The Burning Question: Do I Need A New Roof?

Lifespan Of A Roof

Roofs can last up to 50 years but that doesn’t mean the roof on your home installed 25 years ago still has a lifespan left. There are many factors that can reduce the lifespan of your roof, including the type of roof you have, the way it was installed if there is any weather damage, and etc. Climate and weather conditions such as snow and hail in the midwest can cut the life span of all types of roofs. The burning question of when to get a new roof isn’t so much about the lifespan of your roof but more about the roof itself.

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It is important to inspect it yearly to make sure there are no damages done to it from the changing weather Iowa faces.

Ways To Tell You Need A New Roof

The best way to know when you need to replace your Central Iowa home’s roof is to inspect it. You can do this by viewing it from the ground, although you may want to climb a ladder to get a closer look. You can also reach out to a licensed and insured contractor to come out and inspect your roof if you don’t feel comfortable climbing up on a ladder. When inspecting your roof take notice of:

  • Curling shingles
  • Cracked shingles
  • Blown-off shingles
  • Bald spots
  • Moss or algae growth
  • Cracks at the flashing around vents or skylights

These are all red flags that it is time to replace your roof. Leaving your roof with these damages can cause more issues to your home down the road. Knowing the warning signs listed above is a great way to be proactive and protect your most valued asset, your home. We recommend yearly inspections in order to eliminate the damage that can be caused by a faulty roof.
