Replacing your roof is a big investment, but delaying replacement can cause additional damage to your home. Here’s how you can know when it’s time to replace your roof.

Overall Age
Asphalt shingles can last anywhere from 15-30 years depending on the type and quality. However, in areas with extreme summer heat like Houston, the maximum is typically 20 years, with some roofs needing to be replaced by 12 years. That’s why it’s important to consider the condition of your roof in addition to its overall age.

Shingle Damage
Damage to shingles from storms can take many forms. If the majority of your roof is pitted, bruised, or dented from hail, you likely need to replace it. Buckling, curling, or numerous missing shingles is another sign to look for. Check for missing granules or a buildup of granules in the rain gutters or around the foundation. All these are signs that your roof is wearing out from weather exposure.

Major Structural Issues
Major structural problems are usually easy to identify. If part of your roof has been damaged by trees or debris in a major storm, it probably needs to be replaced. Sagging areas mean the decking is likely saturated with water. Multiple, persistent leaks and the ability to see daylight in the attic also mean the roof needs to be replaced.
