Want to Know if you Need a Roof Replacement?
Updated: Oct 24, 2022
The team at Home Restorer P&G ensures you get the most life out of your roof. But before you go through the process of replacing your roof, you'll want to ensure that you actually need to replace it.
So, let's dig into signs to figure out when it's the right time for a new roof and why a contractor would sell you one when you don't need it.
Here are some things to consider:
The length of time you get out of your roof depends on age and type. For a dimensional asphalt shingle roof, you can expect it to last 30 years. But it's important that your roof has adequate ventilation and is installed correctly. Replacing your roof before it leaks or fails completely will help you avoid more costly repairs later.
Your roof should last at least as long as the manufacturer's warranty. But occasionally, roofs fail prematurely and require replacement long before they should be replaced. Roof failure is most often caused by improper installation or inadequate attic ventilation.
If your roof isn't installed with proper shingling techniques, you'll likely find shingles in your yard or entire sections sliding off your roof. In addition, if your attic isn't properly ventilated, the damage from the trapped heat and cold will shorten the life of your roof.
Be aware that when your roof isn't properly ventilated or adequately installed—and if the manufacturer's warranty on your roofing materials is voided—only your contractor's workmanship warranty will be available to fall back on in case of a prematurely failed roof.
The climate you live in and the kind of storms your property faces affect how much wear and tear your roof goes through. Heavy storm damage (tornado, wind, hail) clearly can lead to a roof replacement.
If you have metal roofing, hail damage will lead to replacing your metal panels. However, asphalt shingles need to damage the soft metals (downspouts, gutters, vents, or flashing) on your roof before replacing them. Whatever storm damage your roof has, it's important to know if your insurance covers it.
Even though you might consider replacing your roof, that doesn't automatically mean it needs to happen. Home Restorer P&G can help determine if you need a new roof.
