Signs of Roof Failure or Leak

Signs your roof needs replacing

You might need roof replacement when you notice any of the following:

  • Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped 
  • Bald spots where granules are missing 
  • Cracked shingles
  • Your roof is at least 20 years old 
  • Your roof is not properly ventilated
  • Your roof simply looks old and worn 
  • Dark streaks 
  • Moss growth  

Some issues, such as moss growth, may or may not be more than a cosmetic issue. Moss holds moisture against the roof surface and over time in freezing climates can cause damage to the granules on the top of the shingles.

Diagnosing roof issues

Our experienced team can take a look at your roof to determine the extent and cause of damage and recommend an appropriate plan of action. Some types of damage can be repaired simply, buying you several more years before replacement will be needed. However, if damage involves the deeper structure of your roof, we may recommend a full replacement. In that case, we can advise you on the best type of roof for your home, your budget, and your future plans.
