How do you know when do the asphalt shingles need replacements?

Posted on May 31, 2013 · Posted in Blog

Roof is your first line of defense against the weather and all the harsh conditions that prevail outside. So it is best to keep a track of the condition of your roof in order to spot any signs of damage or repair requirement.

There are several clues that tell you when does your asphalt roof needs to be repaired or replaced. One of the biggest one being age. If your roof is very old like 20 years or so, it is a clear indication that it has lived it life and needs a replacement. Sometimes young roofs also need replacement depending upon their condition. So it is a good idea to keep on inspecting your roof. You do not need to climb up using a ladder instead use binoculars to spot for the signs of damage from the ground.

Here’s what to look for: numerous shingles that are lifting up, cracked or missing, with curled edges, or with smooth dark areas, which indicate that the protective granules have worn off. Secondly go to the attic on a sunny day and with lights off, observe the inner side. If you see any pinholes, it is a clear indication that the roof has undergone some major damage. It is a sure sign that you need to call a roofer.
