The weather in Severna Park is slowly starting to get warmer as Spring creeps up on us. This means that it is a great time to inspect your shingle roof and see if you may need a replacement. The harsh winter weather and snowfall can really take a toll on your roof, so you want to make sure it’s in good shape for the April showers that are approaching. Here are some ways to know when it’s time to replace your shingle roof in your Severna Park home.
The actual shingles on your roof will let you know when it’s time to replace them. The first thing to look for is any curling or clawing shingles that may be present. This means that they are starting to lift at the edges. This makes them more fragile and susceptible to being uplifted by the wind. Curling shingles are a sign of old age and can also be a result of excessive heat.
Bare spots can occur on your shingle roof if your gutter system isn’t working properly. This causes the water that’s supposed to be drained away from your home to get onto your roof and wash away granules over time. The granules are what protect the shingles from the weather elements. Loss of granules and bare spots can also form simply because your shingle roof is getting older.
Broken Or Missing Shingles
This is very important to look for because if your shingles are actually broken or missing, they need to be replaced as soon as possible. The shingles on your roof are what give your roof the ability to shed water off of it. If shingles are missing, it provides an entry point for water. With spring showers soon approaching, you want to address this problem immediately.
If you notice that your shingles are buckling inward, that is another sign that your shingle roof may need to be replaced soon. Similar to curling shingles, this makes them a lot more fragile and open to wind damage. This could result simply from old age or because of water damage to your roof.
