Curling shingles- If your shingles are starting to curl or bubble, they are have a chance to start breaking off in high winds, leaving your roof vulnerable.
Deteriorating shingles- If the bottom of your downspouts and see a lot of shingle granulels, this could mean the shingles are nearing the end of their life.
Missing shingles- Often times, after a heavy storm or windy day, homeowners will find shingles in their yard. This is a definite sign that the roof is in need of repair or replacement.
