Is it Time for a New Roof?

Is it Time for a New Roof?

A roof’s usable life might terminate for a variety of reasons other than a roof breakdown. It’s merely an indication of age and wear, and you’re performing necessary upkeep on your property.

Delaying the replacement of an old roof, however, can lead to more serious issues down the road. If you want to allow yourself plenty of time to add the item to your to-do list, you should keep an eye out for the warning indications.

7 Signs your Roof Needs Replacing


  • The edges of shingles are curled or the tabs are cupped.
  •  Damaged shingles.
  • Your roof is at least 20 years old; while many shingles manufactured now are designed for endurance, numerous variables might hasten their deterioration. For instance, improper ventilation on a roof can have a negative effect on the shingles.
  • The roof simply appears old and weathered.
  • Neighbors are getting new roofs. Having a roof that is towards the end of its useful life if your home was constructed around the same time as others that have experienced the same types of weather conditions indicates that your home was constructed around the same time.
  • Dark stripes. On roof decks, airborne algae cause dark streaks. While this may not necessarily hurt the shingles, it may not be aesthetically pleasing.
  • If sunlight is entering your home from above, it may be time to inspect the roof for any visible damage.
