Even a well-constructed roof will eventually need to be replaced. To prevent your roof from failing prematurely, it’s important to invest in regular maintenance and to stay on top of repairs.
In today’s post, Spicer Bros Construction, Inc., the top roofing company, shares red flags that mean it’s time to replace your roof:
Granules in the Gutters
Granules in asphalt shingles add an extra layer of protection against the sun. If you’re noticing granules in the gutters, your asphalt shingles have been compromised and you need to consider roof replacement. Inconsistent color on some areas of the roof is another indicator the granules have worn away.
Curling and Buckling Shingles
Constant exposure to the elements can cause your asphalt shingles to curl and buckle. This creates gaps for water to leak inside your home. You can fix this issue by replacing the affected shingles, but if the curling and buckling have spread throughout the roof, it may be time to invest in a new roofing system.
Most asphalt shingle roofing systems last between 20 to 25 years. If your roof is at the upper end of this range, you should have it inspected regularly by an experienced professional who can help you determine when the time is right to replace it. If your old roof is damaged, it might be more cost effective to replace it than to pay for repairs.
