You might be asking yourself, how do I know when it’s time to replace my current shingles? Three main concerns to look for are:
• Age of the Roof: The first issue you need to consider is the age of the roof. If your roof is at least 20 years old, it is most likely time for a new roof. While shingles are produced for durability, there are many factors such as weather that can advance the aging of shingles.
• Curling, Cracking or Lifting Shingles: When shingles have become overexposed to the elements, they will begin to visibly curl or lift allowing moisture to collect. This can potentially create the growth of moss or mold, and even lead to leaking water.
• Missing Shingles: If you are noticing empty areas of shingles on your roof or sunlight shining through your attic, this is usually a sign that you are missing shingles, and the rest of your home and roof are no longer being protected.
• Shingle Granules: Shingles begin to lose granules as their life cycle comes to an end. Older shingles begin to erode or break, and will find their way into your gutters. Check your gutters or property below to look for shingle granules.
