Residential roofing authority, Universal Roofing and Exteriors, offers expert residential roof replacement services to homeowners in Indiana. Today, we discuss the four major signs of damage to help you plan for your roof replacement ahead of time.
1. Curling and Cupping
The first sign to watch out for is curling or cupping at the edge of your shingles. This occurs when shingles become weathered for an extended period of time. If this issue is isolated to a small part of the roof, it can typically be addressed through repairs. However, if a large portion of your roof is starting to show these symptoms, it indicates that your roof is at the end of its lifespan. At this point, roof replacement should be a priority.
2. Finding Granules in the Gutter
Finding granules in the gutter is a huge concern, since it means your roof’s protection is starting to deteriorate. Granules protect your shingles against the sun, so without them, your roof will lose its ability to reliably protect your home from water damage. Contact us immediately when you encounter this problem so we can start planning your roof replacement.
3. Sagging Roof
If your roof develops a depression or a droop, then it’s time to contact an expert. Roof sagging is often caused by structural problems found in the decking of your attic, which is why it’s important to get it fixed quickly. Prevent this problem from escalating by scheduling roof repair as soon as possible.
4. Your Roof Is Old
Sometimes, the only sign you need is your roof’s age. Asphalt shingle roofs typically last 20-30 years, while metal roofing systems can last up to 50 years. If your roof is at the end of its projected lifespan, it’s a good idea to start planning for a roof replacement.
