Do You Need a Roof Replacement?

July 2, 2021

A brand new roof is a large investment and one that is beneficial to prepare for. Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t feel adequately prepared when it’s time to replace their roof. Even if you don’t need a new roof right now, it’s a great time to think about when it will be the right time. So when exactly do you need a roof replacement? Here are some questions to consider so you are ready for a roof replacement — when the time is right.

What Type of Roof Do You Have?

The first step to figuring out when to replace your roof is by knowing what type of roof you currently have. Do you have a three-tab asphalt roof, architectural shingles, or a metal roof? Different types of roofs have different lifespans and rules for maintenance. 

How Old is Your Roof?

Once you know what type of roof you have, it’s time to figure out when it was installed and its repair history. If you are not the original owner, it might be a good idea to ask the previous owners of your home about the roof’s installation. Even a ball-park estimate is good enough. Another option is to ask your realtor to see if they can look up the house records. 

Knowing the age of your roof is helpful because then you can gauge where your roof is in its service life. The average service life of an asphalt roof is between 15-30 years, whereas metal can last up to 70 years. If your roof is nearing the end of its service life, it’s time to start considering and saving for a new roof.

Are You Having Roof Problems?

If your roof is constantly needing repairs, a roof replacement might be more budget-friendly in the long term. Common signs of wear and tear in a roof include curling or missing shingles, clogged storm gutters, damaged flashing, or moisture in your walls. While the occasional leak can be repaired, it’s not normal to experience this often unless there is something wrong with your roof.
