If you spot any cracked, missing or curled shingles this means it may have reached its lifespan, you may need to invest in a new roof.

Any dark areas on your roof can signify protective granules have been lost. Cleaning you shingles can be an option.

Exterior decay or siding on your roof can be caused by poor attic ventilation or moisture. By reducing the amount of moisture going into a wall can help reducing decay.

Peeling of paint either interior or exterior caused by trapped moisture can cause damaging roofs. Trapped moisture in your home or high humidity from poor attic ventilation or kitchen or bathroom can cause peeling of paint. Try maintaining the air flow in your attic to reduce humidity.
