While a silver lining around a cloud is a good sign, when you see a “silver lining” around your shingles, beware. The shiny edge you see is a sign to replace your shingle roof.
- You may notice the corners look shiny. Or, possibly the edges appear silver when the sun hits them. Both scenarios are giving you notice that your home is no longer protected from rain and storms. Replace your shingle roof before leaks start.
- Another sign many homeowners miss is in their gutters. While you may look and see only leaves, look deeper. Do you see granules in your gutters? Do you see granules at the bottom of your downspout? This is a sign that the shingles are no longer maintaining their integrity against the elements.
Shingle roofs are affordable and durable. Whether you go for the highest quality and shapes of designer shingles or the affordability and beauty of more standard dimensional shingles, there are many choices. When shingles wear and lose their granular surface, the hot sun of Tampa Bay can more easily penetrate your roof coating.
