Three Signs Indicating It Is Time For A Roof Replacement

Your roof is probably a part of your home that you don't think about a lot. This makes sense since you rarely have issues with it, but it is something that you want to take care of before it is too late, meaning roof repairs are cheaper than having it completely replaced.

Eventually, you are going to have to have your roof replaced. Time will take its toll on even the most durable roofs. While replacement is unavoidable, it is better to be prepared for it and get it done before it is a major emergency. When you are prepared for a roof replacement it is more simple and less expensive, so here are three signs indicating it is time for a roof replacement.

1. It's old - How long have you lived in your house? If it's been more than 10 years, now is the time to have it looked at by a professional. This is the time when most roofs start to have problems. If your roof is over 20 years old, it's time to replace it. Even if it seems fine, something could happen at any time because of its advanced age.

2. It feels spongy when you walk on it - Definitely get your roof check out if you walk on it and it feels spongy in certain areas. This usually means the roof is taking on moisture in certain areas. When this happens, moisture can build in the pad of the roof and cause the attic to get too damp, leading to mold and other build up.

3. Shingle quality - Check your shingles from time to time to see what condition they are in. If they are cracking or breaking, it could be a sign that your roof is going bad. There is definitely a serious issue if there are shingles missing in certain areas of your roof. Another good place to check is in the gutter. If you see shingle dust or small pieces of the material in the gutter, there could be a problem.
