Shown below are common symptoms that indicate it may be time for a new roof.

Generally speaking, new shingled roofs should last upwards of 20+ years. However, many factors, such as proper installation, climate, and ventilation, impact the life of your roof.

Even if your roof shows signs of the symptoms mentioned above, you may not need a total roof replacement. The trusted professionals at Allegiance Roofing can give your roof a thorough inspection and let you know if you are in need of a new roof, or just a few repairs.
