Does it seem like your roof has deteriorated over the years? While roofs are built to withstand a lot of wear and tear, they do need to be replaced due to various circumstances. As a homeowner, knowing when it’s time to replace your roof is important for maintaining the long-term quality of your home’s structure and foundation.

Here are some of the most common warning signs you need a new roof for your Buffalo home:

Exceeded lifespan

Once a roof has exceeded its lifespan (which is typically 15-25 years depending on your roof’s materials and current condition), it’s important to seriously consider a full roof replacement for your Buffalo home. An old roof is very vulnerable to weather damage, making it a costly liability. As a roof reaches its projected lifespan, it’s best to start planning and budgeting for a new roof installation.

Severe water damage and leakage

Once water accumulates on your rooftop and causes leaks in your home, it’s time to seriously consider a new roof. While some leaks are minor, many of them are caused by loose or broken shingles that can become worse over time. This can often result in many water stains and the build-up of mold or mildew as more water enters your home and causes moisture in your attic.

Sagging roofline

A roof that’s drooping or looks like it has lost shape could indicate some major damage. While these issues can sometimes be repaired, often a full roof replacement is required. From framing issues to water saturation, there are many causes of deterioration that require immediate attention before they result in structural devastation of your home.
