When a roof begins to age, it will start to display tell-tale signs that it needs to be replaced. Knowing these signs and what to do about them can help you decide when it’s time to speak with a roofing contractor. At Premiere Roofing, we help homeowners in the Dallas area to decide whether their roof needs to be repaired or replaced.
As shingles age, they begin to curl around the edges. When this happens, this can lead to water intrusion under the shingles and in the house. Inspect your shingles on a regular basis. If you can see your shingles curling around the edges, this is a sign that they are nearing the end of their service life.
Indoor leaks can happen for a variety of reasons, but one of the most common reasons for leaks in the home is because of the roof. Leaks that appear near the ceiling, especially on the top floor, are often the result of a problem with the roof. Keep in mind that roof leaks can appear in the walls and may even form puddles on the floor. Water pooling on the floor of your home could be a result of a leak.
As shingles begin to deteriorate, they may be blown off the roof during strong wind storms. After severe storms, check your yard for shingles. If you find debris from your roof scattered around your yard, contact a roofing contractor for help.
Older shingles will shed asphalt granules, which then collect in gutters. When this begins to happen, this is a strong indication that your roof needs new shingles.
To find out whether or not the granules have been falling off of your shingles, use a ladder to climb up the side of your home. Peer into your gutters and look for piles of granules. One or two granules are not necessarily a problem, but large piles are a sign that your roof is nearing the end of its service life.
When inspecting your roof, look for areas where the structure appears to sag. This is a sign of serious water damage and is a strong indication that your roof needs to be completely replaced.
