When It’s Time to Replace or Repair Your Roof

It’s never a good idea to let your roof go too long without maintenance, repair, or even a replacement. But without getting a professional roofing inspector to check your roof over, how do you know when it’s time? Here are our tips for figuring it out.

Old roof with aging shingles

It’s Been a While

First and foremost, think of the last time your roof was looked at or worked on by a professional roofing contractor. If it’s been many years (between 15 and 30), it’s likely time for your asphalt roof to be replaced. Depending on the style of shingles, your roof could last longer, but that depends on other factors, as well.

You’ve Noticed Leaks

Of course, if you’ve noticed any kind of leaking or creaking in the top floor of your home, you’ll likely want to get that fixed. If there are leaks that are seeping into your home, it’s likely that the leak is bigger than you think, so it’s best to call in a licensed and insured roofing professional to check it out and ensure the problem is resolved properly!

Damaged roof with broken shingles

Missing Shingles

Sometimes that’s just what it sounds like; a shingle that flew off or deteriorated over the years. However, it can be a sign of a much deeper issue, and could lead to a whole roof replacement instead of just a repair. It’s always best to keep an eye out for any changes in your shingles and call a professional so your home stays safe and protected!
