How Often Do You Replace Your Roof?
A well-made roof should provide decades of worry-free protection for your home. And while it may seem like your roof is still doing its job, how do you know when it’s nearing the end of its lifespan? Fortunately, if you have regular roof inspections, it will be relatively easy to tell when your roof needs to be replaced.
What Is the Lifespan of a Roof?
For an asphalt shingle roof that has been installed properly, you can expect up to 30 years of reliable protection for your home. When it’s reaching the end of the line, some of the signs to look for include:
- Missing shingles
- Water stains on the ceiling
- Shingles that are loose, damaged, or have lost their granules
- Light shining into the attic
- Areas of the roof that are sagging
- Mold growth or wood rot
- Holes or dark spots
While these issues are usually the result of many years of regular wear and tear, they can also appear if your roof has recently been impacted by severe weather. Take a listen to this recent NEWPRO homeowner and how a new roof was the perfect solution for their New England home:
