Roofing systems are designed to last a long time, but they won’t last forever. If you’re wondering if it’s time to talk to a contractor, below are just a few of the signs that it’s time to make that call.
Everyone on the block is doing it
This may seem like a strange way to gauge whether it’s time to replace your roof, but it’s not as weird as you might think. Why? Because most homes in a given housing development were built at the same time. Suffice to say, if half of your neighbors are having their roofs replaced, it may be time to replace yours as well. If you have questions about the integrity of your roofing system it never hurts to call a contractor to schedule a free inspection. If they determine it’s time to replace your roof, they’ll let you know. On the other hand, if they feel you can get a few more years out of the roofing system that you currently have, they’ll advise you of that, as well.
Your roof is older than your adult child that just finished graduate school
If your roof is 25+ years old, it may be time to replace it. The exact lifespan of a roof depends on several factors, such as the materials it’s made of (i.e., whether you have a tile or asphalt shingle roofing system), whether it’s been maintained, and the quality of the workmanship of the company that installed it. As we noted above, the best way to learn if your roof is still in good shape is to contact a professional roofing contractor.
Recent storms did a number on it
Southwest Floridians are well-familiar with tropical storms, hurricanes and gale-force winds. If your home was hammered during a recent weather event, you may need to repair (or replace) your roof.
