Many homeowners leave home improvement projects until the last possible moment or until something serious occur with their home. This typically means some leaks or other damage to occur before a homeowner begins to look into replacing an area of their home. Because homeowners wait until the last minute, they are unable to do their homework and forced into the first sale that comes along. However, if homeowners look for signs throughout their home, they will have the time to conduct their research and successfully complete their home improvement projects. One home improvement project that is consistently overlooked is a new roof. Homeowners tend to keep their roof until the experience some water damage in their attic. Homeowners should instead be mindful of these following signs that a new roof should be in their future.
Shingle Buckle or Curl – If your shingles begin to curl up and away from your roof, they are starting to show their age. This is the first major sign that your roof is reaching a point that it needs to be replaced.
Age – Generally speaking, a properly installed roof should last a home about 25 years. Once the roof reaches 30 and more, you are running the risk of deterioration from the elements. Also, new shingles that have been placed atop older shingles will also decrease the overall life of your roof.
Granules – If you begin to notice large amounts of granules from your shingles within your gutters, you should start to consider a new roof for your home.
Missing – Shingles that are missing from your roof are sure signs of needing a new roof for your home. Shingles that easily blow off are showing their age and deterioration from the time and elements.
Sunlight – If you can see rays of sun in your attic, you should begin to consider a new roof.
