Roof replacement is very common – in fact, you’ve probably seen roofers from Volterra on your neighbors’ roofs or around town. That’s because most roofing materials are designed to last between 20 and 30 years, and although some roofs last longer than others do, eventually, they all need to be replaced. Some of the most common reasons people get new roofing systems installed include:
How long a roof lasts under normal circumstances involves several factors, including the types of materials used and the quality of your roof contractors workmanship. Some materials are stronger than others are, and they can withstand more severe weather conditions without degrading. Here’s a quick look at how long the most common roofing materials last:
Each type of roofing will have its own warranties. For example, although slate tiles are known to last more than a hundred years, they typically only come with 50-year warranties.
With any type of roofing materials, the bottom line is that your roof degrades over time. The more your roof degrades, the less it is able to protect your home, your family and your belongings.
It’s always best to find out whether you can repair your roof before you decide to replace it. Roof replacement generally costs more and takes longer than repairs do. In many cases, replacement is the only way to go. If your roof is to damaged and is risking your home’s structural integrity, or if there are multiple spots of damage (such as leaks) in the roof that will soon compromise your home’s integrity, it may be best to replace it.
All roofs eventually reach a point where it’s more cost-effective to have them replaced than it would be to keep repairing them.
Roof damage isn’t always easy to spot – especially from the ground or inside the attic. However, you can do a visual inspection and look for:
Some signs are obvious – but others may take a trained eye. For that reason, we always recommend that homeowners take advantage of our free roof inspection. We’ll send a trained inspector to your home at a time that works for you.
Your inspector will look at every inch of your roof (including the inside from your attic) to check for signs of damage. Having a professional roof inspection is, by far, the best way to determine whether you need to replace your roof.
Many people opt for roof replacement when they’re remodeling or otherwise improving a home.
Some homeowners choose to replace it before listing it for sale (or when prospective buyers ask for a replacement), and still others do so when they know their roofing materials are aging and it’s only a matter of time before the roof begins to fail
When you have your roof inspected at least once a year (more if your home has been through a potentially damaging storm), and when you perform routine maintenance on it and keep it clean, you may be able to avoid a complete roof replacement for longer than you expect to.
However, the key to putting off a complete roof replacement is taking good care of it. Each time you have a professional inspect your roof, he or she will provide you with a detailed report so you can make the right choices.
