3 Signs You Need New Roofing and Important Things to Consider Before Getting a Roof Replacement

  • Written by Alison Lurie

Your roof is undeniably the most important feature of your house. A great roof not only raises your property’s value but it serves as your house’s fundamental support and keeps you safe from all types of weather. Having regular roof checkups will prolong your roof’s lifespan, but there will come a time when your roof needs to be replaced.

For typical homeowners, it may be challenging to know whether or not your roof needs replacement. However, there are ways to know if your roof has issues. Below are some signs you need a roof replacement:

Your roof is as old as time

Not all roofs are made equal. You must invest in a durable roof because the lifespan of your roof greatly depends on the quality of materials used for it. The average lifespan of roofs ranges from 15-20 years, but some can last for twice as long. However, even if your roof can last a decade or two more than its average lifespan, it does not mean it will be as sturdy. Factors such as improper maintenance, poor insulation, and the frequency of your roof’s exposure to harsh weather conditions all affect your roof’s overall durability.

Your roof has spoiled or missing shingles.

In most cases, a vulnerable roof might give in to strong storms and might lose shingles. Damaged shingles mean you should get your roof checked as soon as possible. A professional can properly determine whether or not your roof needs a replacement.

Your roof has extensive staining.

Stains in the roof often indicate moss and algae contamination. Moss and algae would eventually corrupt shingles leading to more complications. If your roof has extensive staining, it would be best to have it checked by an expert as they know the exact things to do.

Moreover, here are some important things to consider before getting a roof replacement:

1. Invest in high-quality roofing materials

As mentioned earlier, the lifespan of your roof highly depends on the roofing materials. The type of roof and the quality it offers is important as it also determines the price of your roof. For instance, asphalt roofs are one of the most cost-effective roofing on the market. Still, concrete or metal roofings are intended to last longer and are usually the greatest option if you expect your roof to be durable for an extended period.

Weigh in the pros and cons of each roofing type to determine what suits your preferences. If you are still doubtful about what kind of roofing to get, do not hesitate to contact an expert. In that way, you can get professional advice and pick the right type of roof for your house.

2. Keep in mind that the roofing process is noisy.

Remember that the removal of old shingles and installing new ones will be a long and noisy process. If you have children and pets, it might be best to let them temporarily stay someplace else while you get your roof done. It would also be considerate of you to inform your neighbours about your noisy roofing project beforehand.

Considering all of these, a typical homeowner cannot properly inspect and determine whether their roof needs a replacement. To ensure safety, it is best to have an expert regularly check and maintain the condition of your roof. However, when the inevitable time your roof needs replacement comes, contacting a professional to handle the whole process of replacing your roof would save you the stress of further complications and unwanted accidents caused by broken roofs.
