Signs that your roof needs a replacement
A roof can naturally reach the end of its lifespan. Its durability may vary depending on the climate, roof design, material, installation, and maintenance. Replacing your roof can be very costly so it is best to know when you might need to replace your roof.
Let’s take a look at some warning signs that your roof may need to be replaced.
- ROOF AGE
Your roof age is a key factor in determining if it needs to be replaced. Roofs that are 20-25 years old may come to the end of their natural lifespan. You may also observe that your neighbors are getting new roofs, this can mean that your roof is nearing its useful life.
- Old, worn, and tired
The roof just looks old, worn, and tired.
- SHINGLES ARE IN BAD SHAPE
The shingle edges are showing fiberglass. You will also notice that the shingles are cracking.
- GRANULE LOSS
The purpose of granules is to protect the shingles from sun exposure. There may be bald patches or spots because of missing granules. Hefty granule loss may cause damage to your roof and hasten the need for a replacement.
Moss can cause extensive damage to your roof and home. It grows into a thick, tough layer and spreads on cracks and crevices between the shingles. It may also seep into your home and can be health-threatening.
