Damage-Free Property, Part 1: Signs You Need a New Roof

If there’s one thing that decides the longevity of residential roofing, it’s proper maintenance. However, there may be times when the condition of your roofing system will be beyond repair. In such circumstances, you should never procrastinate with replacement procedures. In this first installment of our two-part blog, we’ll discuss the surefire signs that tell you it’s time to get a new roof.

Damage-Free Property

Curling Shingles

Curling, buckling or altogether missing shingles are a red flag that your roof’s at the end of its life. Furthermore, they can be indicative of even more pressing concerns, such as persistent leaks. Have a professional immediately look at your roof so you can prevent water damage to your home’s interior.

Gutter Granules

You don’t always need to check the roof itself for signs of problems. A quick inspection of your gutters can do the trick as well. If you notice a good amount of granules, it means your shingles have degraded considerably, and it’s high time you have your roofing system replaced.


Sagging is an obvious sign of issues. Not only is it an eyesore, but it is also a clear indication of danger. Sagging roofs can cause substantial damage to your home’s structure. If sagging isn’t too noticeable, you should also look for indications of sunlight penetrating through the roof boards. Make sure to replace your roof immediately if you see this.

Roof Age

Lastly, consider your roof’s age. While it’s natural to want to make the most of your investment, an aged roofing system can be a constant source of problems. Replacement is the best option in such cases as even constant maintenance may not be enough.

Stay tuned for the second part of this two-part blog, where we’ll discuss your best choice for your home maintenance needs.
