There are several warning signs that roofs are nearing their end. When it comes to the condition of your roof, it's important to pay attention to these signs and to be proactive. A new roof can be a large and costly project, but it is also a necessary part of owning and maintaining a healthy home. If you fail to act in time, you might have to repair more than just your roof. Choosing to ignore the sometimes subtle signs that your roof is failing can lead to not only more repair costs but also to your health and safety and all those living under your roof. When you notice any of these signs, it may be time to replace your roof.

Note: Do not climb on your roof to perform an inspection yourself. If you see any signs of trouble, look up from the ground with binoculars, or have APD Roofing do a roof inspection for you for free.


You have a few loose or missing shingles.

It may be due to storm damage, or your roof may be beyond repair. When your shingles fall off or become loose, you cannot protect your home from the elements.


Blistered, curled, cracked, or dried shingles.

In most cases, if your roof begins to show any of these signs, it has reached the end of its useful life, and you should consider replacing it to prevent further damage. There is also a possibility of blistering when there is too much moisture on the surface (high humidity levels). It usually occurs when the roof ventilation system is inadequate.


The roof is sagging.

A roof may sag due to several reasons, including being weak and deteriorating; improperly installed; or supporting too much weight (such as snow or ice). If your roof sags, it is a clear indication that it needs to be replaced. Without immediate attention, it may collapse.
