Common Signs that You Need a New Roof Installation

If you notice any of these signs, it's important to consult with a roofing professional to assess the condition of your roof and determine if a replacement is necessary.

Age of the Roof

The age of your roof is a primary factor. Most asphalt shingle roofs last around 20 to 30 years. If your roof is approaching or surpassing this age range, it's time to consider a replacement.

Curling or Buckling Shingles

Shingles that are curling at the edges or buckling in the middle are a sign of weathering and potential roof failure.

Missing or Damaged Shingles

Missing shingles or those that are cracked, torn, or otherwise damaged can expose your roof to water infiltration and require prompt attention.

Granule Loss

Excessive granule loss on asphalt shingles can indicate the shingles are deteriorating, leaving your roof less protected against the elements.

Moss and Algae Growth

Excessive moss or algae growth can weaken the shingles and cause moisture retention, leading to premature deterioration.

Leaks or Water Stains

Water leaks or stains on your ceiling or walls are clear indicators of roof issues and should be addressed immediately.

Sagging Roof Deck

A sagging roof deck is a serious structural issue and a clear sign that your roof needs attention.

Visible Sunlight Through the Roof Boards

If you can see daylight through the roof boards from your attic, it's a sign that your roof's integrity has been compromised.

High Energy Bills

A roof that's not functioning properly can lead to poor insulation and ventilation, resulting in higher energy bills.

Roof Valleys

If the shingles in the valleys of your roof are deteriorating or missing, it can leave your roof vulnerable to leaks.

Excessive Wear and Tear

If your roof has endured extreme weather events, like storms, hail, or heavy winds, it may have suffered damage that requires a new installation.

Shingle Granules in Gutters

Finding excessive granules from your shingles in your gutters is a sign that your roof is shedding its protective layer.

Mold or Mildew Growth

The presence of mold ormildew on your roof can indicate moisture issues that require attention.

Neighborhood Roof Replacements

If many homes in your neighborhood are having their roofs replaced, it might be a sign that your area is experiencing aging roofs that need upgrading.

Roofing Inspection

Regular professional inspections can catch early signs of roof deterioration that may not be immediately obvious to the untrained eye.

Why We Don't Recommend Layering Roof Shingles to Lower Mainland Homeowners

It's recommended to remove the old roofing materials before installing a new roof. This allows for proper inspection, addressing underlying issues, ensuring proper ventilation, and maximizing the longevity of the new roof. Always consult with a professional roofing contractor to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

There are 3 main reasons we do not recommend "roof overlaying":

  1. Increases the weight load, potentially causing structural problems. Concealed issues like rot and water damage may worsen, shortening the new roof's lifespan as heat from the old roofing accelerates roof deterioration
  2. Void warranties from roofing material manufacturers, potentially leaving you without coverage for problems. Inspections become challenging, raising the risk of hidden damage and potential insurance claim issues, leading to out-of-pocket expenses
  3. "Roof-overlays" can appear cost-effective due to lower labor expenses, yet they can result in pricier future repairs. They could lower resale value due to hidden problems and increased expenses. Moreover, they might compromise energy efficiency by impacting insulation and ventilation systems.
