How do I know when my roof needs to be replaced?

It can be difficult for homeowners to know when to replace a roof, but Apex Restoration & Roofing is here to help you figure this out, right now.

Here’s how to tell if you need a new roof:

  1. The Roof Is Old

Most asphalt shingles last around 12-15 years, while metal might last longer. If it’s been decades since you’ve replaced your roof, or your last repairs were done by overlaying, it might be time to install a new one.

  1. Some Shingled Are Missing or Curled

Look at your roof and analyze the shingles. If any ‘pieces’ are missing, or if a lot of them are curling upward, this is a clear sign you need a new roof.

  1. The Roof Is Leaking

If you go up into the attic and see the walls or ceiling are wet or discolored, the roof might have a leak that’s letting water go into your home.

  1. It Has Ice Buildup

Ice dams form when your roof isn’t properly ventilated. The hot air melts the snow on the roof, leading to ice on the exterior of your home, and this added pressure can create lots of damage to your roof.

  1. Damaged Flashing

If you notice rusted or missing flashing around your chimney or vent pipes, this could be a sign your roof is damaged and water is getting in.

  1. Unwanted Pests in Your Home

Pest can enter your home through a damaged roof. If you’re noticing a lot more unwanted guests recently, the roof is a good first place to check.

  1. Moss and Mold Growth

Moss and mold can grow when moisture builds up in your attic between your roof layers. Over time it can also cause extensive roof damage.
