Do Your Roof Shingles Need Replacing?

What Are The Signs Of An Aging Shingle?

Everyone hopes that a roof lasts forever, but as with all things, roof shingles will age.  One thing to remember, however, is the fact that not all shingles will age at the same pace.  Different shingles have different life spans and the best way to assess how long your shingles will last is to check with the manufacturer’s warranty. For instance, if your warranty lasts for fifteen years, then you may want to begin checking for serious wear and tear around that time.  However, to truly keep your roof in prime condition, you should have your roof inspected by your local Minnesota roofing contractor at least twice a year.

When shingles become old or begin to show signs of aging, you may notice that they begin to crack, curl or become loose.  They may in fact even break off.  You should never ignore these signs or put them off. When you begin to see signs of aging in your shingles, you should contact your local Minnesota roofing contractor and have the roof assessed.  Putting off roof repairs to a later date can cause many expensive repairs in the long run.  It is always best to make roof repairs as soon as you notice the problems.  Aging shingles are no exception to the rule.

One of the most important steps that you can take to maximize the lifespan of your shingles is to have them inspected regularly by your local Minnesota roofing contractor. This should be a part of your total roof maintenance system and can help ensure that you derive the most benefit from your roof.  If your experienced roofing contractor determines that shingles need to be replaced, you should not attempt to do the work yourself.  You should always have an experienced roofer handle your roofing needs, including replacing or repairing aging or damaged shingles.  By having your local roofing contractor repair shingles as they become damaged, you will delay the need for a complete roof replacement.
