A roofing inspection isn’t something that is done on a regular basis, unless you live in an area that gets a lot of storms. Regardless of where you live, it’s important to be aware of your roof’s life expectancy and easily identifiable ways to tell if you are in need of a roof replacement.  Waiting too long to replace your roof could lead to the leakage and rotting of your home. Your roof protects your home and everything in it, so be sure to buy a quality roof and have regular maintenance checks done on your roof to prevent costly repairs

Age

Just like anything else, your roof has an expiration date. The typical roof lasts between twenty and twenty-five years. This is dependent on the quality of the roof, if the roof was installed on top of old shingles or not, and if the roof was properly ventilated.

Check your roofing valleys

If any of the valleys of your roof have missing shingles, it is a sure  sign that it is time for a new roof! If the valleys of your roof ever become compromised, it can lead to major leaks.

Curled or Buckling Shingles

If the shingles of your roof are beginning to curl or buckle in areas of your roof that get direct sunlight, it can be a sign that your shingles are past their life expectancy.

Check for shingle granules

If at any point you start to see an excess of shingle granules in your gutters, it is a sign that your shingles are starting to deteriorate and need to be replaced.
