3 signs that you need to replace your roof

When was the last time you checked your roof for looming problems? If you’ve had an asphalt roof for more than 10 years, you could be on your way to costly repairs or the need for new quality roofing – but how do you know for sure? Here are some key signs that your current roof may be failing and it’s time to start thinking about a replacement.

1. Worn shingles
This Old House noted that one of the most obvious signs that you need a new roof is broken or missing shingles

on your roof. Ones that appear to be lifting from the roof itself can also signal that you need to start considering its age and how it could benefit from being replaced with a more durable option.

2. Water stains
Most people don’t realize that their roofs have worn down until they start to notice leaks inside of their homes. If you see water stains on your ceiling, this could be a sign that your roof is no longer getting the job done. You don’t need water constantly pouring down from your ceiling to indicate a leak – pay attention to the smaller signs.

3. Rot
Rotted portions of your roof are some of the most easiest symptoms to spot, according to Old House Web, a home enthusiast and advice blog. Areas of your roof that have become smooth due to shingles wearing away and falling off are also a sign that you need to think about a replacement.

So what do you do when you determine you need to overhaul your roof? Ideally, you should look into alternative roofing that can last you for an extended period of time – metal roofing can be an ideal option. As the Metal Roofing Alliance has stated, this type of roof can last more than 50 years and withstand the elements longer than asphalt roofs. Additionally, metal roofs tend to be more environmentally friendly than asphalt. In most cases, they can be recycled and they’re often composed of reused materials, which can help you reduce your carbon footprint.

These days, metal roofs also come in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit the existing exterior of your home.
