When Should I Replace My Roof?

May 5, 2020 | Roof Information

When should I replace my roof? It’s a question we get a lot, and there are a lot of things to consider when answering the question. Many roofs can live their entire life before needing a replacement, but sometimes we don’t really know exactly how long our roof has been up, or if there’s been any damage to it. So we wanted to give you a list of signs to look for that indicate you may need a new roof.

Remember, even with this guide, always seek a trusted roofing professional to help you make the best decision for you and your home.

Watch the Neighbors

This may seem a little strange, but homes in the same neighborhood tend to have been built around the same time and will have experienced the same conditions. If you have multiple neighbors getting new roofs, it’s a strong indicator you may need to do so as well.

Natural Life Span

For many homeowners, the roof may well last through its natural life cycle, but that can vary depending on the type of materials used and the region in which you live. If you have questions about the life span of your roof, don’t hesitate to contact a trusted professional for advice.

Cracks, Curls, and Bald Spots

All of these signs point to some amount of roof damage. The thing about damage like this is that it won’t get better without proper maintenance and it may be worse than it looks from the yard. This is another case of if you see it then you need to schedule a roof inspection to find out more before it becomes worse.

When in Doubt…

If you see something with your roof you’re not sure about, or you have other questions, always ask. Your roof is a fundamental part of your home’s structure. Don’t take chances on it.
