Sometimes, this answer is obvious: a hole in your roof, missing shingles, leaks, or animals living in your attic. Other times, the signs you need a new roof are more than 12-15 years old, it may be time to get a replacement and get ahead of any problems that result from a damaged roof.
The longevity of your roof will depend on its materials, its installation, and its ventilation, so it’s hard to give a straight answer. Typically, a solid, correctly installed roof will last between 12-15 years. Depending on the quality and type of shingles you can choose and the base underlayment of your roof, that number can go up to 30 or more.
Your home insurance doesn’t typically cover wear and tear roof damage. You can file a claim with your insurance company if the damage was directly related to severe weather-related events like hail storms, tornadoes, or hurricanes.
We recommend that you add a warranty to your roof. Regular maintenance and repairs covered under the warranty can help extend the life of your roof, ensuring that it lasts as long as possible.
Every roof is different, so every costs a different amount. When considering the price of your new roof, roofing contractors take a few factors into consideration: size, old roof removal, style, shape, materials, and other features like chimneys, skylights, and vents that they need to work around. A roof replacement is a big investment, and giving a quote without examining your unique situation would not be in our customer’s best interest. However, once the price of your new roof is calculated, there are plenty of ways to finance your roof, making paying for your roof replacement easy and affordable.
It is crucial to find a trustworthy and experienced contractor to ensure your new roof is installed correctly. Check their credentials, references, and reviews to make sure you’re making the right choice. Make sure you also read the fine print in your contract and estimate to make sure you are getting the right roofing system your property needs.
