You may have started thinking about sprucing up your home for the approaching spring season. When the time comes for your annual spring cleaning, you may notice shingle granules in your gutters or on your lawn. The presence of shingle granules around your home is usually a sign that you need a roof replacement.
Here is why you might find asphalt shingle granules in your gutters, and what F-Wave synthetic roof shingles from Refined Exteriors can do to help.
What Causes Shingle Granules to Appear?
If you find shingle granules in your gutters, don’t panic. Depending on the circumstance, shingle granules are not always a cause for concern.
If your roof is relatively new or your home just endured a storm, it is common for your shingles to experience granular loss. Since shingles are composed of thousands of these tiny granules, it is not uncommon to shed a few.
However, if your roof is aging and you are noticing an excessive amount of granules in your gutters, on your lawn, or even in your driveway, you may need a roof replacement. When your roof ages, the shingles begin to erode and the granules fall off. This can be caused by harsh weather, a branch rubbing against them, or even mold and debris.
What Happens When My Shingles Lose Granules?
Your roof is more vulnerable to the elements once shingle granules are removed. The impact of a storm has the potential to create leaks inside your home, and gutters filled with granule debris can cause flooding that will deteriorate the foundation of your home over time.
Asphalt shingles are also more likely to bend, crack, or break due to sun exposure or impact once granular loss occurs. The granules on your asphalt shingles are essential in securing the integrity of your roofing.
Traditional Asphalt Shingles vs. F-Wave Synthetic Shingles
Once you decide to invest in a roof replacement, it is important to choose a product that will ensure the integrity of your roof for years to come. Although many homeowners tend to lean toward traditional asphalt shingles, granular loss will continue to resurface as an issue in the future.
