Are you in need of roof repair or roof replacement? How do you know? There are some tell-tale warning signs to take note of that indicate it may be time to address the current state of your roof. Let’s shed light on some of those signs and tell you how we can assist with your new roof.
YOUR ROOF IS 20+ YEARS OLD
The age is your roof is one of the most common determining factors in replacement. Most roofs have a life expectancy of 20 to 25 years, although this depends on various factors including proper ventilation, installation, and shingle layering. Learn more about the disadvantages of layering shingles. If your roof is 20+ years old and was installed on top of another layer of shingles, it’s likely time for a replacement.
YOUR SHINGLES ARE DAMAGED OR MISSING
Are your shingles curled, buckling, or missing? If you are noticing shingle granules in your gutters, this is a clear indicator that your shingles are damaged. Shingles tend to curl and lose their granules when they are past their life expectancy and in need of replacement. Shingles can also go missing as a result of hail damage and other natural causes. Additionally, shingles are susceptible to damage from algae growth that leaves black streaks on your roofing. Learn more about the benefits of algae-resistant shingles if you want to avoid this occurrence on your new roof.
YOUR ROOF VALLEYS ARE FALLING APART
Your roof valleys are essential to the function of your roof. If there are shingles missing, damaged, or falling apart in the valleys of your roof then it is incredibly important that you contact us as soon as possible. If your roof valleys aren’t functioning properly, this means that rainwater cannot effectively flow into your gutters. Moisture is incredibly damaging to roofing, and you will notice this if you are walking on your roof and feel a soft spot (yet another sign that it’s time for a new roof).
