Recognizing Potential Problems
There are a lot of factors that contribute to the life expectancy of your roof. The type and quality of shingles, regional climate, and how often you clean it all play a role in determining how long your roof will last. One important factor is not always considered: age. Older roofs may need more frequent repairs than newer ones because they tend to be more easily damaged by environmental factors like wind or rain. Flat Roofers Barrow in Furness will discuss some telltale signs that indicate when it’s time for repair!
The first thing to look for is discoloration. A roofing contractor can tell you what kind of shingle they see and help you determine if it’s time to replace them or repair the damage.

If there are patches on your roof that don’t match the surrounding area, those likely need replacing as well! Other signs include rust stains from nails popping up through the surface , curling or blistering , and excessive granules (roof sand) in gutters .
