How To Know When It's Time To Replace Your Roof

Roof replacement time

The roof is expected to perform many functions: it should protect you and everything inside the house from the elements. It also suffers the most from different weather conditions and, just like everything else, it ages. Read more to find out if you need to perform a roof replacement on your home.

The Shingles Are Curling

These could lead to leaks, which could lead to worse damage. Look at your shingles: depending on how "curly" they are, you have from a year to three years before you need to replace the roof.

Signs Of Leakage

Of course, if you see a leak you do not have to replace the whole roof. However, it's one of the main signs that your roof is worn out and needs your attention. One leak is not a big problem if you take care of it quickly, but if you don't repair your roof for a couple of months, you'll have to deal with more severe damage. Leaks reduce the lifespan of the roof; besides, they are the grounds for mold and bacteria.

Streaking Mold

Do you have plenty of dark, streaky lines or green patches on your roof? If you do, this is the time to replace your roof. These spots and lines are the results of algae, moss, mold, and fungus that are attacking your roof.

You Can See Sunlight From Your Attic

You do not need a professional roofing contractor to tell you this is not a good sign! If you can see sunlight through your attic, it means that rain and snow will also get in. Check for water stains. If you do not want to replace the roof straight away, watch leaks over several rainfalls and if water stains change in size, you've got a problem.
