Do You Need to Replace Your Roof? 

Here are a few things to look out for:

Roofing That is Curling and Buckling Shingles

Curling and buckling shingles are often caused by sunlight.  Most curling and buckling of your roofing shingles can be seen very easily.  

Damaged Roof Valleys

A very significant part of your home is the roof valleys. Your roof valleys are there to assist with drainage and allow rainwater to flow through them and into your roof’s gutters.  If those roof valleys start to break down, leaks can become an issue.  You need also to look for missing or broken shingles in these roof valleys.

Shingle Granules

Old asphalt roofing will lose granules.  You can usually find these granules in your gutters because they are washed down your roof and land there. If you find these shingle granules in your gutters, it is a sure sign that you need a new roof.  Another signal that you are losing shingle granules is dark or inconsistent colors.

Daylight Showing Thru Your Roof

If you notice light streaming into your attic, that is a clear sign that you will need a roof replacement.  

Sagging Roof

A much more serious roofing problem is sagging.  By the time your roof is sagging, it is probably too late for a roof repair.  A sagging roof indicates that you have a structural problem that will need immediate attention. It is very important to take care of a sagging roof before it damages the rest of your home.

Roofing Covered in Moss

Moss, mold, and fungi need moisture to survive, so If you are seeing this, it indicates that you have moisture on your roof.  Moss can spread and damage your roof.  Many of the dark stains you see on your roof may be a sign of algae and another warning that you may need a new roof.

Age of Your Roof

Once your roof reaches the old age of 20-30 years, it will start to deteriorate.  There is nothing you can really do about this.  Throughout its lifetime, your roof, particularly in Pennsylvania, lives through a lot of weather changes, storms, and seasons.  Just start thinking about the possibility that you will need to replace your roof before long.
