Shingles Damaged on Roof

Here are 11 surefire signs that it is time to replace your old roof:

 A leak could be a one-time issue, or it could be a sign your roof is aging. Watch especially for leaks around a chimney or other areas that require flashing.

An underperforming roof is one of the biggest reasons energy bills can be too high. And those high bills keep coming, month after month – the losses keep adding up over time.

Ice Dams can happen for several reasons, but the most common is a lack of proper ventilation and/or insulation. If you suffer ice damming, that’s a danger to you and your home. Consider getting a free roof assessment.

 If you notice warped or curled appearance on your roof’s shingles, your roof is likely ready for replacement. 

Don’t ignore missing shingles because that can quickly develop into bigger trouble. The shingles are your first line of defense to protect your home and you don’t want any gaps in that protection.

An attic with proper ventilation will circulate enough air in and out to maintain a temperature roughly the same as outdoors. If your attic is too hot or too cold compared to the outside, that’s a sign that your roof has ventilation problems.

Algae is bacteria that attacks your shingles – it can break down their weatherproofing properties. It also looks terrible. It’s probably time to upgrade and replace your roof.

While some granule loss is inevitable, lots of missing granules are a sign that your roof is old and becoming more vulnerable to leaks. If many or most of your shingles have lost their granular texture, it’s a good idea to call for a free roof inspection.

A roof without proper ventilation will retain too much of the warm moist air that rises to your attic. This in turn can lead to mold and moisture problems that can destroy your roof underlayment and cause mold problems in your home.

Can you see daylight at all through your roof in your attic? This requires immediate attention. Call for a free roof assessment as soon as possible.

Sometimes from the ground it can be hard to see roof problems. And getting up on a ladder is not the safest choice. If your roof is 20 years old or more, it’s probably a good idea to reach out to experts for a free roof assessment – even if you don’t notice any specific problem.

Your roof protects your most important asset. Don’t risk more expensive problems down the road – request a free roof assessment if your roof is showing signs of age.
