Reasons You May Need a New Roof
Do you own a home that you’re renting out? Are you considering putting your house up for sale? Is your existing roof more than 20 years old? Titan Roofing recommends one of our free roof inspections to check for any damage. This is the first step in determining if you need a new roof, or if repairs will do the trick. Here are some signs to help you decide if a new roof is in order:
- Missing shingles
- Torn or broken shingles
- Curled or cupped shingles
- Thick moss or mold covering large areas
- Bald shingles (significant loss of granule coating)
- Numerous leaks
- Soft and rotten sheathing
Replacing your roof at the right time is essential. If you wait for too long, issues can get worse, making the cost of replacement increase considerably. Fortunately, a free Titan Roofing inspection will tell us exactly what’s necessary to get your roof in the best shape at the most affordable price. If you simply need repairs or maintenance, that’s what we’ll tell you. In other words, we’ll never try to sell you a roof replacement if you really don’t need it. We are a local, family-owned business, and we value our great reputation in the Greater San Antonio area and surrounding communities.

Not All Reasons for a Roof Replacement Are Age-Related
These are common symptoms of an aging roof. However, there are other reasons for replacing your roof that have nothing to do with normal wear and tear over time.
Storm damage to your roof can manifest in numerous ways. These include:
- Bare patches
- Holes or cracks
- Damaged vents
- Shattered skylights
- Cracked sheathing
- And more
Damage to the “bones”, or basic structure, of your roof should never be underestimated. Therefore, it’s important to schedule a free roof inspection after a Texas-size storm to prevent expensive repairs down the line.
Although a properly maintained asphalt shingle roof will last between 15 and 25 years, certain things like mold expansion, extreme temperatures, and storm damage can shorten its lifespan significantly. Signs of excessive wear and tear on a fairly new roof are much the same as that of a roof that’s reaching the end of its life. To avoid more serious problems in the long run, it’s important to have periodic inspections throughout your roof’s life.
Sometimes, homeowners want to improve curb appeal to sell their home, even if their roof isn’t near the end of its lifespan. Unsurprisingly, a new roof upgrade can drastically increase your home’s resale value. Moreover, it can revive the look of an older home and bring in more potential buyers who will be happy to know the roof won’t need replacement for quite some time.
Maybe you need a new addition to accommodate your growing family or aging in-laws. Or maybe you would like some skylights to brighten certain spaces. Whatever the size or type of remodeling project, it’s often necessary to change your roofline or install a new roof. In addition, old roofs with spots of re-roofing can look quite awkward, decreasing curb appeal and home value.
