Signs You May Need a Roof Replacement This Summer

Is it time to repair or time to replace your old roof? Summertime in the Midwest means we will see plenty of severe storms that could bring hail and even more extreme weather. After the storm passes, one of the first things you should look at is your roof. Whether you can physically get up there to take a look yourself or simply look for signs inside; it is essential to find any roof related issues as soon as possible. As experts in roof repair and roofing installation in St Paul, we at Eastern Roofing & Siding have come up with a list of warning signs to help you determine whether or not you need a new roof.

Age

How old is your roof? Most experts agree that the typical roof can last between 20 and 25 years. This of course, depends on the type of wear and tear it endures.

Curling/Missing Shingles

Shingles that are curled or buckling are another sign that you may need a roofing installation. Look at the slopes of your home that get direct sunlight and if you notice the shingles are curling and/or losing granules, give us a call.

Missing shingles are another sign your roof could be failing. Take a look and see if all of your shingles are intact. If it is unsafe to do so, please contact our roofing installation company for assistance.

Seeing the Light

Have you been to your attic lately? Check your attic to see if there is any daylight coming through the roof boards. Also, if you notice moisture in your insulation, this could be another sign you are in need of roofing installation or repair.

Leaks & Gutters

An obvious sign that your roof needs a roofing contractor is if you notice any leaks inside or if any trees or tree limbs fell on your roof. Take a close look at your home’s gutters as well. Do you see any granules collecting in your gutters or downspouts? Are your gutters or downspouts detached from your home? Our roofing installation company can come out and take a look at your roof and make any necessary repairs or let you know if you are in need of roofing replacement.

And, these are just a few of the signs you may need a professional roofing installation. Of course, if you are unsure if your roof is damaged or if you cannot spot any signs of damage but you still want it inspected, call us and we can send a roofing contractor out.
