3 Signs You Might Need a New Roof

You never want to replace your roof, but someday you will have to. While a Brown Boys roof inspection is the best way to know exactly how healthy your roof is, here are three things you can look at before you call us.

Roof Age

How old is your current roof? The average lifespan of a typical asphalt shingle roof is 20-25 years if properly cared for, or potentially much shorter if neglected. Also, installing over a previous layer of roofing ages your roof faster, so if you have multiple layers of shingles, and your roof is approaching 20 years old, you should probably be saving up for a new roof.

Shingles That Are Curling Or Buckling

Of course, the condition of your shingles determines how well they do their job. If your shingles are curling or buckling, they are probably not protecting your home properly. Buckling or curling shingles can also be a sign of defective installation or roof structure, so even on a newer roof, you should always get them checked out.

Roof Valley Condition

The valleys on your roof handle more water than any other area, so if you have damaged or missing shingles in a valley, water could be finding its way into your home. We probably don’t need to tell you that the best time to fix water damage is before it happens, but we just did anyway.

If you’re not sure whether your roof is going to do its job much longer, give us a call today at
479-248-9100, or contact us.
