Signs It’s Time for a Roof Replacement

Sometimes knowing when you need to replace your roof can be difficult. Sure, there are obvious signs like a leaky roof, but there are some warning signs that aren’t always obvious if you aren’t familiar with roofing material. If you’re curious if your roof could potentially need to be replaced soon, read on to find out a few warning signs from our roofing contractors at the Lake of the Ozarks.


Warning Signs That You May Need To Replace Your Roof 

1) Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped.

2) Your roof is at least 20 years old. Although many shingles today are produced for durability, many factors can accelerate the aging of shingles. For example, your shingles can be negatively impacted by improper roof ventilation.

3) Your roof looks worn and old. If your roof just looks old and worn, it is best to be proactive about replacing your roof at the Lake of the Ozarks before it causes bigger issues.

4) Bald spots where granules are missing,

5) If your roof has noticeable signs of moss. Moss can grow on roof surfaces that don’t get much sunlight, especially in cool, moist climates. Moss growth can be more than a cosmetic issue. Moss holds moisture against the roof surface and overtime in freezing climates can cause damage to the granules on the top of the shingles. Moss can be brushed off but it won’t prevent it from growing again; take care not to damage the shingle surface. You may need to contact a professional roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks.

6) Your shingles are beginning to crack.

7) Your roof has noticeable dark spots. Airborne algae cause dark streaks on roof decks. While this may not necessarily harm the roof shingles, it may not look good. Algae streaks can be removed using a 50:50 blend of water and bleach sprayed on your roof. It is important to use a low volume garden hose so you do not knock the protective granules off your shingles. It is also important that you protect your landscaping from the bleach run-off.
