Signs Your Roof Needs to Be Replaced 

Signs Your Roof Needs to Be Replaced 

27 October

Being a homeowner has a lot of benefits, but it also comes with many responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is paying attention to your home to know when repairs and maintenance are needed. While being able to see chipped paint or detect a broken hot water heater is easy, something that can be more difficult to keep an eye on is the roof. Giving your roof a visual inspection every few months is a great idea. During that time, here are some things you should be looking out for that may be a sign you need a new roof

1. Your Roof Is Sagging or Drooping in Spots 

If your roof is sagging or drooping in spots, this is a sure sign that the roof is damaged and needs to be replaced. Typically, a sagging or drooping roof occurs because the decking—which is the support structure that underpins the roof—has been damaged by moisture and needs to be replaced. A sagging roof should be a priority, as this isn’t just an eyesore, but could also be dangerous. 

2. You Can See Light Coming Through Your Attic

If you can see light coming through your attic, you’re in trouble. If light can come through the roof and you can see it, this means that moisture can come through the roof. And if moisture can come through the roof, you may already have a big problem on your hands that will only get worse with time. Like correcting a sagging or drooping roof, addressing this should be a top priority.

3. There Are Plants Growing…On Your Roof

Is your roof turning into a greenhouse, covered with moss and other green plant growth? If so, this means that you have rot and moisture damage, which should be corrected ASAP. Roofs that have rot are at risk of sinking or caving in, putting your home and your family at risk.

4. You See Other Exterior Damage

Moisture damage isn’t the only reason to replace an old roof—there are a lot of other signs to be on the lookout for, too. Some signs of damage that you should pay attention to include warped, cracked, and bald shingles. You should also keep an eye out for missing shingles or large swaths of missing shingles on the roof.
