Majority of houses up to this date are built with asphalt shingles. The asphalt tiles have a special coating (tiny granules) for UV protection. Bald tiles, holes in the tiles, cracks, and missing tiles all indicate roof damage. Moreover, large amount of tile granules seen in your gutters spells roof deterioration. If these signs are present, it’s definitely time for a thorough roof inspection.
On the other hand, cedar roof tiles can split especially during dry season. In regions where rainfall is frequent, moss can start growing on the tiles. Overall, natural roofing materials deteriorate at a more rapid rate as compared to the synthetic ones.
With all the facts presented, roof inspection should be done on a regular basis, at least once or twice a year. Make sure not only to inspect the exterior but the inside as well. Water stains for example on the inside certainly indicates a leak or probably an insulation that has been stripped away. If your roof sustained an extensive damage, re-roofing might be the best option for you.
