Signs You Need a Roofing Replacement – Home Efficiency Tips

They will endure. The roofs of all homes eventually wear out and require replacement. This video shows some of the most common signs that you are in need of replacing your roofing.

If your roof is 20 years old or more, it’s important to get it checked by a top-quality roofing company once a year, at least. Mother Nature is capable of damaging an old roof exposed to the elements for longer than 20 years. The structural integrity of the roof will be damaged by UV rays and temperature changes, along with rain, snow or sleet.

First, the roofing company will examine the condition of the grains. The reflective particles help lessen the amount of heat that is absorbed by asphalt shingles by the sun’s rays. However, eventually the granules begin to fall off and the shingle is removed completely.

Roofers are also required to look for peeling or cracked shingles. The roof is in good state of repair. There are a few small cracks however most of the shingles remain tightly tacked down. Temperature fluctuations and high winds that cause the roofing materials to contract and expand can make poorly-installed roofs fall off and then crack rapidly.
