While roofing materials are designed to last a long time, all will eventually need to be replaced. Our team at Aspire Roofing and Gutters has over 15 years of experience in the roofing industry, giving us the knowledge we need to know when it’s time to replace a roof. In this article, we’ll go over a few signs to look for to determine if it’s time to schedule roof replacement services.

How to Tell When It’s Time for a Roof Replacement

  • Check the Age – The first way to tell if it’s time for a roof replacement is to check the age of your current roof. When moving into a new building, make sure to ask the previous owners how old the roof is, or look up this information in the building inspection report. If your roof is approaching the upper limits of its lifespan, it might be time to prepare for a replacement.
  • Check for Wear – If you are concerned your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, we encourage you to perform a basic visual inspection. Walk around the building and check the roof for signs of wear or damage. For example, if the shingles are balding or curled, or if the flashing is in bad shape, it’s a good idea to call our team. In some cases, it’s possible to repair this kind of damage, but in others, you will need to replace the roof altogether.
  • Get an Inspection – Lastly, you can schedule a professional roof inspection to determine if you need a roof replacement or not. Our roofers will examine every part of your roof to assess their condition, and we’ll use our findings to give you a clear answer about what to do. We can tell you exactly when you will need to get your roof replaced, either now or in the future.
