4 Signs Of An Impending Roof Replacement
According to expert roofers, modern roofs can now last longer compared to older roofs. In fact, most roofing systems nowadays can last for more than 25 years so long as they’re properly installed and well-maintained. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll no longer have to replace your roof. As time goes by, your roof will deteriorate, and, eventually, you’ll need to get a new one for your home. Unfortunately, some homeowners often miss the signs that indicate that their roof needs to be replaced with a new one.
Age is one of the tell tale signs that a roof is close to needing a replacement. As stated before, most roofs can last for more than 25 years if they’re properly cared for and installed. However, past the age of 25 means that the roof is steadily approaching the end of its lifespan, and, as such, you’ll need to start planning for a replacement soon enough.
2. Granules in the Gutters
If your roof is relatively new, and you begin seeing granules in the gutters, don’t worry as these are just excess granules that have come loose. But if your roof is more than a few decades old, this is a sign that it’s in need of a replacement as your roof will steadily deteriorate without these granules.
3. Buckling and Curling Shingles
Expert roofers say that buckling and curling shingles are signs that your roof is beginning to lose its ability to weather out the elements and can put your home at risk of leaks. With that in mind, if you begin to see buckling and curling shingles on your roof, take it as a sign that you’ll need to have it replaced soon.
4. Soft Roof Surface
Finally, if your roof has a strange, spongy feeling when you walk on it, then it means your roof’s underlayment has weakened due to moisture damage. This can cause insulation problems for your home so it’s best that you have the roof replaced soon.
