Signs Your Roof Needs Replacement: A Charlotte Homeowner’s Guide

Your roof shields your home from the elements, but over time, it may deteriorate, requiring replacement. Here are five key signs indicating it’s time for a new roof.

  1. Missing or Damaged Shingles: Look for curling, buckling, or absent shingles, leaving your roof vulnerable to leaks.
  2. Leaks: Water stains on ceilings or walls signal leaks, indicating roof damage that needs immediate attention.
  3. Sagging Areas: Sagging roof sections may indicate structural damage, requiring professional inspection.
  4. Excessive Granule Loss: Granules in gutters or around the house suggest aging shingles needing replacement.
  5. Age-Related Wear: Roofs typically last 20-25 years; if yours is nearing this, plan for replacement to avoid unexpected issues.

Conclusion: By recognizing these signs and acting promptly, you can protect your home and ensure its longevity. Schedule a professional inspection if you notice any of these indicators to maintain your home’s safety and value.
