Quality roofing materials can last for decades, depending on the type of installation and maintenance. You can keep track of your roof’s age by keeping records of when it was installed. You can also look for visible indications of an aging roof. Leaks & Water Damage
Leaks and wet stains on the walls and ceilings indicate that your roof is failing. Go to your attic and look for signs of water damage like sunlight passing through the beams, exposed seams and sagging areas in the roof. Missing Shingles
While shingles can loosen up due to high winds, worn down underpinnings can also cause this issue. Check if the tabs are secure if you discover a loose shingle. Curled or Buckled Shingles
Shingles that are starting to curl or buckle is another sign your roofing system is aging. Examine the parts of the roof that get the most sun, and check if they are warping or losing granules.Sagging Areas
Sagging indicates that certain areas of the decking may be rotting or deteriorating. They are likely holding water, which speeds up the deterioration of your roof. Cracked Shingles
Cracks on the shingles mean that you may need to replace your roof. They let water seep underneath your roof, resulting in water damage in your indoor spaces. Granule-Filled Gutters
It’s normal to have a small number of shingle granules in your gutters. However, excessive granule loss is a warning sign that your roof is reaching the end of its life.
