Best Wishes (literally) for your Roof’s Silver Jubilee!


And while 25 years is a long time— it’s actually all the time you’ll ever get for your roof. The mode of installation and type of shingles can help provide an insight on how long your roof will last. However, if your roof is already going on 30, my best wishes for you and your family.


Start Inside


Look at the room closest to your roof for any signs of leaking. Streaks in your walls are a telltale, so check it out if you can’t see any obvious signs of water running. Also, watch out for holes in the structure, as it’s an indication of the roof’s state of corrosion.

Shingle Out the Broken Shingles


Inspect your roof. Are your shingles curving at the edges? Or maybe bent out in the middle? Does it have chinks, cracks, or breaks? Does it look weather beaten? Is it covered in algae and mold? Are you worried that it might affect the structure of your shingles? If your answer is yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and I said yes, help me already; then a roof installation should already be in order. You’re welcome.


Where are My Granules?!


If your shingles are looking a lot more bare than usual, check your drain pipes and spillway. If your shingles’ granules are indeed there, and there are a lot more than you expected— that might be an underlying problem.
