CRACKED OR DAMAGED SHINGLES
You should inspect the condition of your roof’s shingles to check for any cracks or buckles. Loose or damaged shingles can often indicate an aging roof. If you see shingles that are cracked, damaged, buckling, or lacking granules, it’s a sign that your roof may need to be replaced.
DAMAGED INTERIOR CONDITION
While checking the exterior of your roof for damage is necessary, you also need to look inside. Look for stains or light coming through your attic or crawl space to see if there’s any interior damage to your ceiling. This could be a sign of a leaky roof. And if there’s a breeze in your attic, it could mean your roof isn’t properly secure.
Leaking is often the first sign that your roof needs replacing. If you notice discoloration on your ceiling, there may be moisture leaking from your roof. Leaky roofs can lead to water damage or mold in your home. Call a roofing company as soon as you notice any leaks or moisture on your ceiling in order to prevent more extensive damage.
DATE OF LAST REPLACEMENT OR RESHINGLING
You should also check when your roof was last replaced or re-shingled. Depending on the roof’s materials, the typical lifespan of a roof should be between twenty and twenty-five years, but different types of roofs have different lifespans. Make sure you check the date of the last replacement to see if your roof is overdue for re-shingling or replacing. An old roof can lead to problems such as leaks or buckling, so it’s crucial to check the age of your roof.
