Is It Time To Replace Your Roof? 3 Roof-Repair Signs To Watch For

Is it time to replace your roof?

It’s been an extraordinarily long Minnesota winter, even for the toughest among us. But now that sunshine, clear skies, and warmer days are upon us, it’s the perfect time to pull out your trusty, stable ladder and climb up to take a good look at your roof. Think this winter was roughfor you? Just imagine how tough it must have been on your roof!

Three roof-repair signs to watch for

1. Curling shingles

Once you are up on that ladder, take a few moments to visually inspect your roof’s shingles. How do the shingles look? Are the sides curling at all? If so, this is a typical sign of roof wear and it’s a clear sign of roof wear.

2. Granule loss 

Next, take a peek in your gutters. Do you see excessive amounts of shingle granules sitting in the gutter? (Shingle granules look like large grains of sand). If you do spot some, this is another sign of advanced roof wear.

3. Leaky roof

Is there a spot inside your home were you experience consistent roof leaks? If this is case, this is something you’ll definitely want to get a professional roofer to take a closer look at.
