When Is It Time to Have Your Roof Replaced?
There are several key signs that indicate a roof replacement is needed. These include:
- Bucking and curling shingles: Warping shingles occur when moisture in the attic causes nails to push out of place. As a result, the loosened shingles’ performance are compromised and the roof is exposed to the elements, which can result in leaks and even more moisture damage.
- Missing shingles: Shingles come loose with age or can blow away in the wind. Missing shingles can allow water into the home, causing expensive water damages.
- Missing granules: Asphalt roofing shingles are made up of small granules. Granule loss is a normal part of wear and tear. However, when a large amount of these granules come loose due to age or weather-impact, it can impact the shingles’ performance. You can locate missing granulates by looking for fragments in the gutter system. If too many granules are lost, shingles will have exposed asphalt layer, commonly referred as “bald” shingles.
- Mold in the attic: This is one of the most concerning aspects of roof replacement because of potential health impacts. Caused by leaks, condensation or improper ventilation, mold forms in areas such as the rafter beams and the plywood on the underside of the roof.
- Algae growth: Overhanging branches, clogged gutters, standing water, a porous roofing material and poor roof ventilation can all cause algae to grow on a roof. The bacteria from the blue-green algae eats through shingles, especially if they are low-cost shingles that are made primarily of limestone.
