Signs You Need A New Roof

by | Jun 18, 2023

Do you feel little raindrops dripping onto you? Are there water stains around your ceiling? It seems like you may have caught a case of I need a new roof disease! Having a reliable roof is huge when it involves the place you call home. Yet, how will you know when it’s time to call it quits? Here are seven things to keep an eye out for when it comes to your roof!

    1. Age: Some things just get better with age, and roofs may not be one of them. Most roofs tend to last between 20 to 25 years. If your roof is older than that or you’re noticing a little wear and tear, it may be time for a replacement.


    1. Curling or Buckling Shingles: If you notice your shingles are curling or buckling, it’s time to see the Riddle Brothers! Curling shingles often mean that your roof is telling you it’s about time to close this chapter of the book. When shingles curl, they become brittle and are more susceptible to cause leaks and water damage.


    1. Missing or Damaged Shingles: If your roof has missing or damaged shingles, this can indicate that your roof is vulnerable to leaks and water damage.


    1. Granules in Gutters: Granules help protect your roof from the sun’s harmful UV rays. If you find granules in your gutters or around your downspouts, it’s a sign that your shingles are wearing down and need to be replaced. When granules start to wear away, your roof becomes more vulnerable to damage.


    1. Sunlight Through the Roof Boards: Does it seem a little more bright than usual? If you’re noticing sunlight coming through your roof boards, then it’s a sign to give us a call! This means your roof is damaged and may be sagging which can be very unsafe!


    1. Water Stains on Ceilings or Walls: No one wants a leaky roof. If you notice water stains on your ceilings or walls, it’s time to give the Riddle Brothers a call! Leaks can be repaired, but if you have an older roof or multiple leaks, it’s best to consider a full roof replacement.


  1. Increased Energy Bills: Having the correct insulation for your roof is very important. If your energy bills have been increasing over time, your roof’s insulation may not be in its best shape. Having a new roof installed can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and save you money in the long run.


There are many factors when it’s time to think about a new roof. From extreme temperatures to making sure you have a good roof structure, to begin with, can make a difference. We want to keep you and your home happy and safe at all times! It may be time to be out with the old and in with the new!
