Roof replacement is quite joint these days since the roofing materials have a 25-30-year lifespan. Eventually, some of them are already due for a replacement. The most common reasons a roof needs replacement are old age, damage, and if the homeowner wants to upgrade.
Lifespans of Various Roof Types
Asphalt Shingles have a longevity of 15-30 years old
Premium Asphalt Shingles, or "architectural shingles," can last 25-30 years of age.
Wood Shingles can withstand 30 years but require constant maintenance to last this long.
Clay Tiles have a 50-year lifespan, provided the homeowner regularly runs maintenance.
Cement Tile can even surpass a 60-year lifespan
Metal Roofs are famous for having a lifespan of 70 years
Slate Roof can almost last a lifetime since they can last up to 100 years
Regardless of the roofing material, it's essential to understand that roofs naturally deteriorate over time. As a roof age, its ability to safeguard your home, family, and possessions decreases. Regular maintenance and monitoring of your roof's condition are crucial to ensuring its effectiveness and identifying the right time for potential replacement.
Replacing a Damaged Roof
It is advisable first to seek the advice of a professional roofer to assess whether you can repair your roof before deciding to go for a replacement, as roof replacement typically costs more and involves a longer process than repairs. In some instances, replacement becomes inevitable. If your roof is severely damaged and threatens your home's structural stability or manifests multiple areas of concern, like persistent leaks that jeopardize your home's integrity, opting for replacement may be the best action. Over time, every roof will reach a stage where replacing it becomes cost-effective rather than continually patching it up.
