Is it finally time to get a new roof? It may be, but do you know the signals of a new roof?

Many homeowners believe their roofs to be in proper working order, when they are actually begging to be replaced. A roof protects your home and is the defining feature of what makes a home a home, rather than just a space with four walls. To best protect your home from the elements, it’s important that your roof is in proper working order. Here are some signs that should indicate to you if it’s time to replace your roof.

The age of your roof. How old is your existing roof? Most experts agree that a typical roof will last somewhere between 20 and 25 years. It also depends on how old the roof was when you moved in, whether you only have one layer of shingles, and if it is properly ventilated. If upon reading this you realized your roof fits all of the limits described here, it may be time for a new roof.

If your shingles look cracked and curling. Shingles that are curled or cracked is another sign that you need a roof. Take a look at your roof to see if your roof is losing granules and just looking old and gross.

Missing shingles. A sign that is as clear as day is missing shingles. If you see any bald spots on your roof, it’s time that you buy those new shingles to give it purpose once again.

Another sign you may need a new roof is if a storm knocks over a tree and it crashes through the top of your house. But who will pay for that? The tree? No! It’ll be your home insurance.

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
