6 Signs that You Need a New Roof
6 Ways to See If Need a New Roof
Tell Tale Signs that your roof needs a repair
1. Your Shingles are Starting to Curl or Deform
If your shingles start to have that funny wavy look or their are starting to curl upwards, you'll be needing a repair fairly soon. Your roof is actually quite open. Things like ventilation and cuts in your roofing exist to ensure that your roof doesn't get moldy or damp. But that also means your shingles need to keep water moving down and away from the attic or ceiling.
2. You're Starting to See Cracks
Cracks in shingles are bad for the same reasons that curling is bad. Cracks are inevitably going to allow water to seep into your roof and cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home. It's always easier to fix the roof than it is to fix the ceiling.
3. Shingles are Missing from Your Roof
This might sound obvious to you, but most homeowners rarely inspect their roof. After major storms or even heavy winds, weak shingles can get uplifted from your home. Sometimes, they just deteriorate into small sand-like grains. If you see missing shingles on your rooftop, that's a definite sign you need a new roof - soon.
That's right. Moss can crawl its way onto your roof. The exteriors of your homes are exposed to thousands of complex environments. Bacteria, seeds, moss, mold - you name it, your roof has probably seen it. It's important to take note when that green color starts invading your roof.
5. You've Had a Great Roof
Maybe your roof has lasted a sturdy 10 to 15 years without a single leak. Sounds like you've had a pretty good roof - or maybe you're just living in San Diego. In any case, you're going to still need a new one soon enough. Roofs are like cars, after a certain mileage even the best cars will start to break down.
6. Have Your Neighbors Been Getting New Roofs?
Your neighbors are probably like you - not really excited at the prospect of replacing your roof. But that's why it's important to notice when they do. Their house was likely built around the same time as yours. If they're replacing it, inevitably you will have to do the same thing.
