Most homeowners do not think about the roof over their head until a leak happens. Each Spring and Fall, homeowners should check and remove leaves and debris from rooftops, drains, gutters, and downspouts. They should also be checking for signs of damage, how extensive it is and whether or not it needs repair or replacement. Below are 5 signs you should replace your roof.
1. Old Roof
The average asphalt shingle roof will last about 15-20 years. Metal or tile roofs tend to have a longer lifespan. If your roof is nearing its typical replacement age, you should start thinking about your next roof. Some telltale signs your roof may need replaced, is if your shingle edges are curled, shingle tabs are cupped, or if your shingles are cracked. If your roof has bald spots where granules are missing, you should look into getting quotes on a new roof.
