Keep reading to learn more signs that it’s time to have your roof replaced.

#4. There is algae or moss covering your shingles. 

Although the growth of algae or moss is primarily an aesthetic problem, getting rid of that moss on your own can lead to issues. If you try to scrape or powerwash the algae or moss, it could end up scraping the granules off of your shingles, which renders them useless.

#5. Your roof is sagging. 

If your roof is sagging, it could be an indicator that there is a structural issue. In most cases, the structural problem for a sagging roof originates in the attic decking or the foundational supports.

#6. There is sunlight streaming through your attic. 

If light is streaming through your roof into your attic, it is a big problem. If sunlight can get into your attic, so can other things, such as rain. That’s why, when you check for light, you should also check for water stains.
