Do I Really Need A New Roof? Key Roofing Danger Signals

A leak in the attic

A Leak In The Attic

After a strong storm or wind-driven rain, take a look in the attic for signs of leaking. It could indicate damaged shingles, inadequate underlayment or damaged flashing.

Stains on interior ceilings and walls - mold growth

Stains On Interior Ceilings And Walls - Mold Or Mildew Growth

Stains, or worse, mold, can be caused by leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside.

Missing, Cracked or Buckling Shingles

Missing, Cracked Or Curled Shingles

Dry, cracked or easily broken shingles have reached the end of their useful life, and it's time to invest in a new roof.


Exterior Decay In Sheathing Or Siding

Excess moisture can also contribute to decay.


Dark "Diry Looking" Areas On Your Roof

Vegetation, fungus, mold or algae growth can cause dark stains on your shingles. That doesn't necessarily mean you need a new roof, but if you do choose to replace your shingles, make sure you choose StainGuard protection - available on many GAF shingles.
