How Do I Know I Need a New Roof?

A lot of different scenarios will show a homeowner whether it is time to replace your roof or not. Please remember, if it is not safe to do so, do not go on your roof! (Call a professional for a roof inspection if your roof pitch is too steep)

It’s important to catch damages and a worn out roof early to prevent further and extensive damage to your attic and even possibly your home. Contact us today to have your roof inspected. Let’s take a look at a worn-down roof.

Key pointers:

  • Shingles are lifting and flaring upwards
      • This is usually caused by strong winds and storms
  • Missing shingles
      • Strong storms or improper previous installation
  • Exposed underlayment
      • Due to the missing shingles
  • Uneven fading of color
      • In the North East, we get very cold and very hot temperatures
  • Cracking and torn apart shingles
  • Hail marks on the shingles
      • Hail marks can be seen on a shingle by its missing granules of asphalt
  • Unreasonable bending of shingles
      • Bending of shingles can be caused by improper ventilation of your attic
      • It’s important to identify the cause of the problem to prevent it from happening on your newly installed roof.
  • Wear & Tear
    • Simply shingles won’t last forever. It’s important to know that natural wear and tear will change the expected life of the roof.
