Roofing 101: Everything You Need to Know

Welcome to our Roofing 101 page. Here we’ll dive into common questions people have before getting a new roof. You’ll learn:

How to Know When to Replace Your Roof

You think you might need a new roof, but you’re not sure how to tell. Well, here are some signs to look for which might indicate it’s time to replace your roof.

  • Missing or broken shingles
  • Cracked or curling shingles
  • Black sand or tiny gravel (granules) in your gutters or coming out of your downspouts
  • Algae, lichens, moss, or black streaking
  • Leaking and/or water spots in your ceiling
  • Hail or wind damage
  • Your roof is over ten years old

If you have one or more of these signs, it’s a good idea to contact a licensed and insured professional roofing company for a roof inspection.
