In time, every roof needs to be replaced, usually due to the long term effects of weathering. If a residential roof is more than 20 years old, it is a prime candidate for re-roofing. Ways to ensure your roof needs replacing include:

Look for things on the inside such as places where the roof deck is sagging, signs of water damage or leaking, dark spots and trails, and outside light showing through the roof.

On the exterior on the roof, pay attention to such things as damaged flashing, curling, blistering, buckling, and rotting and algae growth.

Check for signs of moisture, rot, or mould.

Check for signs of moisture, rot, or mould.

Examine the drainage, and make sure gutters and downspouts are securely attached. Also, ensure all drains are open and allow water to exit, and all gutters and downspouts are free of debris.

Check that all bath, kitchen, and dryer vents go entirely outside of your home, not just into the attic.

A leaking roof is a bad thing. However, it doesn’t necessarily warrant a complete roof replacement. How much repair and work needs to be done on your roof depends on the level of damage caused by leaking. Talking to a professional is the best way to know whether only minor repair OR a full roof replacement is necessary.

There are many problems that can lead to roof leaking, which is why it’s important to inspect your roof periodically and check for common warning signs. You can perform this inspection yourself, but it is a good idea to hire a professional at least once a year to check for any serious roof problems.

While some small jobs can be tackled by DIY homeowners, major work or a roof replacement is a complex process that requires training and should be left to the professionals. Professional roofing contractors goes to through training and certification by the manufacturer of the materials in order to obtain extended manufacturer warranty. The manufacturer won’t offer (or void) the warranty if the roof is repaired by a person he is not trained by the manufacturer.

While most roofs have a warranty, this doesn’t mean that your roof will necessarily go this long without needing to be replaced. Some will wear out faster due to severe weather and environmental conditions, while others could last longer. Most roofs, however, are designed to last between 15 and 25 years.
