Do I Need A New Roof?


Did you pull into your driveway and notice a shingle is missing? You may see a pesky crack. Or you are looking to improve the look and aesthetic of your home and property. No matter what the chances are, your roof is damaged, and you have just noticed it, causing you to analyze the item of your home that protects you and the interior. We have all been here, and this damage has occurred over a long period. While yes, a roofing replacement, repair, or installation is an unexpected expense; it can save you safety and money down the line. If you are considering replacing your roof, the industry experts at Novus Exteriors have compiled several warning signs that it is probably time to replace your roof.


4 Signs You Need A New Roof:


Old Age

A typical asphalt shingle roof has an average lifespan of 20 to 25 years. If you believe you are getting close to the end of your 20-25 year span, check your receipt to ensure you are within your roof’s lifespan. If you look and notice that the time window has passed, start planning for a new roof.


Missing Shingles

One or two missing shingles are nothing to fear. However, multiple missing shingles are never a good sign. Missing shingles signify a problem with the installation or the adhesive that connects the shingle to the roof. If you notice several shingles separating from your roof, it is time to replace it.


The Roof Is Sagging

A sagging roof is the most telltale sign that you need a completely new roof. A sagging roof occurs when there is an issue with the roof’s overall structure. Water damage, brook beams, etc can cause this. If you have noticed that your roof has begun to buckle, you need to contact a contractor immediately, as buckling can quickly lead to the roof falling apart if addressed slowly.


Water Damage In Your Home

Apparent water damage inside your home, coming from the roof, is a sign that your roof is no longer doing its job. If your roof is leaky, this can cause mold and can cause an accumulation of pests and critters to enter your home. If you notice water damage, call a contractor to assess the damage and see if you need a new roof.
