Obvious Signs That You Need a New Roof

Your home's roofing system is the closest thing your home has to a shield against the harsh elements. While roofs are designed for maximum durability, there will still be a time when your roof has to be replaced because of all the wear and tear it had to put up with over the years. Once you see the obvious signs of an aging roof, you need to have it replaced as soon as possible.

Signs Your ROof is Old | West Side Roofing

West Side Roofing talks about those signs:

Your Roof Is Old

All roofing systems have a set lifespan that depends on climate, the type of roof design and the material used to make them. A typical asphalt shingle roof can last anywhere between 20 to 30 years. A roof past is lifespan is more likely to suffer from structural problems, even if it looks fine. If you don't want to be faced with the risk of constant problems – or worse, a roof collapse – you have to get your roof replaced.

Moss on the Surface

Moss and algae tend to build up in areas of the roof where moisture gets stuck. While this kind of problem is mostly a cosmetic issue, roofers say that scraping it off with a brush or a power washer is not a good idea because it also affects the asphalt layer of the shingles. The best way to deal with algae or moss buildup is to prevent them from showing up in the first place. Our algae-resistant shingles are a good start.

Shingles Are Warped or Curled

Over time, shingles can suffer from cupping or clawing. Cupping looks like the edges and corners of your shingles start curving upwards while clawing looks like the shingle is bulging from the middle. If these problems show up, they can create gaps in your roof's outer surface, allowing water to seep into your home and cause leaks. The best way to deal with this is to get rid of the old shingles and replace them with a layer of new ones.

Gutter Granules

Remember that part about shingles having an asphalt layer? Over time, strong wind and water runoff from rain can erode that layer and cause asphalt granules to accumulate in the gutter. If you see something similar to course, black sand running along the gutters, it means your roofing system's main form of protection is already getting stripped off, and your home is now vulnerable until you have those shingles replaced.
