When is the right time to replace your roof?
Sometimes it is not enough to just repair your East Tennessee roof. There comes a time when replacement is the only solution. You will know when it is time to replace your existing roof when you identify any of these signs:
The age of the roof
The lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is between 20 to 30 years. If your roof is above that range, then you may want to proactively start thinking of replacing it.
Broken or cracked shingles may be a result of wind damage. If only a few are broken, you can replace them. However, if the cracks are not just found in one area but in random areas on the entire roof, you might want to think about full replacement.
Loss of granulation on the asphalt shingles
The granules protect the asphalt from the sun and once they fall off, the shingles start to bake leading to their deterioration. If you start seeing granules in the gutter, it’s time for a replacement.
The shingles are covered with algae
While this may not be a serious cause of alarm, it may call for replacement in some cases. While you can decide to wash the roof, it is best to have it replaced. Today, there are many shingles that are algae-resistant. Consult with us to learn more.
