6 Signs Your Roof May Need To Be Replaced:

  1. Shingle edges are curling or cup-shaped.

  2. Bald spots – granules on the shingle can become loose or missing over time, contributing to leaks and un-secure shingles.

  3. Cracked shingles- cracked shingles can become loose and brittle over time causing leaks and damage due to wind.

  4. Your roof is roughly 20 years old - Shingle technology today is much more advanced than in the past and many are produced with excellent durability. Many factors such as age can take their toll on shingles. For example, proper roof ventilation is critical and if your roof is NOT well ventilated, it can cause damage to shingles.

  5. New roof around the neighborhood?  Homes built around the same time period can be experiencing the same types of issues due to weather conditions, materials used etc. and can mean that your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan.

  6. Moss or algae- moss and algae can grow on roof surfaces which are not in direct sunlight.  Cool, moist climates will accelerate the growth on your roof. Moss growth not only looks bad but can cause much bigger problems. Moss retains moisture directly on the roof surface and over time can cause damage to the granules of the shingles. You may need to contact a professional roofing contractor. If attempting to “clean” the moss off your roof, its very easy to damage the shingle itself.
