4 Signs You Need A New Roof

4 Signs You Need A New Roof

 As a homeowner, maintaining a properly functioning roof over your head is essential. Your roof is what protects you and your home from being exposed to the elements. However, over time, your roof will start to weaken and show signs of wear and tear due to the elements.

It is important to maintain proper upkeep of your home for it to properly protect you. Xterior Pro Roofing wants you to be able to recognize these signs and know when it is time to call in the roofing specialists for a roof inspection, roof repair or roof replacement.

What are the four signs?

Leaks in Your Home

One of the most visible signs regarding the state of your roof are leaks. Moisture marks and peeling paint on your walls or ceilings are all possible indications of a damaged/leaking roof. If your house has an accessible attic, it can also be a good idea to go up there to see whether there are any leaks. 

You may not know what exactly to look for which is why hiring a professional roofing specialist should be your next step. Having a professional roofer perform a basic inspection can save you thousands of dollars in repair costs by spotting minor damages and problem areas beforehand.

Age of Your Roof:

The age of your roof plays a key role in its performance. Asphalt shingles tend to last anywhere from 20-25 years if installed correctly. If you don’t know the age of your roof, another way to determine whether you need a new roof is if you start seeing your neighbors get new roofs. Since most houses are built around the same time, if your neighbors are replacing their roofs, it can indicate that your roof is also reaching its lifespan.

Curled or Missing Shingles: 

The curling of the shingles indicates that it is no longer working properly to protect your home and if left as is will eventually lead to leaks in your home. Curled shingles are also prone to shingle blow-offs during strong winds and storms. In this case it is imperative that you call a roofing contractor to inspect the roof to determine whether a repair or replacement will solve the problem.


Moss On Your Roof:

Seeing moss growth on your roof is not only visually unappealing, but can also indicate an underlying issue. In some cases, the shingles with moss could simply be cleaned and this could solve the problem temporarily. But if left to spread over a period of time this can lead to problems down the road such as permanent staining or leaks.

Having roof inspections and maintaining proper upkeep is important for detecting problems with your roof early on. Ignoring these signs could lead you to major and more expensive repairs in the long run. It is best to call up your local roofer as soon as you see any of these signs.
