Signs it’s time to Replace Your Roof: What Signs to Look for

Think it may be time for a new roof but not exactly sure? Well, we’ve got you covered. We understand a new roof is a big investment, but it will ultimately save on costs in the long run.

If you keep having to repair your roof, these costs will accumulate and end up costing you more than if you were to just install a new roof. Moreover, leaving a roof on your home or business that is in bad conditions can lead to leaks and mold and other damage … yikes! That’s why it’s important to have your roof regularly inspected and keep your roof maintained.

If you’re suspecting that you may have roof damage, then keep on reading to see if the signs we provide match up with your roof’s symptoms or you can always call 813-579-5789 to have our roofing contractor come take a look at your property.

Missing Shingles/Granules

Having a couple of shingles that are missing can be a simple fix, but if you constantly have shingles coming off or there’s a large area of shingles missing, it may be time for a new roof.

Missing granules can also be a sign that you need a new roof. Check your gutters for a build up of granules since this is an indication that your roof is losing granules.

Tampa’s roofing professionals at Goodfriend Roofing know exactly what to look for and can show you pictures of your roof’s current condition at the time of the consultation. Schedule your initial consultation appointment.

Shingle Damage

Are you noticing that your shingles are curling or buckling? This is a clear indication that your roof has aged and it may be time for a new roof.

Buckling and curling occur from moisture build up in the attic which forces nails to push up. This is caused by a roof having poor ventilation.

To prevent further damage, like water seeping into the interior of your home. Contact Goodfriend Roofing to schedule an initial consultation.


Another issue that can arise from poor ventilation is mold. Warm air that becomes trapped in your attic will rise to the roof and cause rust and mold growth.

Some roofing companies may install too much insulation which blocks off vents. That’s why it’s important to hire a roofing company that is well experienced and professional.

Mold growth is an extreme health hazard, so this shouldn’t be something to let go on the back burner.

High Energy Bills

High energy bills can be avoided with a roof that is in good condition and is installed properly. Your energy bills may be high because of poor ventilation and insulation allowing energy to escape your home.

Not only will a new roof protect your property, but it will also save you money in the long run as it cuts the costs of your energy bills. You will notice that your new roof will keep your house cool in the summer months and warm in the winter months.
