8 Warning Signs That You Need A New Roof
We’ve come to accept the fact that roofs just don’t get the love and attention they deserve. Sure, not everybody is going to be quite as fond of roofs as we are here at Community Roofing, but all too often these important structures go ignored for far too long.
Many homeowners will wait until the last minute before calling a roofing professional. Oftentimes they ignore warning signs until it’s just too late and they’ve incurred devastating damages that will burn a hole in their wallet.
While there are numerous warning signs that may indicate you need a new roof, it’s important that you know what to look for to protect you and your home. We’ll break down the 8 most common issues we’ve seen over the years in this post.
1. Roofing Age
Generally speaking, most residential roofs will last around 20-25 years. The exact life expectancy of your roof will depend on various factors such as shingle quality, craftsmanship during installation, and the weather conditions your roof has been subject to over the years. All that said, if your roof is turning 20 years old, it may be time for a new installation.
2. Curled Or Cracked Shingles
Your shingles will start to show signs of old age by curling up, starting to crack, or buckling. If you do a quick inspection of your roof and see shingles are peeling back from the surface of the roof or you notice several shingles are beginning to crack and deteriorate, this is a good indication that your roof may be in need of a replacement.
