Is it Time to Replace Your Roof?

While you’ll need a professional inspection to confirm if you need a new roof, this roofing checklist will help you easily assess it from the ground for signs that it’s time for a replacement:


The age of your roof is a great indicator of when it needs to be fully assessed for replacement. If your roof is older than 15-20 years, it might be nearing the end of its lifespan.

Visible Shingle Damage

Even from the ground, shingle damage can be evident. Look out for missing, cracked, curling, or buckling shingles. These are indicators of potential roof issues that may need attention.

Granule Loss

Granules are small pieces of your shingles that may wash off when it rains, indicating deterioration. Check for excessive granules accumulating in your gutters, downspouts, or in areas of your lawn where water runs from your downspouts.

Sagging or Uneven Roof Lines

If you notice any sections of the roof are sagging or uneven, it’s an indicator of structural problems that need immediate attention.

Water Stains, Peeling Paint, or Blistering on Ceilings or Walls

Water stains or discoloration inside your home may suggest a leak in the roof that requires investigation while peeling and blistering paint can indicate excess moisture trapped beneath the roofing material.

Regular roof maintenance and inspections can help prolong the lifespan of your roof and prevent costly issues down the line, but eventually, even the best-maintained roof will need to be replaced. Whatever your roofing needs, our experts are here to assist.
