Does My Roof Need to be Replaced?


In many cases, a leak can be addressed without having to replace the roof. Leaking is normally a sign that your roof’s flashing (the metal that aids to protect your home from water intrusion where your roof meets a wall in your home) is in need of attention. 

It’s important to get a leak examined by a professional as soon as it’s noticed. Leaks can lead to a shortened roof lifespan and mold.

Curling shingles

Curling happens on the corners of shingles where they bend upward or underneath themselves. 

Algae growth

Algae spores are transported through the air. When they land on something, such as your roof, they will latch on and start to grow. In order for your roof to maximize its true life expectancy, it’s important to address the algae before it becomes widespread. 

Missing granules

Asphalt shingles are covered in granules in order to extend the lifespan of the roof. The granules serve as an additional barrier against nature’s elements. 

Over time, you may start to notice granules being displaced into your gutters. This is a signal that your roof is nearing or has reached the end of its lifespan and that a full replacement should be strongly considered.
