Should I Replace My Roof?

If you own a home, maintaining and preserving your property is a top concern. Your home’s roof is critical to your family’s safety, the structural integrity of the building itself, and maintaining it is not optional. If you’re here on our blog, you’re probably wondering: Should I replace my roof?

Can I Just Repair the Roof?

Every homeowner wants to save where they can, and replacing a roof too early can be a waste of money. But sometimes, roof issues are beyond simple repairs and the roof needs to be replaced. Doing this in a timely manner ultimately saves money because you’re not spending on repeat repairs. Here are some signs your home’s roof needs a full replacement:

Repeated Repairs

Do you have buckets around your house to collect water dripping from ceilings? Are the leaks happening repeatedly in the same spot, or are they springing up all over the place? If the answer is “they’re springing up all over the place”, your shingles are probably at the end of their life.

Missing Shingles

Is the roof missing shingles in several places? Unless you’ve endured a major weather event, this should not be happening with a roof that’s in good condition. Missing shingles in several places is a sign the roof is at the end of its life and needs a complete replacement. Failing to this in a timely manner causes your roof’s base to be exposed to moisture unnecessarily, which invites mold and pests. The last thing you need is a rodent problem in addition to a roof problem! 

Sagging Roof

When you pull into your driveway, have you noticed that the roof looks a little wobbly? It should look strong and sharp — if there’s any sagging at all, your roof ridge might be compromised. Sometimes, this can be caused by other factors with the structure but is often a roof problem that indicates it’s time for a replacement. 

Moss Growing on the Roof

Have you noticed any green stuff on your roof? Even if you live in a moist climate where this is common, it doesn’t mean it’s good! If you’ve got algae or moss taking up residence, your roof system is actively being weakened and will age faster. If you’ve let the moss and algae growth go on for too long, your roof probably needs to be replaced. 

The Roof is Just Plain Old

Unless you purchased a new roof within the last 15 years, your roof is probably reaching the end of its life. Depending on the type of roofing system you have installed on your home, its life varies. Some brands offer longer warranties than others, and the roof type affects the lifespan as well. If you have asphalt shingles and the roof is 15 years old or older, it’s at least time to have it professionally inspected. Replacing it preemptively is smart, as old roofs can suddenly fail without much warning.
