Since a roof is such a big investment, many people overlook the problems with their roof because they do not want to replace it, or they think they can repair it themselves. Here are a few warning signs to look for that show it is probably time to replace your roof:
- Missing Shingles. Strong winds can blow shingles off your roof. If you have several areas that are missing shingles or where the shingle tabs are not intact, this could be a sign you need a new roof. Missing shingles can lead to water damage that can cause leaks in your home. This can also create mold and mildew problems.
- Age. The age of your roof is a good indicator on whether you need to replace your roof. Most roofs are designed to last between 20 and 25 years. If your roof is older than 25 years, it may be time to replace your roof.
- Spongy feel when walking on the roof. If you notice that that your roof feels spongy or gives when you walk on it, this is a sure sign you need to replace your roofing. This means there is most likely water damage on your roof. You can also check the insulation in your attic to see if it has any moisture in it.
