Have you been driving around and noticing other people in your neighborhood getting new shingles put on their roof? Sometimes seeing a roofing truck driving around town or in your neighbor’s driveway can make you wonder if it might be time for you to replace your roof as well.
Your roof is unique in that you can’t really tell if it’s time to replace it because often it’s difficult to access it and evaluate it. Because of this, it is always best to call a licensed contractor.
Here are a few signs that it might be time for you to replace your roof.
- You’ll want to consider the age of your roof. While some roofs can last between 20 to 25 years. There are many factors that determine how long your roof will last, but it’s probably a good idea to schedule an inspection.
- If you see shingles that are curling or buckling this is a sign that you may need a new roof. Curling and buckling can be a sign of an old roof or a defective roof.
Missing shingles in your roof landscape is a definite sign that you need to consider replacing your roof.
- Hail damage could be is a top sign that your roof may need to be replaced. Some hail damage indicators are bruising to shingles, circular cracking, granules missing from asphalt or damage to the soft metal on your roof.
- Wind damage is also another common cause for a roof needing to be replaced. Some signs of wind damage include detached shingles and creased shingles that have been pushed back by high winds.
