Do I Need A New Roof?
If your roof isn’t showing damage, do you still need a new one? Sometimes it will need to be replaced simply because it’s old. You may not be able to visibly tell the signs right away, but over time, a roof can show signs of needing repair. We all know the importance of having a good, solid roof over our heads. But what you may not know is that over time, roof’s can begin to wear down and show signs of aging.
Over time, you will need a new roof if it is over 20 years old. Especially if it is made from shingles. Shingles are durable, but factors can contribute to their wear and tear. Wind and rain alone, wear down shingles causing granules to begin to wear down and produce bald spots. The sun can create cracks or cause shingle edges to curl or cup.
Also, if your roof does not receive enough sunlight you may need to replace it if moss begins to grow. A cool, moist climate is ideal for moss to grow in. Moss holds moisture and can cause damage to the granules, eventually leading to leaks in the roof and decay of the shingles themselves.
