How do I know when it’s time to repair or replace my roof?

There are many indications that it’s time to have a roofing contractor give you an onsite evaluation. If you’ve noticed any of these warning signs, you may be due for a replacement roof:

  • Curled or cupped shingles
  • Cracked shingles or defined bald spots on shingles
  • The roof is over 20 years old
  • Homes around you are getting new roofing. If the other houses in your neighborhood were built at same time, or by the same contractors, repairs on those homes could be a signal that it’s time to consider working on your own roof, too.
  • Dark streaks caused by airborne algae
  • The roof simply looks old and worn. There are many factors that accelerate the aging cycle of your roof: improper ventilation from the inside can lead to quicker degeneration of your shingles’ functionality and appearance.

What roofing materials are best for my home?

Before taking on a roof renovation, you’ll want a good idea of the material you want to use for your new roof! Here are some of the most popular options homeowners choose for their roofing materials:

Asphalt Shingle Roofing: This is the most common residential roofing material used in the U.S. They are popular because they’re economical and easy to install. Older asphalt shingles have a typical lifespan of 15-20 years, while premium asphalt shingles that are available today are engineered to last with very comprehensive warranties.

Clay and Concrete Tile Roofing: Clay and concrete tiles add texture and elegance to your roof. They’re extremely durable and energy efficient. However, they can expensive and require additional framing.

Metal Roofing: These roofing materials are durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions. You can purchase metal roofing in panels or individual shingles.

Slate Roofing: Slate offers beauty and elegance for your roof. You can get slate shingles in many colors, and while it can be expensive, it is very durable, fire-resistant, and recyclable.

Wood Shingle Roofing: This is a popular look for many homeowners, because even when they start to get older and weathered, they still look classy. Be sure to check your local fire codes before purchasing this material.
