Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Roof

Don’t wait for major leaks or water damage to make repairs.

Replacing your roof can cost an average $19,000, according to a 2014 report from Remodeling magazine. Help avoid a big-ticket repair and prevent serious problems (think roof collapse) with regular maintenance.

How often? Many roofing companies advise inspecting your roof at least once or twice each year and after major weather events. Look for these red flags:

Should I repair or replace my roof?
You should consider making most minor repairs to help lengthen the roof’s life. However, it is recommended to first contact a roof professional to evaluate if a full replacement is warranted.

Also consider the age of your roof: Most roofs come with 25 or 30+ year limited warranties. Depending on your region, your roof could last significantly longer or shorter than the manufacturer’s warranty. If your roof exceeds its expected life, it may be time to replace it.
