Potential signs that your roof may need to be replaced

As a homeowner, we try to be aware of roofing problems before they occur. Many times, a roof will be fully intact throughout their natural useful life, without experiencing a breakdown or failure. We get used to seeing the old and worn look. The problem with that thinking is, it could result in major roof failures down the road. There are warning signs on your roof that tell you it is time to do some maintenance on it. We offer inspection service to help you keep up with your roofs wear and tear issues.

Here are some of the most common roof issues we see with Customer’s roofs:

  • Shingle edges are curled, or shingle tabs are cupped. Cupping or Curling of asphalt roof shingles, particularly on organic or felt-based asphalt shingles, are a normal wear pattern that shows up with shingle age. Eventually, chunks of granules flake away from the mat leaving the asphalt coated mat exposed to the weather. This is a sign you need to consider your roof
  • Bald spots where granules are missing is a definite sign of aging on your roof
  • Cracked shingles. Defective asphalt shingle products of either organic or fiberglass-based shingles may experience several failures including cracking, tearing, granule loss, blistering, etc. So, splits or cracks can occur in both organic-mat based and fiberglass-mat based asphalt roof shingles.
  • Aging Roof- The roof just looks old and worn

Are your neighbors are getting new roofs. In neighborhoods where homes are built around the same time period, similar weather conditions and age can mean you need to consider replacing your roof.
