Are you unsatisfied with the way your roof looks? Does it seem like your roof is discolored or dilapidated? If these questions have ever popped into your head, you may be wondering if it’s time to replace your shingles. Here are the red flags to look for if this is a concern of yours.
Worn Shingle Edges
Roof shingles should be smooth and lie flat on the roof. This not only gives your roof a polished look, but it also forms a protective seal. If you notice that the shingles on your roof are curled, bumpy looking or cupped this might indicate a problem. Some factors that may cause shingles to shift include the age of the roof, the temperature or the overall condition of the roof. Occasionally, the shingles will fix themselves and smooth out, but if not then professional repairs are necessary.
When roof shingles are cracked, this is called “thermal splitting”. This happens mostly from higher temperatures and can result in serious damage to your roof. These cracks and fissures make your home more susceptible to leaks, which may lead to considerable water damage.
Your Roof is Really Old
If you haven’t had any work done on your roof for 20 years or more, you should seriously consider replacing your shingles. There may be damaged spots that aren’t visible to the untrained eye. Even small cracks can result in serious consequences and expensive repairs. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
It’s Not Aesthetically Pleasing
Curled or bumpy shingles may be harmless, but it can be an eyesore. If you are looking to upgrade, call Momentum Home for more information.
How Do I Handle These Problems?
We recommend checking your roof regularly to avoid significant damage. By keeping an eye on your roof you can catch any issues early on, which can save a lot of money. Some issues, such as individual shingle thermal splitting, can be resolved by replacing one single panel. Unfortunately, once damage spreads it is likely that you will need to replace the entire roof. Being proactive is your best bet at avoiding this unfortunate circumstance!
