Proper roof installation ensures you have a roof that lasts for several years. But upon reaching 15-20 years, expect your roof to develop some problems as it will likely have suffered wear due to years of being exposed to the elements.
In this post, seasoned roofers at 4U Roofing enumerate the signs you need a new roof.
If your attic has suffered from severe water damage, it could mean your roof system is compromised. To know for sure, head up to your attic and illuminate the area with a flashlight. Check for stains and streaks that could indicate water damage. If you see light beams entering your attic on a sunny day, your roof likely has gaps where water could leak.
Old roofs eventually show signs of deterioration. Observe your roof and watch out for curling and cracking. It helps to know your roof’s age so you can prepare for roof replacement. You can check your purchase receipt or warranty coverage to find out when your roof was installed.
Cracked and Buckling Shingles
Asphalt shingles must have no visible cracking and buckling. If you see these in large areas of your roof from the curb, you might only have a few more years until the entire roof needs replacements. For an accurate assessment, consult reliable roofing contractors and make sure your roof is properly inspected.
Shingle granules protect the roof from the sun and other elements. Over time, shingles lose these granules due to age or exposure to extreme weather events. If you see your gutters and downspouts filled with shingle granules, your roof is near the end of its lifespan.
