ladder of that time range, you may not have that much time left.

Entire Shingles Are Missing

A shingle here or there isn’t the end of the world as they can be replaced. But, if shingles are missing all over your roof, your house will start to look like a checkerboard. Additionally, this probably means that something is wrong with your roof.

Curling of Shingles

Shingles that curl means that the edges turn upward and away from the flat position that they previously were. This shows that your roof is weathering and could be a sign that potential leaks are in the making.

Granules in the Gutters

If you look in your gutters and see a pileup of shingle granules, it’s something to worry about. That means that your shingles are becoming less protective and the quality of your roof will start to deteriorate quickly.

Sunlight Through Your Attic

This may be the easiest thing to notice, but go up into your attic during a sunny day and look for sunlight making its way into your attic. If light can get in, that means so can rain, air, snow and possibly critters.

Sagging Roof

This is probably the most frantic sign that should yield immediate action. A sagging roof usually indicates structural damage and the problem is just waiting to get worse.
