What are the signs that indicate it's time for a roof replacement?

There are several signs to watch out for that may indicate it's time for a roof replacement. These include:

  • Age: If your roof is approaching or has surpassed its expected lifespan, it may be time for a replacement. Most asphalt shingle roofs last around 20-25 years, while other materials like metal or slate can last much longer.

  • Visible Damage: Inspect your roof for signs of visible damage such as missing, cracked, or curling shingles, as well as sagging or drooping areas.

  • Leaks: If you notice water stains on your ceiling or walls, it could indicate a leak in your roof. Even small leaks can lead to significant water damage if left unaddressed.

  • Granule Loss: Check your gutters for an excessive amount of granules, as this could indicate that your shingles are deteriorating and nearing the end of their lifespan.

  • Mold or Mildew: The presence of mold or mildew on your roof or in your attic can indicate poor ventilation or water damage, both of which may necessitate a roof replacement.

  • Increased Energy Bills: If you notice a sudden increase in your heating or cooling bills, it could be a sign that your roof is no longer providing adequate insulation, leading to energy loss.

If you observe any of these signs, it's essential to consult with us to assess the condition of your roof and determine if a replacement is necessary.
