Key points to check if you need roof replacement
If you think you might need a new roof, the first place to check is your attic. After that, review your home improvement records to see how long ago the roof was replaced or re shingled. Knowing when a roof was installed offers insight into how much life it has left. Keep an eye on your rooftop to make sure its in ship-shape, especially after heavy storms.
Check all parts of roof before replacement
Check the gutters and downspouts for shingle granules—a roof that is losing a lot of granules may be at the end of its useful life. The flashing around vents, skylights, and chimneys seals the seams of the roof from rain and weather. In conclusion, examine these points make sure there are no cracks or breaks. Check the surface for signs of trapped moisture, rotting boards, or sagging spots, especially at the lowest points in the roof.
Just because you have a few damaged shingles or a bit of a leak, don’t automatically assume that you need a whole new roof ASAP. If your roof has been properly installed and is younger than 15 or 20 years old, it may get by with repairs rather than a full replacement.
