Is It Time For A New Roof?

Is It Time For A New Roof?

Having trouble identifying whether a new roof is needed? Have no fear, we are here to help you with a few tips provided by our friends at Celtic Construction.

20-year 3-tab shingles on a 4/12 roof or lower, that are around 14 years old, will visibly be showing age and nearing the end of their functional life. Depending on roof slope and exposure, 25+ year architectural shingles will have a longer life expectancy in Florida, ranging around 18-22 years.

What to look for

You will notice where the edges start to separate and lift and then curl. This becomes a major hazard during heavy winds. This is a telltale sign that your roof is starting to age.

Are you noticing granular loss? The sand-like material on each shingle is granules. The granules protect the main roof covering. If you notice that your gutters have granules in them, this is also a sign of aging or inadequate ventilation.
Roof leakage could be the result of an aging roof or storm damage. This damage is rarely visible from the ground and requires a roof assessment.

Hopefully, this will help you diagnose any current or future issues.
