A roof is something that every home has, but not something that many people think about until it starts to leak. Here at Image Roofing Company, we have been working with residential and commercial roofing materials and services for over 30 years. We understand the different types of materials and what is necessary to give you the highest-quality roof possible. Also, we can spot signs of what could become and cause possible leaks down the road with an existing one. If you are wondering about your own roof, our team is here to help. We know that not everyone knows when they need a new roof, so we have compiled a list of a few signs that might signal the need for roof replacement.

Does Your Home Need a Roof Replacement? Here are Three Ways to Tell.

  1. Significant repairs are needed. Occasionally after a storm or extremely severe winds, there might be some damage to your roof. If you have significant damage or damage over a large percentage of your roof, it might be more cost-effective to consider a roof replacement over making many small repairs.
  2. The lifespan of your roof. Most roofing materials are not going to last indefinitely. Even sturdy materials will eventually need repairs or replacement. If you have a common shingle roof, then the lifespan is only going to be around 15-20 years with proper maintenance. If you notice any of your neighbors are starting to have their roofs replaced, then you might want to consider one as well.
  3. The shingles are curling or cracking. Shingles curling, cracking, or starting to have granule loss or moss growing are all signs of trouble. Believe it or not, moss is very detrimental to the integrity of your roof as well as your brick and mortar. It has roots that get down into the pores of the materials and cause the membrane of the shingles to break down. This in turn will allow moisture to penetrate through the shingles, causing damage to your decking and rafters. This indicates that the shingle material has lost its integrity and won’t be able to protect your home properly.
