Whether you pay attention to the condition of your home or not, it may be time to glance up at your roof. Roofs take a beating, and it may be time for you to have yours replaced. So, do you know what to look for when roof replacement is on your mind? Is it time? How do you know?
2 Warning Signs It’s Time For a Roof Replacement
- Age – How long has your roof been enduring Mother Nature? Has it been 2 years? 5 years? 10 years? 17 years? Believe it or not, an average roof lasts anywhere between 20 to 25 years. However, if you had a roof replacement prior and the previous roofers you hired did not remove the shingles, chances are, you may need a new roof sooner than you had expected.
- Buckling and curling shingles – When you look up at your roof, do you see shingles that lay flat? Or, do you notice shingles buckling and curling? If you notice there are a few, or more than a few, shingles that are either buckling or curling, you may need either roof repair or a full-on roof replacement. When you look for buckling and curling shingles, check the slopes of your home that get the most sun. Roofs that are prone to sunlight all day long are more prone to lose life expectancy than other parts of your roof.
