Your see it, but you don't always look at it like you should!

Meaning, there are telltale signs that your roof needs to be replaced and every homeowner needs to be aware of what to look for.

As a roofing contractor, our job is not only to replace older roofs, but to educate Michiana homeowners on what to look for as its aging.

Here are a few key things to look for when it's time to replace your roof:

  1. Curling or Broken Pieces: If you start seeing your shingles begin to curl or even the corners starting to break off, then it is a good indicator of brittle shingles and the integrity of your roof is in jeopardy.
  2. Missing Shingles: As your roof ages, becoming more brittle, you may start seeing shingles in your yard.  When this begins to happen, you're at risk for leaks to develop.  When water gets into a home, not only is your roof compromised, but you may run into mold issues. Once you start losing shingles it's time to take action immediately.  Have missing shingles...Here's the top 3 things you MUST know...Click here
  3. Water Damage: If you start seeing dark spots on your ceiling or smell a mildew odor, you have obvious water damage and your roof is failing to protect you. This is a red alert indicator that you need a roof inspection ASAP and an action plan to replace your roof.

What most Michiana residents don't know, in the case of missing shingles and other storm related damages, is that most policies will cover storm damages.  We have seen insurance companies from Elkhart, Goshen, Granger, South Bend and even down in Warsaw approve roofs to be replaced due to wind or hail storm damage.
