It may seem difficult to decide when to replace your roof, but if you know what to look for, your roof will often let you know that it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. Look for the following telltale signs:

  • Excessive shingle granules in gutters and washed out of downspouts
  • Curling, cupped or missing shingles
  • Moisture damage on your ceilings
  • Cracked or discolored interior drywall
  • Decaying shingles
  • Visible cracks
  • Wind or hail damage
  • Rusted or missing flashing
  • Increased energy bills

Choosing which type of roof is right for you will depend upon numerous factors, including your budget, style, and needs. Before making your choice, be sure to consider how long each material would last. Some materials, although initially more expensive, require less maintenance and therefore last longer. An asphalt shingle roof might last 20 years, but a metal roof can last more than 50.
