How to Know That It's Time to Replace Your Roof

Published by Pickard Roofing at

The roof is one of the most important parts of your home. Not only does it protect you and your family from the elements, but it also helps to regulate the temperature inside your home and keep your energy bills down. That's why it's so important to make sure that your roof is in good condition. But how do you know when it's time to replace your roof? Here are a few things to look out for.

Shingle Damage

One of the first things you'll start to notice if your roof needs to be replaced is damage to the shingles. This can manifest itself in a number of ways, such as cracking, curling, or missing granules. If you notice any of these problems, it's best to call in a professional for an inspection. They'll be able to tell you for sure whether or not your roof needs to be replaced. 


Another surefire sign that you need a new roof is if your current roof leaks. If you start to notice water stains on your ceiling or dripping during a rainstorm, that means that your roof is no longer doing its job of keeping water out. Ignoring this problem will only lead to further damage, so it's best to call in a professional as soon as possible. 


Even if you can't see any visible damage, it's important to keep in mind that roofs have a limited lifespan. Most roofs will last between 20 and 25 years before they need to be replaced. So if your roof is approaching this age range, it's best to have it inspected by a professional just to be on the safe side. 


Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, so it's important to make sure that it's in good condition. If you're noticing any damage, leaks, or if your roof is simply getting up there in age, then it might be time for a replacement. Call in a professional Roofing Contractor to inspect your roof and they'll let you know for sure whether or not you need a new one. Don't wait until it's too late.
