As a homeowner, you know that it’s not a matter of if you’ll need to replace your roof but when. This looks different for every home, so we’ve put together a list of some signs that you might need to replace your roof in the near future:
- Water damage and leaks—A leaking roof is a major sign that, at the very least, you need to get your roof fixed. Even a small leak can turn into a larger one over time, resulting in the need for a replacement.
- A sagging ceiling—A sagging ceiling could mean there is moisture building up in your roof that hasn’t been identified. Call us as soon as possible if you notice your ceiling sags in certain spots.
- Old age—Most residential roofs will last around 20 years. If your roof is reaching or past this age, plan for a replacement.
- Dark streaks—Staining and dark streaks on your ceiling are a sign there’s moisture coming through from your roof.
- Decaying shingles—When your shingles have reached the end of their useful life, they will start to decay and become brittle, curled, and cracked in large chunks.
- Wind or hail damage—A major wind or hailstorm can rip shingles off of your roof. If the damage is extensive, you may want to consider replacing the entirety of your roof.
- Missing shingles—If your roof is missing shingles, it’s not providing your home with adequate protection. Plan your roof replacement to prevent leaks and other problems with your roof.
