Missing granules on the shingles 

The loss of granules does not affect the waterproofing of the roof, so if they are missing you won’t necessarily get leaks.  But the granules protect the asphalt in the shingle from being damaged by the UV rays of the sun. So once they go, the shingles will wear out faster. 

Curling shingles

Curling Is the result of the asphalt in the shingles drying and shrinking over time. They become brittle as a result. In high winds, they will begin to get blown off. There is no repair for this other than replacing the tiles affected or, if widespread on your roof, time to replace the roof.

Missing shingles on the roof 

If this is happening, it means that the shingles have dried, curled, and cracked. Obviously, if the shingles are in your yard then they aren’t on your roof! So when you start to see this it is time to get that roof replaced.

Age of the roof 

This is an important factor to consider when deciding if you need a simple repair or a full roof replacement. It is an unfortunate fact that the older styles of asphalt shingles do not last as long as their warranties would indicate. With a metal roof, you can get a limited 50-year warranty.  

These are just a few of the indicators that you may need to replace your asphalt roof. For more information about metal roofing material and installation, we encourage you to get in touch with a representative at Metal Roofing Solutions today.
