These are signs that the shingles are nearing the end of their useful life. If you notice a lot of curled shingles, you should think about having your roof redone.

If shingles allow moisture to develop, they are not fulfilling their role. Remember that the moisture may not be just beneath the troublesome shingle. It can even run down in the roof deck causing Mold and other serious problems.

These particles frequently end up in your gutters. The granules resemble coarse black sand and these mean that your shingles need to be replaced

Chimneys, vents, pipes, and other things that pierce your roof are common areas for degradation to begin. Minor repairs are mostly limited to these specific locations only if done in time.

Moisture or increased humidity might build up near the roofline if your attic is improperly ventilated, causing paint to peel or blister. This could also be a sign that your gutter system is failing.

Many different factors might create water stains or discoloration on walls or ceilings. However, your roof's underlayment may be admitting moisture into your home, resulting in the stains. If not cured in time, this issue can lead to a total roof replacement.

If rain is coming into your attic, it could be as simple as installing some flashing. However, if the cause is a porous underlayment, you will most likely need to replace the roof.

If you're up in the attic during the day and notice streams of light flowing in, keep in mind that water might enter through the same gaps. Check the shingles to see if they need to be replaced.
