if you experience a leak in your roof that trickles into your attic and ceiling, you probably need new shingles. You may need a new roof. The average asphalt shingle roof last from 20 to 25 years. Shingles that curl up along the edge, buckle, or appear to be detached from the roof should be replaced immediately. Look at the slope of the roof from a distance. Try to spot missing shingles, especially in the valley area of the roof where water runs off into rain gutters.
Homeowners are never encouraged to climb onto their roof. This is dangerous work for anyone who does not have the proper safety equipment.
Storm Damage to Roof Shingles
You may have granules from the roofing material falling into your rain gutters after a heavy storm. This is an indication that your roof shingles should be inspected by professional roofing technicians. You may need several shingles in one area replaced while the rest of the roof is in good condition.
Branches from trees that land on your roof can also damage shingles. This may be a small job in an isolated area of the roof, but it should also be repaired immediately.
