Age Of The Roof
A typical asphalt shingle roof can last between 20 and 25 years. If your roof is approaching or has surpassed this age range, it’s time to start considering a replacement.
Curling Or Buckling Shingles
If the shingles on your roof are starting to curl or buckle, it could be a sign that they are nearing the end of their lifespan. This can happen due to exposure to the elements over time, and it can also indicate that your roof is not properly ventilated.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
If you notice that there are missing or damaged shingles on your roof, it’s a good sign that it’s time for a replacement. Damaged or missing shingles can expose your roof to leaks and other damage, which can be costly to repair.
Granules In The Gutters
If you notice a large number of granules in your gutters, it’s a sign that your shingles are starting to deteriorate. The granules are designed to protect the shingles from UV damage and other wear and tear, and their presence in your gutters indicates that the shingles are losing this protective layer.
Water Stains or Leaks
If you notice water stains or leaks in your home, it’s a clear sign that your roof is no longer doing its job of protecting your home from the elements. This can be a sign of damage to the shingles, flashing, or other components of your roof.
