No matter what kind of roof you have, it is reasonable for you to expect it to last for many, many years. However, even something that is built to last like your roof is not immune to the withering effect of time. And since it is constantly exposed to the elements, your roof is also prone to damage. While roof damage and normal wear and tear caused by aging may seem like the same thing, they are actually not.
Faded Color Most shingles lose some of their color over time, especially if it’s a dark shade. This is caused by constant exposure to sunlight. Thankfully, this problem is mostly a visual one rather than a protective one, but it could mean that your roof is nearing the end of its serviceable life.
Dark Spots Asphalt shingles have tiny rock-like objects covering them. As these granules fall off over time, you will notice dark spots where the granules once were. This is another natural sign of aging.
Cracked Shingles Cracked shingles are caused by a variety of things, such as storms, tree branches or even animals. If you notice cracked shingles on your roof, be sure to call your roofing contractor as soon as possible.
Curling Shingles Just as with cracked shingles, shingles that are beginning to lift or buckle will need to be replaced right away. This type of damage is caused by different things, such as high winds, excessive moisture or cold weather.
