How Often Does a Roof Need to Be Replaced?

Home RenovationYour roof does the important job of protecting your family and belongings from the elements while helping to keep your home warm, comfortable, and dry.

It’s a part of your home that you might take for granted—that is, until it starts to fail. When your roof starts to show signs that it’s no longer doing its job effectively, it’s time to contact a roofing company that can install a new one.

But, how often does a roof need to be replaced? The answer depends on a variety of factors.


Roofing Materials

Asphalt shingle roofs are by far the most popular option for New England homeowners because they offer an excellent combination of durability, longevity, attractiveness, and affordability. When subjected to normal wear and tear, a new roof that features basic 3-tab shingles can be expected to last 20 years or more. Architectural shingles, which are often thicker and of higher quality, can perform reliably for 30 years or more.

Weather Damage

Of course, the lifespan of your home’s roof will also depend on factors that can’t be planned for, like hailstorms and strong winds. These types of weather conditions can do damage that might not be visible to the untrained eye and can lead to faster roof deterioration. Often, the moisture leaking in can soak into the insulation in the attic so you may want to check there, too. You might also notice puddles in your attic or notice a thick, heavy musty smell. If your ceiling has brown or yellowish, circular stains, you probably have a leak. That’s also true if you have brown or yellowish streaks on your walls. This discoloration is caused by rainwater carrying dirt or other debris that leaks all the way through to the surface of your ceiling or walls.

EMERGENCY SIGN:  A sagging ceiling is an even more advanced sign of a leak. Please follow up with a roofing expert immediately. 

Roof Maintenance 

Seasonal roof maintenance is often an afterthought or done after a major storm. But in order to prolong the life of your existing roof, our roofing experts suggest a seasonal inspection of your roofing – especially in New England. Your roof experiences a wide range of extreme weather, but will usually start showing signs of wear and tear long before a major issue arises. With any type of maintenance, the earlier you catch a potential problem area, the cheaper and less damage the repair will be. 

Seasonal or yearly checkups will lengthen the life of your roofing materials, preventing leaks that lead to damage, costly repairs, and the necessity for a complete roof replacement. If it has been a significant amount of time since you’ve had your roof inspected, call our exterior experts at NEWPRO for a free, no-obligation inspection and quote! It couldn’t be easier!

The Layers Of An Advanced Protection® Shingle

The Layers Of A Timberline® Advanced Protection® Shingle

Fiberglass Mat: the “heart” of the shingle
Low-profile technology includes a proprietary orientation of glass fibers, for maximum strength and durability

Asphalt:  provides waterproofing performance
Advanced process control allows us to optimize the critical top (i.e., weathering) layer for long-term performance against severe weather

Filler: mixed with the asphalt to bind components
Contains premium limestone content optimized for maximum toughness and wind resistance and also filtering out unnecessary limestone.

Adhesive: seals the shingles on the roof
Helps every GAF shingle to comply with AC438*, the first shingle tests that use advanced science to predict long-term shingle performance for long-term durability, wind-driven rain performance, and long-term extreme temperature resistance.

*What is AC438?

AC438 is the first set of tests for shingles that uses advanced science to predict long-term shingle performance in three critical areas:

  • Long-term durability: How your shingles perform after long-term exposure to the sun (the #1 enemy of your shingles).
  • Wind-driven rain performance: How your shingles will stand up to heavy, driving rains.
  • Long-term extreme-temperature resistance: How your shingles withstand extreme temperatures

All GAF Shingles have passed the requirements of AC438. GAF was the first shingle manufacturer whose shingles passed these torturous tests. We think Mother Nature would be impressed!
