new roofDo you have a roof leak? Do you need your entire roofing system replaced with a new one? If your roof is leaking, it doesn’t mean that you need to get a new roof. But the case isn’t the same for everyone.

Keep in mind that roof replacement always comes at the most inopportune moment. So, it’s best if you know when is the perfect time to get a new roof.

Here are three reasons why you need a roof replacement so you have a good idea if it’s the right time for such a project.

When to Get A New Roof

End of Life

The lifespan of your roofing system will play a huge role in determining whether you need a new roof or not. If you have a standard asphalt shingle roofing system, its lifespan is 25 years. If it has reached that limit, you need to consider getting a new roof.

Your roof will get close to that estimated lifespan if it was installed properly and if it’s well ventilated. A roofer will suggest that you replace your roof once it reaches about 85 percent of the manufacturer’s life. Don’t wait until it’s way too late before you act. You should stay on top of your potential problems and change your roof before the end of its lifespan.

Premature Failure

Your roofing material should last as long as the estimate of its manufacturer. However, there are cases when the roofing system fail prematurely and demand a new roof. The most common causes of premature roof failure are insufficient attic ventilation and improper roof installation.

If your roof was not installed correctly, then you will find roof shingles in your backyard or even some full sections that slide off your roof. In case your attic was not provided with sufficient ventilation then the damage that was caused by the trapped cold and heat will significantly shorten the life of your roofing system.

You should also know that your roof’s warranty will be voided if the roof isn’t properly installed or not given the right ventilation.

Storm Damage

The weather in the area where you live as well as the type of storms that your roof faces play a role in its wear and tear. However, that’s not the only thing that you need to worry about when talking about the weather.

Heavy storm damage caused by hail, wind, and tornado can lead to roof replacement. In case high winds rip your shingles off or if a tree accidentally falls on your roof then you need to get your roof replaced.

What do you need to consider if you need to replace your asphalt roof?

Now that you have a good idea of the reasons why you will need to replace your roof, there are other things you need to consider. You should think about whether you have plans to sell your home in the next few years or if you have the budget for a new roof.
