Roofs can naturally reach the end of its useful life without experiencing roof failure. Overtime a roof will start to look old and worn, even when you are doing preventive maintenance on your home. If you delay replacing an old worn out roof it could result in greater issues down the road. Below are some potential signs your roof needs repaired.

Potential signs your roof needs repaired:

Shingle edges are curled

Curling shingles are signs that your roof could be aged or excessive heat damage. Other signs that could make your shingles curled would be wind or ice. West Texas will experience excessive heat, crazy wind, and ice. You will be on the watch out because your shingles will soon become ridged and can break easily and lose tab edges.

Bald Spots where granules are missing

Aging roof systems or physical damage can cause bare spots and loss of granules.  When the protective granules of a shingle are lost, the shingle will begin to harden from heat and sun exposure. Therefore, the loss of Granules on a roof system will accelerate the aging and shingle decay which can become an entry point for water, which will result in roof damage.

Broken Shingles

Broken shingles will weaken a roof systems ability to shed water and can be an entry point of water. Two of the most common causes of damaged shingles are excessive wind and physical damage. 

Buckling Shingles

Shingles that are starting to buckle are visible and waved distortions that run vertical up a roof slope. Buckled shingles are vulnerable to wind and ice damage and can be torn off easily. Roof age and wet or poorly installed underlayment are common causes of buckling shingles as well.

Damaged Flashings

Due to your flashings being located around your skylights, valleys, eaves, and chimneys these are subject to separation. Flashings can expand and contract which will cause fasteners to become loose and the bottom-flashing flange to lift thus allowing water to enter.
