Signs it is time for roof shingle replacement
Recent extreme weather
In Edmonton, your roof shingles will be exposed to wind, heavy rain, hail, snow, ice, and freeze-thaw cycles. So, if there are any recent extreme weather events, like Edmonton’s strong thunderstorms or wind storms like the recent squall, then it is an excellent time to assess your roof.
The impact of hail, rain, wind, and winter ice can take shingles off the roof. Rapid Roofing & Repairs can help and will replace all missing shingles and also check the rest of your roof for regular maintenance issues to extend your roof’s life.
Shingles show visible wear
If you currently have asphalt shingles, you can tell if they are wearing down by looking at the granules or edges. If the granules no longer look consistent and even, this means the shingles are aging. Additionally, if the shingle edges look warped or curled, you’ll know they are starting to show their wear.
Aging shingles do not function as well and can be problematic. If you notice missing granules or curled edges and warping, contact Rapid Roofing & Repairs for a rapid quote on roof replacement.
Your roof is decades old
If your roof is 25 to 30 years old, it has likely at the end of its lifespan. Most asphalt roofs that were installed 20 years ago will soon need replacing. If you’re unsure how old your roof is, contact Rapid Roofing & Repairs. They can inspect your roof for signs of wear and estimate its age based on the condition.
You can also check the seller’s disclosure documents you obtained when purchasing your home. They might include when the roof was last replaced. Remember, if you’re purchasing a new home, ask about the roof’s age to be more prepared for if and when you need a replacement.
