Like the rest of your home’s exteriors, your roofing system will need to be replaced at some point. But how can you tell if it’s time to take on this major undertaking? As one of the top roofing contractors in the area, we recommend you watch out for these four warning signs:
1. Old Age
A well-built asphalt shingle roof should last between 20 to 30 years on average. If it is nearing the end of its lifespan, you’re due to have it replaced. You may notice that it still looks good on the surface, but the internal structure may not be as sound as it used to be.
2. Bald Spots
If you checked your roof recently and noticed bald spots, it means that the asphalt shingles have lost most, if not all, of their protective granules. In addition to having low-quality shingles, balding may also occur because of long-term weather exposure and impact caused by wind-carried debris. Excess granules collecting in your gutters and landscaping means it’s time to have your roof inspected and determine whether it needs replacement.
A drooping or sagging roof is a serious problem that should be addressed as soon as possible. This happens when moisture is trapped in your roof or the boards underneath for a long time. Simple repairs are no longer possible with this kind of issue.
4. Damaged Shingles
Years of exposure to the elements can lead to the deterioration of your asphalt shingles. If you notice signs of buckling, cracking or curling, or if there are missing shingles in a large area of the roof surface, it’s probably time to call Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company.
