5 Signs You Need a New Roof
Just because you do not have visible water getting into your house, doesn’t mean you don’t need a new roof. Here are 5 signs that your roof needs to be replaced.
Shingles are missing- Missing shingles means that the roof deck and your house are not fully protected. Without shingles properly installed, your roof is prone to leak.
Shingles are missing granules- While the shingles are still on your roof, the missing or corroding of granules means that the shingles have outlasted their warranty. They will not properly protect your home as the granules are key to keeping water from entering the roof decking. If you find granules in your gutters, or notice that they are missing granules, it is time to get a new roof.
Curling and Bubbling shingles- One or two curling or bubbling shingles does not necessarily mean that your entire roof needs to be redone. You may just need a repair in that case. However, if there are many spots on your roof where there are curling or bubbling shingles, you may need a new roof.
Large amounts of moss- Built up moss most likely means that water from your roof is not properly running off. Moss holds in moisture, as well as blocks the run off. A large amount of moss that has been on your roof for a long period of time means its time for a new roof.
Age of roof- Is your roof over 20 years old? Are your neighbors getting new roofs? It is best to replace your roof before there are extreme signs of wear and tear. This way you can prevent leaks and water damage to your home.
