Most homeowners don’t think about their roofs until there’s a serious problem. That is a problem. Your roof is one of the most crucial parts of your home, and at some time, it will wear out. It’s not easy for homeowners to identify the signs that indicate the need for a new roof, but Quinn Roofing Solutions can help you out.

Let’s discuss the signs that you may need a new roof for your home.
Shingles Are Buckling and Curling
An asphalt shingle is designed to stay flat and flexible. However, due to weather exposure and age, its shape starts to change over time. The corners will eventually curl up, and the shingle will look like it’s buckling.
It isn’t an immediate issue if it’s just one or two shingles. But it’s important that a professional roofer assess your roof’s condition and perform repairs to prolong its life. If multiple shingles are buckling or curling, you should look at a replacement.
Shingles Are Broken or Cracked
Shingles get brittle over time, and they will start to deteriorate. A single cracked or broken shingle can be replaced, but your roof can be compromised if this condition accelerates.
Roofs can break, or cracks can appear because of storms. A strong wind can pull away shingles from the roof surface. If you notice damage after a storm, have a trained professional assess your roof. Most storm damage repairs or replacements can often be covered by your insurance company.
The Roof’s Age Is Over 20 Years
Standard asphalt shingle roof lasts up to 20 years. When a roof reaches 20, it should be inspected by a roofing professional and assessed before the problems arise.
