How to Tell if Your Roof Is Due for a Replacement

New Roof Cincinnati OHThe typical roofing system lasts about 20 to 25 years. If yours is reaching up there in age, you may be thinking about a new roof. Here are some key signs to look for that may indicate your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced:

Broken, Buckling, or Missing Shingles

Roofing shingles that are curling or buckling are a telltale sign of a roofing system’s age. Not only do buckling shingles start to affect curb appeal, but they also create a risk of moisture infiltration. That risk is multiplied if the shingles are broken or missing entirely.

Deteriorating Roof Valleys

Roof valleys comprise the space between the ridges and play an important role in protecting your home against moisture damage by channeling rain and melted snow off your roof and into the gutter system. If the valleys are cracked or missing, water can pool on the roof and create a host of problems. Therefore, if you notice issues with the roof valleys on your home, a new roof may be the best solution.

Worn-Out Flashing

Flashing is found around chimneys and vents and prevents water from seeping into the holes in the roof. Not all flashing is created equal, and some varieties deteriorate faster than others. Again, your home is at risk of moisture damage if your roof’s flashing is no longer performing as intended.

Granules in the Gutters

As asphalt roofing shingles degrade over the years, they begin to shed granules, which can accumulate in your gutters. Have you spotted any granules in your gutter system? If so, your home is likely ready for a new roof.
