Top 10 Signs Your Roof Needs Replacement

Jun 10, 2024

Considering how important of a role your roof plays in protecting you and your loved ones—in addition to completing the overall structure of your home and contributing a great deal to curb appeal—you can’t afford to ignore the signs that it’s time for a replacement. Now, in some cases, you may be able to get by with some repairs, and in other situations, you may need to schedule an inspection to see what the best next step is. But there are some signs you’ll begin to notice when the time for a roof replacement is near. Here are 10 indicators that you’ll need to start thinking about investing in a new roof:

1.     Your Roof Is Nearing the End of Its Lifespan

This is perhaps one of the simpler signs, as no roof is built to last forever. Of course, some materials provide far superior longevity than others, but you’ll eventually need a roof replacement. If you know the roof on your home was installed decades and decades ago, you’ll likely want to be conscious of it as the system may begin experiencing more frequent problems. When that happens, it’s time to upgrade to a new one.

2.     Your Shingles Are Curling or Buckling

This is another sign that’s pretty easy to spot, as you’ll notice that your home’s curb appeal is beginning to take a hit due to curling or buckling shingles. This is a sign of age and wear and tear from weather conditions, but it can also be the result of excess heat and moisture being trapped in your attic. In either case, you’ll want to consider your roof replacement options.

3.     Your Roof Is Sagging

If you’ve noticed that your roof is beginning to sag, that’s an indication that the overall structure has been weakened over time. Considering how important it is to maintain the structural integrity of your home, this is another problem that can be a telltale sign that it’s time for a new roof.

4.     Your Roof Has Been Damaged

This is perhaps another majorly obvious sign, as any storm damage to your roof that puts it in a condition that’s beyond repair will be cause for a roof replacement. As a homeowner in Florida or Georgia, you’ll want to have regular roof inspections so that you’ll know how well your roof will be able to withstand the severe conditions that come from summer storms and hurricane season.

5.     You’re Constantly Dealing With Roof Leaks

A random leak here and there may not be cause for a full-scale roof replacement, as simple repairs should be able to take care of the problem. However, if you’ve noticed that those leaking problems are becoming more and more frequent, it may soon be time for you to invest in a roof replacement.

6.     You Have a Lot of Missing or Broken Shingles

Age, wear and tear, and severe weather can be the culprit of missing or broken shingles. While one or two here and there can lead to the need for roof repairs, having several shingles that are missing or broken may be a sign that it’s time for a new roofing system.

7.     Algae & Moss Are Growing On Your Roof

The growth of algae or moss on your roof isn’t inherently a sign that you need a completely new roof, but over time, algae can cause the protective UV granules on your shingles to wither away. That will ultimately dry out your roof and can potentially lead to more costly problems.

8.     Granules Are Beginning to Fill Your Gutter

Speaking of granules, it’s natural for them to fall away and sometimes trickle into your gutter. That’s a normal sign of wear and tear, but when you’re noticing that significant amounts of granules are falling into your gutter or littering the ground outside your home, that may be a sign that your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan.

9.     You’re Noticing Moisture Damage Inside Your Home

Small amounts of moisture can lead to the warping and bending of your roof, while mor moisture can cause rot. It works the other way, too, as finding moisture inside your home could be a sign that you have a leaking roof or something is structurally wrong with your home.

10.Your Energy Bills Are Rising

There can be a variety of reasons why your energy bills might increase, but if you know it’s not your windows, doors, or siding, it may be that your roof’s energy efficiency isn’t where it once was and your system isn’t providing the insulation that it’s supposed to.
