At Blue Sky Roofing, we see all sorts of roofs! Ben Pond from our team recently helped a homeowner who noticed their once vibrant shingles looked dull and faded. It turned out their roof was nearing the end of its lifespan. Replacing a shingle roof can set you back anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000, depending on several things like roof size and materials.

This blog post will help you spot the warning signs that your shingle roof may be getting close to needing replacement. We'll also explore the factors that can affect the cost of a new roof replacement.

Signs Your Shingle Roof Needs Attention:

  • Age: Asphalt shingle roofs typically last 15-20 years. If your roof is approaching or has surpassed this age, it's a good time to start thinking about replacement.
  • Missing or damaged shingles: Keep an eye out for shingles that are missing, cracked, or curling. These are signs that the roofing material is deteriorating and needs to be addressed.
  • Leaks or water damage: Dark brownish patches on your ceiling or leaks in your attic are clear indications of a roof problem. Don't delay in getting your roof inspected if you notice any of these signs.
  • Granule loss: Asphalt shingles have protective granules that wear away over time. Check your gutters for a handful of granules clumped together or bald spots on your shingles.
