Common Reasons that a Roof Needs to Be Replaced

Common Reasons that a Roof Needs to Be Replaced

In many cases, roof damage can be easily repaired by a professional roofer. However, there are some scenarios in which the problem is extensive enough that roof replacement is the better choice. At RoofTechPro, our local roofing company can expertly install your new roof. We specialize in both residential and commercial roofing in Northeast Ohio.

When is it time to install a new roof?

Oftentimes, an experienced roofer will be able to quickly identify and repair a water leak. But if water is leaking extensively on your roof, then it may be time for replacement. In the event that you notice water spots on your ceiling, you'll want to give us a call so we can inspect the matter and determine whether repair or replacement will be your best option.

When individual shingles are cracked or otherwise damaged, they can often be repaired in short order. But when shingles throughout the roof start curling or buckling, then your roof has likely reached a point where your best option is replacement. This is prone to happening toward the end of a roof's expected lifespan. Standard asphalt shingle roofing can generally be expected to last for 20 years, while premium shingles may last for more than 30. By comparison, clay tile roofing can be trusted to last for at least 50 years, and may hold up for closer to 100 years or even more. Slate tiles commonly last for 100 years, and can hold up for more than 200. Certain types of metal roofing are able to last for more than 100 years. As a roof enters the age range of its expected lifespan, you'll want to start budgeting for a replacement.

Fire-related damage is another common reason that a new roof is needed. Flames are not the sole cause of serious fire damage to roofing. Smoke, as well as water used to put out the blaze, can cause serious structural problems with the roof. Weather-related damage can also necessitate roof replacement. During a massive windstorm, shingles could get ripped away and big limbs could come crashing down, causing major damage.
