Signs it’s time to replace your roof
Is your roof showing one of these red flags? Contact us to begin the reroofing process.
Know the signs
Spot damage early
Up to a certain point, damage to a roof can be repaired. Past that point, however, you’ll find yourself scheduling a full replacement of your home’s roof. Get ahead of weaknesses in your roof by learning to identify signs of wear and tear.
Easy to identify signs to reroof
While smaller, more subtle, signs of disrepair may be lurking, most homeowners will be able to identify these signs from the ground.
How to check for hail damage
After a hail storm has occurred in your neighborhood, you’ll need to do a bit of detective work to determine if your roof has been effected. Check the area around your home and the neighboring houses to determine if you’re dealing with hail damage.

Red flags upon closer inspection
Most homeowners won’t be able to get an up close look at the state of their roof. But, if you do have the chance to safely inspect your home’s roof, these are the more subtle signs you’ll want to look for.
1. Excessive shingle granule loss
When shingles are approaching the end of their useful lifespan they shed large amounts of granules. If you notice lots of asphalt particles, sand-like granules, or debris in your gutters or on the ground around the perimeter of your home, it’s a sign your shingles are reaching the end of their lifecycle and your home needs to be reroofed.
2. Blistering Shingles
If your shingles look like they are blistering, it is due to a buildup of moisture. This blistering – which is caused by a manufacturing defect – will eventually lead to cracking and holes that will begin the process of aging the shingle much faster, leading to missing granules. The sun’s exposure to the black matt underneath the granules will cause the shingle to slowly deteriorate. This can cause your shingles to leak.
3. Algae growth or rotting shingles
Florida’s humidity and rainfall can rot shingles or cause them to grow algae (which can be dark red or green in color). Wooden shingles are most susceptible to rot but asphalt shingles can rot as well. Even if it looks like a small problem, if left unaddressed, the rot or algae will spread. It is important to have a professional look at your roof to access damage. They will let you know if only those shingles needs to be replaced or if the integrity of your roof as a whole is compromised.
4. Pinholes in roof flashing
If you spend time in your attic on a sunny day and notice that outside light is coming into the room from the ceiling it is an indicator that there are holes in the flashing of the roof. This means that along with sunlight, water can enter your home. Before calling a professional, you should also check for soft spots, water staining, and moisture in the surrounding wood.
How old is your existing roof?
Consider lifespan first
Take a look at your records to determine how old your roof is. If your roof has reached the end of its lifespan and isn’t showing signs of damage, you’ll still need to schedule an inspection. This will help you make any necessary repairs or replacements needed to fully protect your home.
