Should You Replace Your Roof This Summer?

Posted in Roofing

Most homeowners will only replace the roof on their home once. A quality roof can last for decades but if you own your home for 30 years or buy a used home, there is a good chance you will need to replace the roof at some point. It is a large investment but if you choose the right option, it should be a once in a lifetime purchase. Here are some considerations on whether the time has come to replace your roof.

How Old is Your Roof?

When was your current roof installed? This is a major factor but not the only consideration. If your roof is still in great shape even after 20-30 years, there is no reason to replace it. It also matters what type of roof you have – some quality roofs can last for well over 30 years.

How Often Do You Need Repairs?

If you have had leaks or other problems with your roof that needed repair over the last few years, replacement should be considered. Constantly investing money in repairs can be pointless, especially when a roof is nearing the end of its lifespan.

Will Your Roof Make it Another Winter?

You do not want to have your roof fail you during the coldest or wettest months of the year. Summer is the time to replace your roof if you have any concerns that it will not last through another blast of storms and winter weather.

If you still are not sure if it is time to replace your roof, schedule an inspection with a reputable local roofing company. They can give you an honest opinion on whether it is time to replace your roof.
