It’s important to keep your roof in shape so that it lasts for a while. Your roof may have a few signs that are saying it’s time to get a new roof. Here’s a list of signs to look for:
- Roof age: A typical roof lasts from 20-25 years. If your roof is older than that, look into replacing your roof. If you don’t know the age of your roof, look around your neighborhood to see if their roofs are being replaced. Houses in the same neighborhood are typically built around the same time.
- Curled shingles: If your shingles are curling, that is a sign that they’re exceeding their life expectancy. This could also be a sign of a defect. Contact a roofing company as soon as possible.
- Missing Shingles: If shingles are falling off the roof, that is a sign that they’re life is up and that it is time to invest in a new roof.
- Leaks: Even if you have a small leak, contact a roofing company as soon as possible. Leaks can lead to moss and algae on your roof and can cause mold and rotting.
