Even the most durable roofing system in the world will not be completely immune to damage. Barring any disasters and as long as you keep your roof in reasonably good condition, most roofing issues are easily fixed as long as you catch them early. However, there are some instances where a roof replacement will be more practical than having it repaired. Here are a few simple tips to help you decide whether or not to have your roof replaced rather than having it repaired.
1. Your Roof Is Nearing the End of Its Serviceable Life
As the old saying goes, nothing lasts forever. Unfortunately, this is true even for your roof because you will have to replace it eventually. This is why knowing when your roof was installed as well as what it’s made of is very important. For instance, a typical asphalt shingle roof will last anywhere between 15 to 25 years while a metal roofing system can be expected to last between 40 to 70 years.
2. When You Have Your Roofer on Speed Dial
If you find that you have been calling your roofing contractor more and more to have your roof fixed then it’s probably time to start considering getting a new one. A well-maintained roof shouldn’t have to be worked on more than a couple of times a year. If you are having to call your roofer more times than is normal, then this could definitely be a sign that it needs replacing.
3. If Your Roof Is Beginning To Sag
A droopy, lopsided roof is not only an eyesore, but it could also be dangerous for you and your family. If you notice your roof beginning to sag then you should definitely have it replaced as soon as possible. A sagging roof indicates that there is a problem with your roof’s structural integrity and, if left alone, could eventually lead to a collapse.
