An asphalt roof can last for 25 years, but some roofs start to fail sooner. Learn the top warning signs your roof needs repair, so you can take care of things before the roof fails.
Damaged or Missing Shingles
After a major storm, it’s not uncommon to see debris in the yard from shingles that came loose in high winds. The shingles on your roof work together to protect your home, and when shingles go missing the system could be compromised. By replacing missing and damaged shingles, you can prevent water damage in the roofing system.
When your shingles start to deteriorate, they are no longer able to perform as intended. Water can seep in around deteriorating and cracked shingles. When water gets into your roofing system or attic, it’s only a matter of time before mold and mildew follow. Save yourself the costs of mold mitigation by reaching out to a professional roofer if you notice any of the following signs of deteriorating shingles:
- Cracked shingles
- Curled shingles
- Buckling shingles
- Torn shingles
- Shingle granules in the gutter
While some roofs do outlast the 25-year lifespan, we recommend that you have an older roofing system checked out. A professional roofer can evaluate your roof’s integrity, estimate its remaining useful life, and help you plan for replacement. It’s less of a strain when you have time to prepare than when you it comes as an unexpected emergency expense.
When your roof is leaking, it’s serious. Signs of a leaky roof include discoloration on walls and ceilings, peeling paint or wallpaper, and drips. Get help before there’s a crisis.
