If you have a roof that is leaking, looks outdated or showing signs of damage, you can count on a reliable roofing contractor like Earl W. Johnston Roofing, LLC to perform a thorough assessment of your system and determine the most cost-efficient solution. Cleaning and repairing your roof may help restore it to its original condition, but there are times when a full roof replacement makes perfect sense.
But how can you tell if your roof is due for a replacement? Here are four signs:
1. Your roof is nearing 25 years. If your roof’s age is 20 to 25 years, then it’s time to replace it. Even if it looks good on the outside, there may be underlying issues that cannot be seen unless you remove or replace your roof. These issues can also create big problems for the structure of your home if left unattended. So, before it reaches year 25, make sure to have your roof replaced.
2. Your shingles are curling. A thorough inspection will show whether or not your asphalt shingles are curling. If this is seen on your roof, then time and the harsh elements have already started to deteriorate your shingles. Make sure to replace your roof as soon as possible when you notice this since it can lead to leaks and other problems.
3. Many shingles are missing. Many homeowners simply decide to replace shingles if they become loose or are missing. However, this does not address the reasons why your shingles are getting loose. If your roof is starting to have big areas without shingles, then it’s best to replace it as a whole. This way, your professional roofer will also identify any problems that may cause the shingles to go missing and address them before placing your new roof.
4. You find granules in your gutters. The presence of granules in your gutters or on the floor by the downspout is also an indication your roof is due for a replacement. Eventually, the quality of your shingles will deteriorate until it can no longer protect your home against different weather conditions.
