Is It Time to Replace Your Roof?

Many roofing problems can be resolved through simple repairs. However, there comes a time when investing in a new roof becomes a more practical choice than paying for ongoing repairs. Here are some of the situations where a roof replacement makes sense.

Your Roof Is Past Its Prime

One of the first things you need to consider when choosing between a repair or replacement is the roof’s age. An asphalt shingle roof, for instance, has an average lifespan of 20 to 30 years with regular maintenance. Eventually, it will fail and lose its weather resistance. In addition to buckling, cracking and curling, old shingles also lose their protective granules over time, causing them to appear “bald.” These are indications that the roof is nearing the end of its service life and that a replacement is due.

Your Roof Is Leaking Too Much

Bringing out multiple buckets to catch water dripping from the ceiling is frustrating, to say the least. If you’re dealing with this, it means you probably need to replace your roof. Repairs are unlikely to solve serious roof damage that causes persistent leaks. If you see water stains and streaks along your walls and ceiling or evidence of mold and rot in your attic, it is time to get in touch with your local roofing company to assess the overall condition of your roof.

Your Roof Suffered Significant Storm Damage

Long-term exposure to the elements can expedite the wear and tear of your roofing system, but a severe storm is a different thing entirely. Be it a large tree falling on top of your home or wind-blown debris colliding with your roof, a major weather event can cause fatal damage to any roof. Replacing it might be the most practical option depending on the extent and severity of the damage.
