So, how do you know when your roof is bad? Continue reading to learn about some warning signs that your roof is ready for a repair or replacement.
Missing or Loose Shingles
This is the most obvious sign of a bad roof. Storm damage, high winds, and just general wear and tear can loosen or remove shingles.
Curling, Cracking, Drying, or Blistering Shingles
Shingles begin to show these signs toward the end of their life. Blistering can also occur due to humidity which is the result of poor roof ventilation.
Shingles have granules that fall off as the shingles age, causing your roof to appear darker in some areas. You might find these granules in your gutters. Dark patches could also be a sign of algae or moss growth on your roof.
Your roof is designed to carry a limited weight. If your roof is sagging, then it was possibly installed incorrectly, or it might be supporting too much weight. This is common after snowfall. In any case, a sagging roof is no good and is a clear sign that you need a replacement or repair very soon.
Exposed or Loose Nail Heads
Nails are meant to hold the shingles and roof installation in place. When these nails begin to pop out of place, they leave room for water and moisture to enter, damaging your roof further.
Water Damage in Your Home
You want a good, solid roof so that you do not experience water damage. If you have water leaking into top floors of your home or the attic, then it is very likely that your roof is allowing water penetration. Have this repaired as soon as possible.
Missing or Damaged Flashing
Flashing protects projections through your roof such as chimneys and intersecting walls. If these flashings are missing or damaged, you expose yourself to leaks.
Asphalt shingle roofs will generally last between 20 and 25 years. If your roof is over 20 years old, then it might be a good idea to replace the roof sooner rather than later. Shingles on top of shingles generally need to be replaced sooner.
Higher Heating and Cooling Bills
Quality roofing should improve your building’s insulation. If your heating and cooling bills start to rise, then there might be an issue with your roofing. Granted, there are probably other reasons as well.
