    How can I tell when my roof needs to be replaced?

    Roofers

    What are the tell-tale signs that a roof should be replaced? When would a replacement be needed vs. when it simply needs to be repaired?

    "Exterior warning signs include: Damaged tiles – if roof tiles are cracked, rotting, buckling, torn, missing, worn, curled, or loose, they will need replacing. Age – over time, weathering and the elements take their toll on your roof. If your roof is over twenty years old it will most likely need replacing"

    "If your structural timber roof i.e. joist, spars etc are damaged due to wet or dry rot and has weakened the structure it will need to be replaced. Timber that isn’t structural and can be replaced will be fine to do so without the main roof being touched."
