Signs That You Need to Replace Your Roof

Just like any other part of your home, your roof will eventually need replacement. Knowing when it’s time to replace your roof can be tricky. That’s why we’re here to discuss the warning signs to look out for to help you determine when it’s time for roof replacement. 

Signs That You Need to Replace Your Roof

Age of the Roof

One of the first things to consider is your roof’s age. Asphalt roofs typically have a lifespan of 20-30 years, depending on the quality of materials used and the installation. Factors such as the local climate, exposure to harsh weather and proper ventilation can also affect how long your roof lasts. If your roof is reaching the end of its expected lifespan, it might be time to start thinking about a replacement.

Damaged or Missing Shingles

Take a look at your roof’s shingles. Are they curling, buckling or missing? These are signs of wear and tear that could indicate your roof is in need of replacement. Damaged shingles can allow water to seep in, leading to leaks and structural issues.

Granules in Gutters

Granules are the small, sand-like particles on the surface of asphalt shingles that help protect your roof from the elements. Over time, these granules can loosen and end up in your gutters. If you’re noticing a significant amount of granules in your gutters, it could be a sign that your roof is wearing down and may need to be replaced.

Sagging Roof

A sagging roof is a warning sign that shouldn’t be ignored. It can be caused by improper installation, inadequate support or water damage. A sagging roof has the potential to cause structural damage to your home. This is why it’s essential to address this issue as soon as possible.

Leaks and Water Damage

Inspect your attic and ceilings for any signs of leaks or water damage, such as stains or mold growth. These issues not only indicate a problem with your roof, but they can also lead to more severe damage or even health issues if left unaddressed.

Moss or Algae Growth

If you notice moss or algae growing on your roof, it could mean your shingles are retaining moisture. This can lead to damage and rot, compromising your roof’s integrity and ultimately requiring a replacement.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
