Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, responsible not only for keeping the inside dry but also helping insulate the home, keeping it comfortable throughout the year. Spring is a great time to handle exterior home improvement projects and renovations, so it’s worth taking time to inspect your roof to see if yours needs replacement.

One of the most troublesome signs of a roof in need of serious repair or replacement, leaks may appear quietly and cause extensive damage before a property owner recognizes these problems. If you notice water damage in your attic or upper floors or can clearly see water spots on parts of your ceiling, your roof is probably leaking in at least one place.
- Shingle Damage
The shingles of your roof will eventually start to crack, chip, peel, and curl out of position. Do a quick visual inspection around your home and look for missing or damaged shingles. You may also want to check your gutters the next time you clean them and see if they are full of shingle granules.
- Sagging Spots
When water makes its way under your roof shingles and into the roof bed, it can quickly lead to rot and other problems. If you notice any spots on your roof that appear indented or sagging, the roof is in desperate need of attention.
Do you know how old your roof is, or do you know the last time it was completely replaced? Even the best asphalt shingle roofs will only last about 20 years under good conditions. Severe storms, pest damage, and many other variables can reduce this lifespan. If your roof is near the 20-year mark and you’re noticing problems, it’s time to consider replacement.
These are just a few of the most common signs of a roof in need of replacement. If you notice any other problems with your roof or want to arrange a professional inspection, Peak Construction in Hudson Valley can help. Contact us today to set up an appointment and we can give you our best advice.
