As the leading expert in roof maintenance and replacement in the local area, we receive a lot of roofing questions from homeowners. The number one question we get from homeowners is: “How do I know when it’s time to replace my roof?”
The short answer is that it depends. There are many factors that affect whether roof replacement or repair is the more cost-effective choice. To get a clear answer for your specific situation, we will need to perform a roof inspection. In the meantime, ask yourself these questions:
- Is My Roof Over 20 Years Old? With regular maintenance, you can expect a high-quality asphalt shingle roof to protect your home for over 25 years. However, once it passes the two decade mark, a roof usually becomes harder to maintain and can require more repairs if it gets damaged. If you have an old roof, scheduling a roof replacement rather than a repair is probably the more sensible option. Call us for an inspection to see if a roof replacement is more cost effective.
- Does My Roof Have Extensive Damage? If your roof is heavily damaged, then it might be a good idea to just replace it. While an experienced roofing company like us can handle any kind of roofing problem, a roof replacement is better than a roof repair in this case because a new roof will provide much more reliable weather protection. Extensive damage means that your roof might no longer function the way it’s supposed to, even when repaired. Call us for an inspection to determine if a new roof installation makes sense.
- Do I Want an Upgrade? Lastly, you need to ask yourself if you want a new look for your home. A new roof will be more beautiful and be more effective than your current roof because new roofing products incorporate the latest advances in roofing technology. Manufacturers always work hard to improve the durability and beauty of their products. A roof replacement makes sense if you want to improve your home’s curb appeal and function.
