A well-installed, quality asphalt roof can typically last 30-50 years. Inexperienced installation and poor-quality materials can cause your roof’s condition to deteriorate and you’ll need to have it replaced sooner than that. If your roof is in disrepair and no longer doing its job, your house will not be protected from the outdoor elements and could succumb to water damage. If water from rain or snow gets through it could cause costly damage to your insulation, framing, drywall, ceilings and other areas of your home.
Sunwest Roofing in Calgary shares some tell-tale signs it’s time to for a roof replacement:
1. Peeling and Curling Shingles
When shingles start to peel, it means they are no longer properly protecting your home. You might notice this happening on the south side of your roof where it gets the most sun exposure. If your roof is relatively new and you’re noticing the shingles are starting to curl at the corners, it could mean that they are defective or a very low-quality product. Either way, it’s time for a roof replacement.
2. Missing Shingles
If you notice little bits of singles or granule debris around your home and yard, it means that pieces of your roof are blowing off. Either the roof is old and needs to be replaced or wasn’t installed properly. Leave it too long and even larger pieces, sometimes entire shingles will start to come off. If you see that some areas of the roof look darker, it could mean that the granules are blowing off exposing the underlay. The best thing you can do is call roofers in Calgary to replace the roof for you before your home suffers more damage.
3. Damaged Flashing
Take a walk around your house and inspect the flashing around your chimney, vents and other openings in the roof. If they look like they’re detached, damaged and not providing the coverage they should be it means that those areas could be exposed, and water could be getting in. A roofing contractor can fix this for you.
