We understand that replacing your roof can be a big decision. The financial investment and hassle of speaking with contractors often results in homeowners delaying the process which ultimately can make matters worse for them. But, if you’re truly not sure if you do need a new roof, these are some tell tail signs that you could be ready.
1. Your Roof is Old:
Everything has a shelf life. Of course, the way you manage and maintain your roof will add or remove some years from it’s lifespan but most asphalt roofs last anywhere between 20-25 years. If you’re in this timeline and you notice some of the following issues, it may be time for a new roof.
2. Missing or Damaged Shingles:
If shingles are constantly falling off your roof, it is probably a structural issue.
3. Roof Leak:
This is one of the most common and easy to recognize issues for a homeowner. It is also one of the top things that homeowners don’t delay because they can see the affects first hand. Serious water damage and mold growth can occur with a roof leak.
4. Inconsistent Coloring:
Over time, your roof will start to look old and worn. As tiles start to get worn down and fade, you’ll often notice inconsistent coloring throughout your roof.
