3 Signs You Need to Replace Your Roof, Cincinnati, Ohio

Your roof is an essential part of your home. However, no matter what material it’s made of or how well it’s maintained, it won’t last forever. How do you know if you need a roof replacement? Here are a few signs to look for. 

When to Consider a Roof Replacement

1. The Roof Is Over 20 Years Old

No matter how well it’s maintained, your roof will start to show signs of wear once it hits the 20-year mark. Some roofing materials wear out slower or faster than others, so have a roofer check it out around this time. Even if the roof isn’t showing any visible signs of damage, there may be issues beneath the surface that a contractor will recognize.

2. The Roof Is Cracking or Bulging

They can develop into larger cracks, and eventually cause entire sections of the roof to break off. As for bulges, these signify the material is nearing the end of its lifespan. They can be caused by excessive moisture or a lack of proper ventilation, and these sections are likely to crack or break apart soon after.

3. The Gutters Are Full of Shingle Granules

The granule textures along your roof shingles help repel moisture and debris. When you notice more granules in your gutters than on the shingles themselves, it may be time for a roof replacement. While it is normal for small amounts of granules to come off the roof, if you notice them flowing out of your gutters after every rainfall, you may need a new roof.
