Signs You Need a Roof Replacement

Signs You Need a Roof Replacement

Sturdy roofs can last for decades with proper installation and maintenance. However, as time passes, they will inevitably suffer from wear and tear due to their consistent exposure to the elements. 

In this post, Krech Exteriors shares the signs that will you that it’s time to replace your roof.

Leaks in the Attic

The condition of your attic will give you a clue about your roof’s health. Using a flashlight, look for beams of light, stains and streaks in your attic. These could indicate that your roof suffered water damage. If the water stains look old, the leaks could have been happening for a long time and may have damaged wooden components.

Roof Age

The older a roof gets, the more it becomes susceptible to damage. You can check your warranty to learn about your roof’s current age and expected lifespan. On average, a typical asphalt shingle roof can last for 20 to 25 years until it needs a replacement.

Worn or Damaged Shingles

You’ve seen your asphalt shingle roof from the curb many times. It should look even without visible cracks or buckling. Call your roofing contractor for an assessment if you notice your shingles have started to curl, crack or split. 

Granule Loss

Excessive loss of granules is another indicator of an aging asphalt roof. If your gutters and downspouts are filled with shingle granules after a storm, it means your roof is reaching the end of its lifespan.

Sagging

Sagging indicates that your roof has severe structural issues that need immediate repairs. It could also mean that your attic might have rotted sheathing and rafters. These components must be replaced before a roofer can install new asphalt shingles.
