Signs That It May Be Time To Replace Your Shingle Roof
The Roof Shingles are curling in the middle or on the edges.
When shingles start curling and warping, it can put your home at risk for leaks, which can then lead to extensive and costly damages to other parts of your home including walls, ceilings, support beams and more.
You notice granules from shingles in your gutters.
If you notice shingle granules in your gutters and your roof is over 10 years old, that is a sign that the shingles are degrading and it is time to contact a roofing contractor to come inspect your roof for replacement.
Many of the shingles are missing, cracked or damaged.
It's important to inspect your roof or have it inspected by a professional regularly, especially after bad storms and heavy winds. It is not uncommon for shingles to be missing or damaged after bad storms and it's important to get them replaced to avoid any further damage. Sometimes the missing or damaged shingles can be replaced, but there are also times when a full roof replacement is necessary.
When in your attic you can see light coming thru.
Gable, soffit and ridge vents all let a minimal amount of light in while they do the job of circulating air in your attic, but if you notice light coming in at other areas, inspect for water damage. If you notice that there is some water damage, it's best to call a roofer to inspect the damages and assess how to proceed.
Your roof is 20 to 30 years old.
If your roof is at least 25 years old, it's probably time to start considering a replacement. A roofing contractor can come out to your home and inspect your roof to determine if it is necessary to replace at that time.
