Eyeing that roof on the New Jersey house you’re considering buying and wondering if it needs replacing? Or simply trying to figure out if your own home’s roof should be retired? Team Nest Builder recommends you read through these 5 tell-tale signs that it’s time for a roof remodel before it’s too late in the year to make that much-needed update!

Check these 5 roof re-do ready signs now, before the weather turns cold!


Bubbling:  Only Good for Champagne

Shingles should lie flat. Any bubbling or curling edges could mean leaks are on their way soon.

Patchwork

If you're missing shingles in patches, they could be replaced one-by-one. Unfortunately, chances are that due to weathering on the existing shingles, colors won't match and your roof will soon resemble Grandma's heirloom quilt!

Take a Peek

Sunlight peeking in? Or water spots dotting your attic floor? Even if you don’t see holes, these symptoms indicate you’re almost surely in need of a new roof.

Cracking Up

Cracks indicate aging, and should prove extra-alarming if they’re all over your roof.

Memory Loss

A typical roof lasts 20-30 years. If you or the current homeowner can’t remember the last time the roof underwent renovation, it’s time to procure a consultation with a roofing pro.


Jingle Hell
