Signs It’s Time for a Roof Replacement

One of your homes crucial components is the roof. When working properly it protects the rest of your home from water damage and the elements. Overtime your roof will start to show wear and tear which you shouldn't ignore. So today I am sharing with you signs it's time for a roof replacement.

Water damage upstairs/ in your attic
Moisture marks, brown, yellow, or grey stains, and peeling paint on walls and/or ceilings could all indicate a damaged/ leaking roof. By getting in a professional roofer to inspect the roof any minor issues can be sorted before they become a major issue. A trained professional also has the tools and safety techniques to get up on your roof and check for damage.

Roof sags
A droopy sagging roof needs replacing before any further damage is made to your home. Sagging is a sign that trapped moisture has rotted away boards in the roof. 

You start noticing moss/mould
Moss/mould growing on your roof is a clear sign you need to replace your roof especially as it indicates trapped moisture, which can ruin a roof. 

Damaged tiles, flashing, shingles etc
If any of your roofs supporting structure is missing or damaged than it's a straightaway red flag. Proper support is needed to ensure the roof is structurally sound and will not be at risk of collapse.

Your roof is more than 20 years old
On average your roof should last you 20 years or more depending on the material/s used. It's definitely worthwhile finding out when it was last replaced.
