Do I need to replace my home’s Shingles?

If you have a leaky roof, you more than likely need some shingles replaced. Depending on the circumstances of your particular case, you might need a new roof altogether. The average asphalt shingle roof has a lifespan of approximately 20 to 25 years. Shingles that curl up along the edge, buckle, or appear to be detached from the roof should be replaced as soon as possible; delay can cause worse (and more expensive) problems. Check out the slope of the roof from a distance. Try to detect any missing shingles, especially in the valley area of the roof where water runs off into rain gutters. Damage there can be quite bad and water damage likely.

We never encourage homeowners to climb on their roof. Without the proper equipment and training, this is a dangerous activity and should be left to the professionals.

Storm Damage to your Roof Shingles

After a heavy storm, it is likely that you could have granules falling into your gutters. This is a sight that your roof shingles should be inspected by professional roofing professionals to determine if they should be replaced or repaired. Quite possibly, you could need several shingles in one area replaced while the rest of the roof is in proper condition. Heights Roofing offers complimentary roof inspections/estimates, so reach out to us today!

If there are trees near your home, its branches will likely land on your roof and can cause damage to the shingles. This could be a relatively small job in an isolated area of the roof, but it should also be repaired immediately to prevent further damage. It is a much more severe problem when a tree or several branches fall on the roof. We recommend that you do not try to remove branches or debris from the roof yourself. This is a job best left for the professionals. Safety should always be your top priority.
