Signs You Need Roof Replacement That You Could Be Missing

Signs you need roof replacement that you could be missing

It's important to keep track of the age of your roof, whether you're the first owner of a home or the third generation. However, even a newer roof can experience problems that are beyond repairs and require replacement. Although we hope that doesn't happen, as industry experts here at Auchly Roofing, we want our customers to be informed property owners, so they're aware of the red flags that mean it's time for roof replacement.

What Is Your Roof Trying To Tell You?

Any reputable St. Charles roofing contractor can tell you that the average lifespan for an asphalt shingle roofing system is approximately 20 years. Of course, this depends on the quality of the materials used, the skill level of the installation team, and how well it's maintained during the course of those two decades. And, if you have a different type of roofing system, you can expect greater longevity.

However, a diligent homeowner also knows to be on the lookout for signs of problems that could mean the roof needs replacement, or at least an inspection and possible repairs.

  • Age - Know what type of roof you have and what the life expectancy is for that material. Increase the frequency of roof inspections as that deadline draws closer.
  • Moss Growth - Although most homeowners assume the presence of moss is merely a cosmetic issue, the development and growth of moss can cause significant damage to your roof.
  • Cracks, Curling, Balding - Become aware of issues you can see that indicate you could have serious roof problems.
  • Storm Damage - Even a brand new roof can be destroyed by a single weather event, especially if hail is involved.
  • Tree Branches - Failure to prune trees near the home can lead to limb growth or branch collapse that can seriously harm the integrity of your rooftop.
