Know When Your Shingle Roof Needs Replacing
If you need help determining whether or not you need a new roof, there are some key indicators that a shingle roof replacement needs to be considered. Matute Roofing encourages all homeowners to conduct regular roof inspections to catch any issues before they become major problems.
- Age of the Roof
- Growth of Organic Material
- Shingles are Cracked, Broken, or Damaged
- Bald Spots or Missing Granules
- Irregular Shaped Shingles
- Missing Shingles
- Roof Debris
Your Asphalt Shingle Roof is 20 Years Old
The typical life of a standard 3-tab asphalt shingle roof is about 25 years. Most homeowners only consider their roof’s condition once they experience an issue like a leaky roof, discover missing shingles, or need to address structural issues. If your roof was installed by certified professionals, like those with Matute Roofing, and adequately ventilated, you should get close to 25 years out of your shingle roof.
As a homeowner, you want to maintain your roof to avoid issues that may cut short your roof’s lifespan. Trustworthy roofing contractors suggest homeowners replace their roof around 80% of the manufacturer’s life of the roof. Matute Roofing believes homeowners should consider replacing their roofs around the 20-year mark to stay within the suggested standards and ensure the health of their most significant asset.
Wood roof shingles – Replace between 20-25 years
Composite shingles – Replace between 12-20 years
At Matute Roofing, we understand that replacing a roof can be expensive and overwhelming. Our team is always here to answer your questions and help you navigate the process of selecting a new shingle roof for your property. From choosing the right materials to understanding warranties, our experienced crew is available to explain the entire process from start to finish.
The Roof is Growing Plants or Moss
If plants are growing on your roof, as a homeowner, you should recognize that means trouble is brewing. Organic material on your roof indicates something is wrong, like poor ventilation or a broken seal. Matute Roofing will inspect your roof and determine the cause of the growth, then offer solutions to get you back on track.
Matute Roofing’s team examines each shingle to evaluate if the roof is experiencing trapped moisture, which causes mold, moss, or fungi growth. If our roofers find any such growth, Matute Roofing works with the homeowner to ensure they understand the issues created by the organic growth. Often, it is suggested that a shingle roof replacement be completed as soon as possible for our customer’s home safety and structural integrity. Roof failure is imminent when a roof is holding moisture, which can be a costly expense.
Shingles are Cracked, Broken, or Damaged
Advanced age and the harsh elements of New Jersey can take a toll on your shingles. Strong winds, inclement weather, hail, and falling trees can cause physical damage to asphalt shingles. Depending on the size of the damage, a shingle roof replacement may be your only course of action. The Matute Roofing team will evaluate if a repair can be made to help reduce costs, but ultimately, our team will suggest the best option to extend the life of your home roofing system.
Bald Spots or Missing Granules
Granules are what give asphalt shingles their color and texture. Over time, they can wear down and fall off, causing the underlying asphalt to be exposed. While some granules are lost in production, transportation, and installation, it is never good to see bald spots on your shingles.
Matute Roofing‘s experienced team knows this issue makes your roof more vulnerable to the elements and could lead to leaks. Let our GAF-certified team assist with the replacement of your shingles. With a variety of colors and options, Matute Roofing can meet your timeline and budget.
Irregular Shaped Shingles
When a roof’s shingles are not flat, this is a sure sign that the home’s shingles are damaged. Whether from drying or shrinking due to age, brittle shingles are a problem. These irregularities could also be a sign that water has been able to permeate the spaces between shingles.
Shingles can blow off the roofing system during severe weather and high winds. There is no repairing this issue, and a replacement will be necessary. Matute Roofing will help you select shingles that meet your needs and budget. We will have your home looking fantastic again in no time.
Matute Roofing will always recommend a replacement when a significant number of shingles are missing. If it’s just a few, a professional should thoroughly inspect the area to avoid problems down the road. Water can seep through the holes and damage the roof decking and framing.
If caught early, the homeowner may get away with a repair. However, if there is too much damage, Matute Roofing suggests replacing the entire roof for optimal performance and peace of mind.
When there is too much debris on your roof, it can cause shingles to become brittle and break. It can also cause moisture to be trapped on top of the shingles. This damage is especially true in the case of tree limbs and leaves. They prevent air circulation and trap heat on your roof when they pile up. Debris will cause your shingles to expand and contract, leading to cracking and breakage.
To avoid the dreaded debris damage, Matute Roofing strongly recommends homeowners examine their roofs frequently and remove any debris, especially after inclement weather or a storm with strong winds. If debris is not near the roof’s edge, call a professional from Matute Roofing to assist with removing the debris, this small action prevents damage and keeps your roof in great shape. Avoid walking across your roof to remove debris. This action is a significant safety risk, but walking on your roof can lead to other issues, including damage to the roofing deck.
Benefits of Roof Replacement
There are many benefits to roof replacement. One of the best benefits is that it will prolong the life of your roof. Another benefit to replacing a roof instead of just repairing damage is that there should be an increase in functionality and energy efficiency throughout your home. Replacing an old roof with a new one can also increase the value of your home.
- Longer Life For Your Roof
