Recognize the Signs of Needing a New Roof Before It’s Too Late

Are you struggling to determine whether it’s time for a roof replacement at your home? If so, it’s important to keep in mind the many warning signs to look for. Don’t wait until water is pouring through the ceiling and you have already amassed massive repair costs. Instead, if you have an older roof, look for some of these common warning signs.

Top 5 Signs You Need a New Roof

1. Daylight is Shining Through Attic Roof Boards

The first aspect to consider is performing an interior roof check by going into your attic and looking for any daylight through the roof boards. If you spot any light coming through your roof, it’s time for a replacement as soon as possible because if light is getting through, so is water. 

2. Significant Signs of Roof Wear & Tear

In addition, from the inside of your home, you’ll be able to look for dark streaks and stains as well as sagging areas. These can be some of the most common signs that you are in dire need of a new roof due to significant indicators of roof damage.

3. Rotting Shingles or Algae on Roof

Additionally, from the exterior of your home, there are many early warning signs you can spot so that the damage won’t ever get that far. If any of your shingles are beginning to rot, grow moss & algae, or decay, it’s likely that they are beginning to show signs of age and will begin to cause damage soon. 

4. Damaged or Missing Roof Shingles

Furthermore, missing, chipped, or broken shingles can be a sign that it’s time for a new roof. If you’ve had a large storm or have an older roof, you can usually see signs of damaged shingles from the ground without having to climb onto the roof for closer inspection.

5. Old Roofs Likely Need Replacement

Finally, one last warning sign  to consider is that any roofs  over 20 years of age are likely to require replacement. Keeping track of the age of your roof can be one of the easiest ways to ensure that your home never experiences moisture damage.
