Your home’s roof can suffer extensive wear and tear from being exposed to years of sun, rain, wind and other challenging weather conditions. But it can be difficult for a homeowner to judge when a roof is at the end of its useful life. Or whether roof repairs from a qualified Minneapolis roofer like Family First Construction can extend your roof’s life a few more years.

When we conduct a roof inspection, we use the following checklist to look for the following signs that a roof needs to be replaced. One or more of these signs usually indicates a problem:

  • Worn, cracked, curled or missing shingles, shakes, or tiles

  • Excessive rust on a metal roof

  • Streaks or stains along the homes exterior walls 

  • Excessive mold or moss growth on the roof surface

  • Loose or missing flashing around vents and chimneys

  • Loose or hanging gutters

  • Staining of rafters or trusses in attic space

  • Sagging or staining on underside of roof decking

  • Excessive shingle granules appearing in gutters or on ground near downspout 

  • If your roof is older than 20 years it is probably nearing the end of its useful life

  • Drooping or sagging in the roof sheathing 

  • Ice Dams and Excessive Icicles can point to either a roofing or insulation/ventilation issue

A worn roof can lead to permanent damage to the overall structure of your home. Many people don’t realize they have roofing problems until their ceiling leaks or puddles appear on the floor. Only then – when it may be too late - will they call a Minneapolis roofing contractor.
