Roof replacements are a valuable way to install a new roof and get the upgrade your home needs from the previous roof. There are many reasons to consider replacing your roof, but it's recommended to have a professional inspection first before taking the plunge. You might find that your roof simply requires some patchwork repairs and you can easily get another 5-10 years of use out of it. When this is not the case, your roofing contractor will be able to detect deterioration of the shingles almost immediately. Replacing your roof doesn't have to be a daunting task, but one that can bring you relief since you'll have a stunning new roof!
When to Replace Your Roof
There is no definitive time when you are required to replace your roof. However, many clients will replace the roof whenever the shingles begin to give, or a professional inspection recommends otherwise. A standard roof can see a lifespan of anywhere from 20 – 50 years, depending on the building material that you've sourced for your roof. If your roof begins to leak, mold, loosen, or otherwise deteriorate – such as falling shingles or shingle debris on your gutters or in the chimney - we'll most definitely recommend a roof replacement.
In conjunction with the rest of our roof services, we also provide professional roof inspections. These inspections are designed to help you gain a better understanding of the condition of your roof and when it should be replaced or repaired. Many times, clients can often not see damage in their roof until it's too late. To avoid this, we recommend having your roof inspected on an annual basis so that you can be sure there are no hidden leaks seeping through your attic, and you're not noticing a leak until it's made its way to your drywall.
Along with providing roof inspections, we are also here to assist with any roof upgrades and incorporate your ideas into your new and refurbished roof. Roof upgrades can consist of anything from re-designing the master profile of your roof, integrating new building materials, installing skylights, or even installing solar panels. Your roof is important to us, and we know how important it is to you. For this reason, we dedicate extra attention to detail when it comes to roof upgrades.
As with all of our professional services, you can trust that we will only provide efficient and reliable solutions for your roof. We will never recommend a roof replacement before your roof is actually ready to be replaced, and, sometimes, a thorough repair is all that is needed to maintain the integrity of a roof. We are here to sustain a durable roof for your home, and if that means opting for a repair over a replacement, then that is what we will recommend. However, we also pay close attention to when a roof will soon be ready for a replacement and will recommend that option if we see it as the most valuable solution.
