Signs you may need a new Roof

Old Roof

No matter how diligently a homeowner pays attention to their house roof, there will come a time when the roof simply cannot be repaired and instead must be replaced. But how does a homeowner know when to make such a seemingly drastic call about their house roof? Not to worry; there are several telltale signs that the time for a brand new roof has come at last.

Curled and cracked shingles – If your house roof is made of asphalt shingles and it’s been more than 15 years since the roof was replaced, the general rule of thumb advises that you lean towards getting it replaced. By this time, the roof may be showing serious signs of wear. A house roof whose majority of shingles are curled and cracking is one that probably needs replacing.

Stains –  If there are stains on the outer walls of the house, on the rafters, or on the decking underneath the roof’s shingles, that is a major red flag. Staining around the areas of a house roof can be an indication of problems such as wood rot, a buildup of excessive moisture, or a combination of both. These problems tend to be more common in areas that face seasonal storms and humidity, so your house roof can therefore be vulnerable to these elements and eventually need to be replaced.

Excessive sagging – Poor workmanship or an inadequately ventilated roof can lead to a sagging roof. If the house roof is noticeably sagging, and especially if it has been that way for some time, the house is likely to need a replacement roof.

When Does an Asphalt Shingle Roof Need Replacement?

Roof-Replacement-in-process

Each roof’s condition is unique, and needs to be carefully looked at in order to determine whether replacement shingles are needed, or if an entirely new roof is needed.

Typically, an asphalt shingle roof will last roughly 20 years unless it was installed improperly, or a severe hail or wind storm damaged the shingles. Each roofing system is unique and should be looked at by a professional.
