Roofs, unfortunately, do not last forever. The best thing to do to keep your roof in great condition is to have your roof checked yearly by a professional roofer.
Some common signs of roof aging include shingles that are cracking, curling, missing, or loose. Shingles do not age at the same rate, and the best way to gauge how long your shingles will last is to check the manufacturer’s warranty. The aging rate of your shingles will really depend on two things, the shingle’s quality and the weather outside. Your local roofer should advise you on the best shingle for your home, but if you suspect that there is damage to your shingles, make sure to contact a professional roofer. Depending on certain weather conditions, your shingles may age more quickly and receive more damage.
After you suspect shingle damage or aging and call a local roofing company to inspect, do not ignore the warning signs. If the contractor sees that your shingles are damaged, have your shingles replaced or repaired as needed. If you wait to fix your shingles or any roof damage, the problem can worsen and the repairs can be much more expensive.
In no circumstance should you try to fix the shingles yourself. Fixing a roof is dangerous and should be left to the professionals. Make sure to have an experienced roofer fix all your roofing problems.
