–Curling and buckling shingles are a sign that it’s time for a new roof. Shingles that are curling and losing granules means the roof is past its life expectancy or that the roofing material is defective.Worn out curling shingles on a house.

–Cracked or missing shingles is another sign that the roof is failing.

– Shingle granules in the gutters are also a sign of a failing roof.  Roofs tend to lose more granules toward the end of their life cycle. Also, a large pile of granules at the base of the gutter downspout is another sign of a worn shingled roof.

–Dark streaks on the roof caused by airborne algae that is sticking to the shingles. This may not necessarily harm the roof shingles, but it can make an otherwise beautiful home look tacky.
–The same goes for moss that can grow on roof surfaces, particularly in moderate moist climates where the roof doesn’t get much sunlight. In addition, moss can hold moisture against the shingles and in freezing weather cause damage to the granules. Moss can be brushed or scraped off the roof but it will grow back.

–Roof Valleys where shingles are falling apart or missing is a definite sign that the roof is failing. Snow and rain flow through valleys and into gutters. If the valley is compromised the roof could be susceptible to leaks.
