Your roof is one of your home’s most fundamental systems — because of this, when it has reached the end of its lifespan and begins to fail, the damage can eventually impact other areas of your home.

How to Know You Need a Roof Replacement

To get ahead of this issue, here are some indicators that you may soon be due for a roof replacement:

  • Age: Even with the best preventative maintenance, all roofs have an expected lifetime. The amount of time you can depend on your roofing system to last depends on several factors, including the quality of the roofing installation, materials used, and maintenance it received.
  • Deterioration: If your roof is decayed or damaged beyond repair, a roof replacement will be needed soon. A hint that this is happening is if your roof is sagging or caving in, which can indicate the structures that support the roof are breaking. Other warning signs are if many shingles throughout the roof are curling, missing, or cracked.
  • Water damage: Leaks from your roof can cause water damage to your home’s attic, walls, and ceilings. In addition to glaring signs of water damage like stains and rotting, another clue that your roof has a leak is if you notice light coming through your attic’s ceiling. If you suspect your roof has been leaking and observe water damage impacting the interior or exterior of your home, it’s possible that a roof replacement is your best solution.
