How to Know if Your Residential Property Needs a Complete Roof Installation

It’s not as simple as it sounds to know whether you need to install a new roof — however, there are a few of the common warning signs that tell you installing a new roof system on your residential property may be in your best interest. Some important elements to note include: 

Your Roof is Leaking

If your residential roof leaks in multiple locations and/or leaks at different times of the year, there is a strong possibility your roof needs to be replaced.

Your Roof is Aging

Roofs that are heavily shaded or covered with leaves won’t perform with the ideal durability. Keeping your roof and gutters clean will help extend the life of your roof. Plus, properties in areas prone to high winds will need additional protections and maintenance to get the most out of a roof system. 

Missing Shingles

One of the most telling signs that your roof needs to be replaced is when you find that shingles are missing. This also lets you know that your roof is up there in years, and you should be thinking about finding a professional to repair it or replace it. Also, look for cracked shingles, shingle edges that are curled, and missing granules. If you’re missing shingles and need to file an insurance claim, we can assist you with that as well. 

Dark Streaks or Algae

While dark streaks may not necessarily harm the shingles on your roof, you can’t deny that they look pretty unappealing. Dark streaks are a symptom of algae, which is another sign that your roof is getting old and that you will likely need to replace it soon.
