A roof replacement is no small project—quite the contrary, in fact. A new roof is a major investment that affects the weather protection, curb appeal, and even thermal performance of your home, but exactly how often does your roof need to be replaced? If you’ve asked yourself this very question, the roof replacement experts at Dreamstyle Remodeling are here to help.
In short, how often you need to replace your roof will depend on one major thing: what your roof is made of. Different types of roofing have different lifespans, with asphalt shingle roofs—the most common type of residential roof in North America—coming in at about 15-20 years and TPO flat roofs falling just behind at about 10-20 years.
The Signs It’s Time for a Roof Replacement
If your roof is getting up there in age, there are some signs to look out for to know if you need to replace it or if you can still get a few years of good performance out of it. Signs you’ll need to replace your roof include:
- Missing or cracked shingles
- Curled shingle edges
- Dark streaks caused by algae growth
- Moss has begun to grow
- Your roof is 20 years old or more
If any of these signs sound familiar, or if your roof is simply unsightly after years of exposure to the elements, it’s time to call in a professional roof replacement company.
