Will Your Colorado Springs Roof Last Another Winter?

Do you have an aging roof? Are you concerned that it won’t withstand another harsh Colorado winter? If so, now is the time to find out! Let’s take a closer look at the signs of an aging roof.

The lifespan of your roof is dependent on the type of roofing application you have.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt are the most common type of residential roofing application, is expected to last between 20 and 25 years. Concrete tile shingles can last upwards of 50 years and clay tile roofs can last up to 100. It’s important to determine the type of roof you currently have and its age. If you are not sure, a roofing professional can help you determine the general age of your roof. If you are nearing the end of the expected lifespan of your roof, it’s important to keep a close eye on it. Watch for signs of damage and consider having a roofing inspection.

Curling or Buckling Singles

Curling or buckling singles are the sign of a failing roofing system. This is typically evident in the slopes of your roof. If you notice curling shingles, you are nearing the end of the lifespan of your existing roof.

Missing singles are a clear indication that your roof is on its last leg. Loose shingles can begin to fall off in high winds or heavy rain storms. If you notice even a single missing shingle, it is time to have your roof inspected.

Asphalt roofs contain thousands of tiny granules. As the roof ages, it begins to shed granules. If you notice lots of granules on the ground near the watershed of your roof, or in your gutters, this is a sign that your roof is aging.

From missing singles to hail damage, if your roof has sustained damage from recent storm activity, it is important to act quickly. What begins as minor damage can become a costly issue quickly.

Colorado Springs Roofing: Now is the Ideal Time to Repair or Replace

The late summer and early fall months are the ideal time to complete a Colorado Springs roofing repair or replacement. Why? Because a clear day ranging between 45 and 50 degrees is considered to be the ideal weather condition for applying an asphalt roof. This temperature allows the single strips to form a thermal seal that will withstand brutal Colorado weather for the next two decades. If you fear that your roof might fail this winter, it’s important to explore your options before temperatures dip and snowfall begins.
