Top Indicators that It Is Time for a New Roof

Roofs take a beating from Mother Nature and most eventually wear out and need to be replaced. If your roof is getting up there in age, you should pay attention to the signs that it’s time for a replacement. This is the topic of a useful article by Bob at AskARoofer.com entitled 10 Signs You Need a New Roof.

According to the article, some of the indicators you should be looking for include:

  • Obvious leaks or water stains on the ceiling
  • Evidence of dry rot or fungus on the overhangs
  • Missing shingles
  • Rusty valleys and roof flashings
  • Missing granules on asphalt or excessive deposits at down-spout exits

You can learn the other five signs by reading the full article here.

Regardless of whether or not you are noting any signs that a roof replacement may be in order, if your roof is more than 20 years old, it is a good idea to have a roofing expert perform a full roof inspection just to be sure. Small, unnoticed problems now can lead to big, expensive problems later if they are not addressed in a timely manner.
