That’s why it comes at no surprise that it will suffer the most abuse and experience the most wear and tear than any part of your home.

To be fair, replacing a roof is usually more expensive than having it repaired. That being said, there are situations with your home’s roof that will make it wiser to just go ahead and start from scratch. Our partner at Owens Corning lists some signs telling you that your roof may need replacement:
Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped
Misshapen shingles allow water and other damaging elements to seep into your roof. If most of your roof’s shingles are damaged, it most likely means that the supporting deck and the layers under it may have suffered damage as well.
Bald spots where granules are missing
Bald spots on your shingles means that the granules which make the shingles waterproof are already gone and that water may have already gone into your roof and caused damage.
Crevices in your shingles indicate that they are no longer working and are damaged beyond repair. If most of your roof has this kind of shingle, this usually indicates that the roof is damaged as well.
Your roof is at least 20 years old
Most roofing materials have a lifespan of twenty years. if your roof is already this old, it may be time to consider replacing it.
The roof just looks old and worn
Even if your roof is less than two decades old, a tattered roof means it has already outlived its usefulness.
Neighbors are getting new roofs
Considering that you live in the same area, chances are you and your neighbors’ roofs have gone through the same ordeal. If their roofs are already in a condition that warrants replacement, odds are your roof will need the same.
Streaks on a roof is usually a symptom of algae or moss. Both can be a problem because they retain water that can cause the shingles and roof to decay prematurely. If a large part of the roof has smudges, it will be a good precaution to have them replaced.
As your local roofing expert in NJ, American Construction can help you with your roof installation.
