- Shingles may have cracked, curled, or absent
If you notice such things then it is an indication that the life of shingles is almost over and it should be immediately repaired. If you notice plenty of such signs then you will have to consider roof replacement option.
- Shingles are dirty, dark, or wet
If you ever notice that your shingles appear dirty and wet, then they are really not doing what they are supposed to do. You need to identify exactly which shingle is the culprit and replace that.
- Plenty of shingle granules found in gutters
When lots of granules are found in the gutter then it is sign that they have started wearing out. Finally, they find their path into the gutter. Consider repairing at this stage.
- Around roof openings and objects lots of wear and tear
Often vents, pipes, chimneys and other objects may penetrate the roof at certain places where initially deterioration may develop. Therefore, you can fix only within that specific area.
- Blistering or peeling of exterior paint
In case of poor ventilation of your attic, you can find moisture or humidity build up all around the roofline that can cause paint getting peeled or blister getting developed.
- Staining on interior walls or ceilings
There can be number of reasons for water stains or wall and ceiling getting discoloured. But the underlayment of the roofs must be allowing moisture getting into your home, that may create stains.
- After a rainstorm leaks found in the attic
In case you find that rainwater is getting into the attic, then it may be just a question of replacement of flashing. However, if the underlayment is completely porous, then probably you will have to consider for total roof replacement.
- A roof deck which is sagging
Often you will notice that your rafter or decking in the attic are downward sagging instead of in straight position, which is due to wetness from leaking moisture.
In case, such phenomena are localized, then you can repair it and avoid complete roof replacement.
- The presence of the outside light in the attic
During the day if you are up in your attic and find that you can easily see light coming in, then you can understand that even water can also invade your attic from those openings.
- Higher energy bills
Notice your electricity bill for last few months and if you find that it has suddenly increased for no reason, then perhaps your heating or air conditioning cost is increasing due to leaking out through the roof.
