Know the Signs of a Roof In Trouble


Asphalt shingles are a common roofing material that can last for up to 20-30 years with proper maintenance. However, after a certain point, they may become worn out and need replacement. There are several signs that indicate it’s time to replace your asphalt shingles. One or two problem areas may indicate that some shingles need to be replaced. But widespread issues indicate the need for a full replacement.

One of the most obvious signs is when you notice that your shingles are curling or buckling. This happens when the shingles have become old and are no longer able to lay flat on the roof. It is an indication that your shingles are losing their ability to protect your home from water damage and other weather elements.

Another indication that it’s time to replace your asphalt shingles is when you notice that some of the shingles are missing. This may happen due to wind damage, aging, or poor installation. Missing shingles expose your roof to the elements and can lead to water damage, mold growth, and other problems.

If you notice that your shingles have started to develop cracks or splits, it’s also a sign that they need replacement. Cracks or splits are typically caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight and weather elements, which can make the shingles brittle and prone to damage. As a result, they become less effective at protecting your home and can even cause leaks if not addressed in time.

Lastly, if you notice that your roof is losing granules, it’s a sign that your shingles are deteriorating. Granules are the small, pebble-like pieces that cover the surface of the shingles and protect them from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Over time, these granules can start to wear off, leaving your shingles exposed to the elements. If you notice granules in your gutters or around your downspouts, it’s a good indication that your shingles need replacement.
