Is It Time to Get a New Roof?
Unfortunately, roofs don’t last forever. So if you live in a house long enough, sooner or later you’ll need to replace it.
Your roof takes a lot of abuse while protecting your home from the elements, it’s exposed to wind, rain, snow, heat from the sun and freezing temperatures.
In its efforts to keep the outside out, it’s understandable that it will wear out.
If your home is roofed with asphalt shingles ( which is a common roofing product), you know that it will last between 8 to 10 years, maybe a little more, maybe a little less.
When is it time to replace your roof?
Your roof will let you know when the time has come for a new roof, because there are visible signs:
- Broken, cracked or missing shingles
- As the granules on your roof become degraded and fall away, dark patches appear
- Shingle granules in your rain gutters
- Shingles with curled edges or blisters
- Water leaking into your home
- Light showing through the roof
- A sagging roof deck
