Does my house need a roof replacement?

We often get asked by Calgary homeowners if they need a roof replacement or could they wait a little while longer. This question always comes up among homeowners with an older roof.

You realize your roof is looking old and weathered.  In some cases it might be just normal tear and wear where the granules that help with waterproofing are gone.

All roofs eventually need to be replaced. The question is when, how long can your or want to wait. This is when you should call a roofing contractor and ask for an inspection.

Here are some common indicators that you need a roof replacement:

  • Curled shingles, these will eventually break
  • Broken and missing shingles
  • Moss or mold on shingles
  • Loosing granules. You might notice this after a more aggressive downpour
  • Pools of water on the roof
  • Outside of the house has some streaking on the walls

The easiest way to find out if you need a roof replacement for your house is to call a reputable roofing company to inspect the roof.

Remember, the cost of repairing or replacing your roof is less than the damage your house might have if there is a leaky roof on it.
