A roof can occasionally reach the end of its life without some major disaster to help it along. The roof could simply appear worn out and old, with its replacement as preventative maintenance for your home. If you neglect to replace your roof, however, you can expect bigger problems in the future. Watch for these warning signs, and when they begin to appear, schedule an appointment to discuss a new roof with Family Roofing.
Potential Signs That You Need A New Roof
Shingles: Several signs can become apparent with your shingles. If they appear curled, cupped, or cracked, it could be time to replace your roof. Also, missing shingles serve as an obvious sign that your roof has reached the end of its life.
Age: Once any roof hits 20 years of age, it deserves a careful inspection. While many shingles should last longer than this, factors such as incorrect installation can accelerate their age.
Neighbors: If you notice that your neighbors have begun to get new roofs, you need to take a hard look at your own. Homes in a neighborhood tend to have gotten built around the same time. If your neighbors’ roofs need replacement, yours might as well.
Moss: Over the years, moss can begin to appear on roofs. This can especially become a problem for homes in cooler, moist climates. The moss will trap moisture against your roof, which damages the shingles. While moss can get brushed away, it will likely grow back.
