Frequently Asked Roofing Questions Answered!

When it comes to your roof, there are no stupid questions. As a homeowner, you need to learn about your roof to know when it’s time for replacement, how to go about scheduling repairs, and how to make wise purchasing decisions. Here, the roofing experts at Able Roof have answered several frequently asked questions we receive from our customers. If you still have questions or concerns regarding your roof, feel free to contact us!

When Should I Replace My Roof?

Roof replacement is one of the largest investments you have to make as a homeowner. It’s only natural to want to be absolutely certain this is your best option before you commit to the purchase. In our years of service, we’ve learned how to easily identify roofing systems that would benefit more from replacement than repairs. If you notice any of these signs, it’s most likely time to replace:

  • Old age. The typical asphalt roof will last between 15 and 25 years. Other types of roofs may last shorter or longer periods of time. If you aren’t sure how old your roof is, ask a contractor. If you notice other homes in your neighborhood undergoing roof replacements, it could be a sign that yours is also due. Old roofs will start to deteriorate, exposing you to risks like leaks and sags.
  • Shingle problems. While you can replace the occasional shingle, widespread shingle issues point to the need for replacement. Look for curled, buckled, or cracked shingles. Large patches of missing shingles, bald shingles, or granules in your gutters are also signs that your roof needs an overhaul.
  • Major issues. If a roofing contractor recommends a number of significant repairs for your roof, it might be a better investment to replace the roof altogether. Put the money you would have spent in repairs toward your new roof and enjoy peace of mind in your home. The knowledgeable technicians at Able Roof can help you decide which option is best for you.

When in doubt, call a contractor. Schedule routine roof maintenance to catch small problems before they escalate into major ones that require replacement. Regular maintenance can also give you an idea of when you should replace your roof, helping you avoid expensive surprises.
