3 Common Signs That Your Roof Needs to Be Replaced Soon

Roof Replacement New JerseyNo matter how well you maintain your New Jersey roof, in time, it’s going to have to go. Luckily, you don’t have to find yourself blindsided by a failing roof. Rather, you can learn some common signs to remain mindful of, and looking for these signs, you can stay on top of your roof’s condition and get it replaced sooner rather than later.

The signs are easy to observe — easy enough that you can observe them yourself, without the help of a roofing contractor. And when you spot the following signs, be sure to call the roofing and siding pros at King Remodeling, and we’ll get started on replacing that old, failing roof ASAP.

You Need Repairs More and More Frequently

Even the most durable roof is going to need repair work through the years. That’s just what happens to something that remains in constant exposure to the elements. But though roofing repairs are perfectly fine, the need for CONTINUOUS repairs is not.

After all, needing constant roofing repairs is a sign that your roof is simply moving beyond the point of usefulness. A roof that can merely be bandaged and patched here and there is not a safe roof at all, and when you find yourself calling your roofer for repairs more and more frequently, you might need to just bite the bullet and call them for a replacement instead.

Your Shingles Are Damaged or Even Missing

People who have shingle roofs enjoy an advantage when it comes to keeping an eye on their roof’s condition. This advantage comes from the physical look of the shingles, which can obviously tell you what condition your roof is in.

For instance: If your shingles are cracking, buckled, or even missing altogether, your roof is clearly in bad condition. And if such unsightly shingles are the rule rather than the exception across your roof, guess what? It just might be time to get a new roof, as yours has just about outlived its usefulness.

Your Roof Is Reaching Its Age Limit

Despite their size and expense, roofs are not immune to the unavoidable march of time. And depending on the kind of roof you have, its march can last anywhere from 20 to 100 years — a pretty wide span, for sure, but still a limit at some point down the road.

Whether your roof is made to last for 20 years or 100 years, it’s important to know how close it is to reaching that age limit. And as it nears it, you need to start prepping for a roof replacement, because those numbers are not arbitrary. They tell you about how much more use you can get out of your roof before it’s time to get it gone.
