How Do You Know When You Need New Roofing?, Honolulu, Hawaii

Your roofing plays many vital roles, including protecting your family from the elements and improving your home’s energy efficiency. But as the team at Surface Shield Roofing Company in Honolulu, HI, explains, it will eventually need to be replaced. How do you know when it’s time for new roofing? There are a few warning signs you should watch out for.

Curling Shingles 

roofingAfter frequent exposure to direct sunlight, older shingles may begin to curl or buckle. This is a clear sign they are past their life expectancy and need to be replaced. In some cases, granules from your shingles may also begin to accumulate in your gutters around the same time curling takes place. With asphalt roofing, this problem usually begins to manifest when the roof is between 20 and 25 years old.

Missing Shingles 

If shingles blow off during a storm, you could need new roofing. This is especially true if shingles are missing from your roof valleys — the areas where rain flows on its way to the gutters. When shingles go missing from this area, you are at a significant risk of leaks and other maintenance problems.

Seeing Daylight

If you suspect there’s an issue with your roofing, go into your attic to check the condition of your roof boards. If daylight is peeking through, your roof needs to be replaced. This underlying area has more than likely already been damaged by moisture, which could easily seep into your home’s walls and insulation.

When you notice any of these signs, get in touch with Surface Shield Roofing Company as soon as possible. With a wide selection of roofing and coating options uniquely suited for Hawaii’s climate, the team will keep your home in top shape.
