Typically, when homeowners think about roofing problems they think of leaks. But sometimes a roof can naturally reach the end of its useful life without experiencing a roof failure. Aging roofs and poorly ventilated attics cause other problems you may not think about. Here are a few of the warning signs that it may be time to re-roof.
Missing, cracked, or curled shingles
Possible cause: Shingles have reached the end of their useful life.
Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your shinglesPossible cause: Loss of granules due to age of shingles.
Stains on ceilings and walls, or mold and mildew
Possible causes: Inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage or inadequate ventilation.
Dry-rotted overhangs, and/or siding
Possible cause: Improper starter shingles or clogged gutters.
Roof leaks into attic when icy
Possible cause: Inadequate shingle underlayment allows water from ice dams to leak into attic.
Leaky roof due to wind-driven rain
Possible cause: Leaky or inadequate shingle underlayment or deteriorated flashing.
Blistering and/or peeling paint
Possible cause: Excessive temperature or high humidity due to poor attic ventilation.
High Energy Bills
Possible cause: Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating/cooling system to run excessively.
