Your Roof Has Aged
If your roof is missing shingles or you see another issues that you think can be fixed, you must first consider the age of your roof before making any repairs. An aged/old roof is better off being replaced. Asphalt shingles have a lifespan of about 15 years, and concrete and clay tiles usually last 30 to 50 years. If you roof has reached this age, it is a good time to invest in a new one.
Roof Damage Is Spreading
Just by looking at the outside of your roof it is difficult to completely evaluate its entire condition. Damaged or missing shingles are often indicators that there could be a more severe issue. Signs of wood rot or mold growth in your attic or water discoloration in your ceiling is reason for immediate roof replacement.
