How do I know I need a new roof?


Sometimes a roof can naturally reach the end of its useful life without experiencing a roof failure. It just looks old and worn, and you are doing preventive maintenance on your home.

If replacing an old roof is delayed, however, it could result in bigger problems down the road. So, watch for the warning signs to be sure to give yourself plenty of time to add the project to your to-do list.

6 Potential Signs That Your Roof May Need To Be Replaced:



  1. Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped

  2. Bald spots where shingles are missing.

  3. Cracked shingles.

  4. Your roof is at least 20 years old; while many shingles today are produced for durability, many factors can accelerate the aging of shingles.

  5. The roof just looks old and worn.

  6. Neighbors are getting new roofs. Homes built around the same time period can be experiencing the same types of weather conditions can mean that your roof is nearing its useful life.

  7. Dark streaks. Airborne algae cause dark streaks on roof decks. While this may not necessarily harm the roof shingles, it may not look good.
