How do I know if it is time to replace my roof?


Research indicates that the aging process for a roof begins soon after the shingles are installed and progresses rapidly during the initial curing phase of its life cycle. During this stage, granule loss may occur, small blisters may develop, or the shingles may curl slightly at their edges. You may even notice that this curling is more pronounced during cold weather and the shingles may lie flat as temperatures rise. The good news, however, is that after this curing stage the shingles enter a long period of slow aging, which lasts for the major portion of the shingle’s natural life.


The residential structures in New England have to withstand some serious punishment all year long, with nothing taking more direct abuse than their roofs. Roof replacement is a fact of life for New England residents and those in surrounding areas, as the effects of exposure to sunlight and heat, rain, wind and snow combine throughout the year to destroy roofs and their supporting framework. This is not only an aesthetic problem, as a leaking or degraded roof is a hazard by itself, but it also provides a means for the elements to get in and attack other parts of the structure as well. Damaged and older roofs are also not as energy-efficient as modern materials, which often reduce energy needs immediately, allowing a replacement to pay for itself in a very short amount of time.
