When to Schedule a Roof Replacement with Your Roofer

When to Schedule a Roof Replacement with Your Roofer

As a homeowner in New Jersey, you want to prolong the life of your roof as long as possible, but a roof replacement is bound to be somewhere in your future. Roofing materials are designed to withstand extreme weather and normal wear and tear for as long as possible, but your roofer can repair your roof only so many times before a complete roof replacement becomes the better option. A roof inspection from an experienced roofer at least once a year is recommended, but there are signs of damage that you can look out for on your own.

Roof Damage That May Necessitate a Roof Replacement

  • Leaks and water damage
  • Holes
  • Loose, missing, or broken shingles
  • Sagging
  • Moisture, mold, or rot

How Often Should You Replace Your Roof?

The longevity of your roof depends on its material, the weather conditions, and the expertise of the roofer who installed the roof. Asphalt shingles are expected to last 15 to 30 years, wood shingles should last 20 to 25 years, and composition shingles can last 12 to 20 years. Rubber roofs have a longer life span that ranges from 30 to 50 years, and metal roofs can remain in good condition for up to 75 years.

After a roofing contractor suggests a roof replacement, you must choose from various roofing materials to plan your new roof. There are advantages and disadvantages to each roof type, so the material you choose mostly depends on your preferences, budget, and location. Proper workmanship is one of the most important contributors to a roof's longevity, so choose a reputable roofer like Penn Roofing when replacing the roof on your New Jersey home.
