When to Replace Your Roof: Look For the Signs
So, your roof is in less than the best condition. Is it time to get it repaired? Or should you go a step further and get it replaced? Knowing the best course of action will save you a ton of time and frustration. In this article, we help you make the right choice by telling you the signs that your Dallas / Fort Worth home needs a roof replacement, not a repair.
Your Shingles Are in Generally Bad Condition
The best thing about a shingle roof is that it's generally pretty easy to see when it needs a little upkeep. Just take a look at it, and if some of its shingles are buckled, discolored, missing, or otherwise in bad shape, you know it's time to get a repair.
On the other hand, if you notice that MANY of your shingles are in this kind of condition, then you may need more than a repair. After all, an overall problem with your shingles indicates that your roof is past the point of repair and should be replaced at some point in the near future.
Your Roof Is near the End of Its Expected Lifespan
Nothing lasts forever, unfortunately, and that goes for your roof as well as anything else. Like all other things, your roof even has an expected lifespan. What is the lifespan of your roof? Well, that depends on the kind of roof you have. Some last around 20 years. Others last upwards of 50 years or more.
No matter what kind of roof you have, two things are certain: You're going to want to know how long your roof is expected to last, and you're going to want to gear up for a repair when it reaches that age limit. Contact your roofer if you're struggling to figure out how much longer your roof should have.
You Need More and More Repairs
Through the course of your roof's lifespan, you'll have to shell out more than a few bucks on repairs. That's just the nature of something that remains exposed to Nature at all times of the day and night, so it's nothing to worry about.
What IS something to worry about, though, is when you have to get these repairs with greater and greater frequency. If you notice that repairs are becoming a popular trend in your life, then you'll be better off redirecting your roofing repair money toward a roof replacement.
