- Your Shingles are Dark, Wet, and Dirty

This dark coloration occurs when there are water and moisture locked under the shingle. Although the shingles can and do look like this when water touches them, it’s important to pay attention to when they look like this after a week of sunshine.
- Your Shingles are Cracked
This is another physical sign that you can keep an eye out for. If the shingles are cracked then chances are they are slowly serving their purposeless and less. Even worse, if the shingles are missing and there are gaps, you are due for a repair.
