If you’re looking at an asphalt shingle roof and considering switching to synthetic thatch because of its aesthetics and easy maintenance, you’re in good company—many business owners across the globe have made the switch to a synthetic thatch roof and have enjoyed remarkable results.
But what if your aging asphalt shingle roof is failing? How can you tell before it’s too late?
How to Tell if Your Asphalt Shingle Roof is Failing
The biggest thing to watch for is your roof’s age. If it’s more than 20 years old, the chances of it failing in one or more spots increases exponentially. (That’s not necessarily the case with synthetic thatch, though, which is designed to last for decades.)
What to watch for:
- Shingles that are lifting
- Missing shingles
- Shingles with curled edges
- Shingles that have smooth, dark areas
If you can, go into the attic on a sunny day. Loook for any signs of water staining, soft spots, or pinhole spots of light. Each of these things is a big red flag that your asphalt roof is failing and may need to be replaced.
