Signs You Need A New Roof

There are many things to look for as signs you need a new roof aside from a complete roof failure. If your Shingles are missing or curled, there is moss and mold growth on your roof, if your gutters are clogged, and ultimately your roof’s age.

If you decide to delay a roofing replacement for too long, it could result in bigger problems down the road. So look for these warning signs to be sure to higher a roofing replacement professional. For help with your re-roof project, Call Gutter Junkies and Vensel Construction for professional roofing experts in Louisville, Kentucky and Surrounding areas.

Potential Signs That Your Roof Needs Replaced or is Near Replacement:

Missing & Curled Shingles: Roof shingles beginning to curl are another sign that you may need a new roof. If you go outside and look up at your roof, notice if any of the shingles are curling and losing granules. This could mean the shingles are past their life expectancy. It could also be another issue. Call a roofing professional like Gutter Junkies!

Moss & Mold Growth: Plant life should never be growing from your roof. The moss and mold will hold moisture on the roof longer than other areas, these growths can reduce the life of the roof covering. If you start to see any moss or mold you should call a professional immediately.

Clogged Gutters: If you have clogged gutters this can be a big contributor to roof deterioration. We recommend getting your gutters serviced twice a year to keep them from getting obstructed causing water from pooling on your roof. This can lead to leaks or other foundation issues. If you start to see pieces of your shingles broken into your gutters when you clean them, this is a very good indication you need a new roof!

Age: Age matters when considering a full roof replacement. Typically, a roof can last anywhere from 20 to 60 years, depending on its material. Shingles have a typical shelf life of about 20 years. After this they will start to curl up along the edges. This could be an indication of a ventilation issue. If you do not own your house, you can look back in your home inspection information to check and see how old your roof is.
