Updated: Jul 7, 2020
1. Inspecting Your Roof - From a safe distance
To start, you can conduct a visual inspection from the ground. Be safe when inspecting your roof—We suggest viewing your roof from a window inside the house or use binoculars from the ground. If in doubt, don’t hesitate, call a professional roofing contractor. Look for signs of aging such as cracks or loose shingles. Your flashing boot should be intact. Any leaks or water stains to the inside of your home's ceiling can be a sign of roof damage.
2. Signs You Need a Roof Repair
One of the signs of a roof repair is a small concentrated leak in your home. If this is true then you are going to need to look for a roof repair company. Another sign of roof repair is a few missing or worn shingles on your roof.
3. Signs You Need a Roof Replacement
There are a few things to take into consideration when determining if you need a roof replacement. Your roofs age is a great place to start. Knowing when your roof was installed will offer you insight into how much life it has left. Most asphalt shingles will last anywhere from 20 - 25 years. Another sign of needing a roof replacement is if your shingles are discolored, loose, or missing.
