Sometimes, it’s difficult for homeowners to tell when it's time to take that bold step from persistent repairs to full roof replacement. Either they are intimidated by the huge financial requirements of installing a new roof or can't decode the aging signs when they see them. Don't hesitate to contact a proven roofing contractor to evaluate your roof and determine the ideal line of action. In the meantime, we’ve outlined the top eight signs that indicate it's time for a new roof.
Even though there would be a slew of signs that your roof is due for replacement, the roof’s age remains the ultimate factor. If your roof has outlived its lifespan, it's not very cost-effective to keep patching things up because those faults will keep coming.
If your roof keeps leaking from different spots despite your contractor’s efforts, it’s likely an indication of underlying structural damage. To avoid further damage to your ceiling, walls and other parts of your home, it’s best to ask an experienced roofer to evaluate the roof and determine whether a replacement is the final bus stop.
If your roof is Sagging, it could result from deteriorated roofing materials, weak support structures or severe water damage. Either way, an uneven roof deck is a problem that demands immediate professional inspection. Most cases involving a sagging roof deck translate to full or partial roof replacement.
Granules protect your shingles from ultraviolet rays. Seeing significant amounts of these granules as sand-like particles in the gutter and downspout could be a bad sign.
The buildup of mold and moisture in your attic clearly indicates that your attic is not properly ventilated. If you notice these signs early enough, prompt repairs will avert serious damages that could lead to full roof replacement.
Missing shingles are signs you should never overlook. If it becomes a frequent phenomenon even after multiple repairs, it could mean the time has come for a replacement. Buckled shingles are often caused by excess moisture in your attic.
If water leaks around your chimney, it's a sign of faulty flashing and should be treated seriously. If the flashing fails beyond repair, a roof change is imminent.
When you notice an increase in energy consumption, your roofing system could be responsible. Roof insulation reduces heat transfer and works with attic ventilation to regulate your building’s temperature. If either of these two is insufficient, energy consumption increases.
These signs may not necessarily mean your roof is due for replacement.
