Situation: You have spotted a leak in your kitchen ceiling area. You and your husband go back and forth on whether you should try to repair the leak or call Feze Roofing to discuss installing a new roof.
Is your roof over 15 years old? If so, it may time to consider a new roof if your existing roofing system has begun to deteriorate.
2. Shingle Quality
The expected lifespan of your roof depends largely on the quality of your shingles. A high-quality shingle installed by Feze Roofing can last between 25-50 years. Common shingle problems include cracking and curling and can be caused by severe weather (hail and wind damage).
3. Dark Streaks
Those dark streaks on your roof have a name ‘Gloeocaspa Magma’ which is another word for mold and fungi. Dark streaks on your roof can be caused by dirt, defective shingles, mold and mildew. These dark streaks cause harm to your roof and can reduce your property value.
4. Growing Moss
A build-up of moss on your roof can damage your shingles and decrease the lifespan of your roof. Moss can grow on all surfaces of your shingles, and can lead to water damage and mold growth in the inside of your home.
5. Missing Granules
Over time, you may see granules start to fall off of your shingles. This can be a product failure and may mean that your roof is no longer able to protect your home from the elements.
