How Do You Determine if Your Roof Needs to Be Replaced?

It can be difficult to determine when it is time for a new roof. Although roofs and shingles can last a lifetime, they will eventually wear out. These are signs that might help you determine if your roof needs replacing.

  1. Your Roof Has Failed a Visual Inspection 

Is your roof looking worn? Are there dark streaks or moss on your roof? These are signs of moisture and can cause damage to your roof. Although this seems like a simple approach, it’s actually quite effective. It is a good idea to inspect your roof for damage after a major storm. Untreated damage will lead to more serious problems later on. 

  1. Your Roof Shingles Are Curling 

Low roof venting and high moisture levels can cause shingles to curl. Your home’s performance is centered around your roof, so if it’s not performing as well as it should. It might indicate that it’s time to replace it.

  1. Roof Granules Are Found in Your Gutter 

It could indicate a larger problem if your roof is less than 10 to 15 years old. Granules protect asphalt from the sun. Fiberglass will quickly deteriorate if it is exposed to UV rays.

If you find yourself in this situation, contact All Star Roofing immediately. You can prevent more damage by getting immediate attention to a damaged roof.

  1. Blatant Cracking or Missing Shines 

Your roof deck is vulnerable to moisture because of a missing or cracked shingle. It can cause serious damage to your home if it is not fixed.
