Indicators that you may need a roof replacement
There are several signs that you need a roof replacement – roof age, missing shingle tiles, moldy shingles, bad chimney flashing, bad roof valleys, or expired warranties. All of these are tell tale signs that you need a roof replacement.
Roof leaks are the most common indicator that your roof may need replacing. Oftentimes homeowners will seek a roofing contractor after seeing a roof leak or watermark on the interior of their homes. This is an especially bad sign should you have an attic space above your home. This will usually mean that the leak has been there for some time, especially if you haven’t visited your attic space in a while. Unaddressed, roofs leaks can cause rotting and mold that can further compromise the entire roofing system.
Furthermore, if your roof exceeds 15 years or more, it’s a pretty good guess that you’ll require a roof replacement. The roof that is on your home today is most likely covered with asphalt shingles which are the most cost effective and commonly used type of roofing shingle. Asphalt shingles generally have a 20 year lifespan.
Bad Roof Valleys
Roof valleys are troughs that channel runoff water where two sections of a slope roof intersect. In many older homes, the roof valleys consist of several layers of roofing paper which degrade over time. Other techniques include overlapping shingles to form a valley, and rainwater can find it’s way underneath the shingles. Repairing a damaged roof valley involves removing shingles and installing sheet metal flashing from the top to bottom in the valley. If the roof valleys have been faulty for an extended period, you may need a roof replacement.
Missing or Split Shingles
Even the highest quality roof shingles wear out over time. Rain, sleet, snow, and wind can tear shingles off, exposing the roof to the weather causing leaks that can damage the roof structure, and other areas of the home such as the attic, ceiling, and walls.
Split shingles are a result of exposure to the weather over time. This can occur in a short period of time, or slowly over time. Split shingles need to be replaced or repaired promptly to prevent leaks.
To prevent these costly and unsafe scenarios, missing, split, or torn shingles should be replaced immediately. If your roof has had missing shingles for a significant time, your roof and other structures may have suffered extensive damage that requires a roof replacement.
Roofs are vulnerable to water damage such as mold and rot if there are patches where you have missing or torn shingles. If the problem is not corrected quickly, the mold can spread to nearby shingles and roof structure, compounding the problem.
Another cause of roof shingle mold and wood rot is inadequate ventilation in the attic space. If roof ventilation is impeded, heat and moisture can build up leading to buckled roof shingles, rafter and sheathing wood rot. Appropriate attic ventilation helps prevent structural damage due to moisture.
If your roof has developed extensive shingle mold, you may require a roof replacement.
Bad Chimney Flashing
Chimney flashing prevents water from leaking down the chimney into a home’s attic. White stains on the chimney brick inside your home usually is a sign your chimney flashing is not performing properly. Chimney flashing consists of two components: a base flashing that is attached to the wood deck on the roof, and a counter flashing that covers the base. Replacing chimney flashing can be expensive, and if your roof has suffered extensive damage, you may need a roof replacement.
