There’s a reason that having a home is sometimes called “having a roof over your head.” A sturdy roof is essential if you want to remain warm, dry and free of leaks. Though residential roofs generally last several decades, there comes a time in every homeowners life when the roof needs to be replaced. These are some of the signs that it may be time to get rid of your old roof and install a new one on your home.
Shingles that are starting to curl at the corners or that are missing entirely are leaks waiting to happen, especially when they come in clusters. You can replace single shingles here and there, but eventually your roof will start to look more like a collection of patches than a unified whole.
New shingles tend to shed a lot pf granules in the first few weeks, but older shingles should not be losing pieces. An accumulation of shingle granules in the gutter is often an indication that the shingles are suffering from weather damage.
Sunlight coming in through your roof is an urgent indication that you need to replace your roof. If the sun can get in, so can rain or cold. Check from inside your attic where patches of bright light will be most noticeable.
A sagging roof is another indicator that your roof needs to be replaced as soon as possible. This is often an indicator of structural damage to the roof, and if ignored for too long the whole thing may come crashing down on top of you.
