Making the choice to get a new roof is a big decision, and we are often asked the question, “Is it worth it to get a new roof?” The answer is “It really depends.” But that’s where we are here to help. We have listed some signs below that all homeowners should be aware of and factors we consider when making this decision and recommendation.
Here are some reasons to consider getting a new roof:
- Cracked, curled, or buckling shingles: Shingles are supposed to lie flat against the roof, so if curling or buckling shingles are noticed, it might be time to have a professional take a look. Cracked shingles are also a sign of wear. Being aware of the shape of a home’s roof can help minimize the scope of the repair because the homeowner can take care of things early, which can help extend the life of the roof.
- The roof is more than 20 years old: Like most things, roofs have lifespans that should be considered when deciding on whether or not to get a new roof. Repairing something small can be the way to go, but it is often worth it to replace the entire thing. It is helpful to be aware of when neighbors are replacing their roofs, as houses built during the same time often need roof replacements during similar times.
- Leaking: A roof that is leaking is definitely cause for concern. Ensuring that is taken care of sooner rather than later can prevent others, even more, costly repairs from being necessary.
