Roofs, just like anything else in construction, eventually need to be replaced. A replacement roof is no joke. It’ll set you back thousands, disrupt your everyday life and potentially change the look, scope and feel of your home. It may even change the value of your home. While these may seem like disadvantages of having a replacement roof, let’s look at when you need a new roof and why this matters to every homeowner out there.
Why You Might Need a Replacement Roof
There are many reasons why any homeowner might need to consider a replacement roof, including:
- Insurance issues
- Inspection failures
- Hail damage
- Weather damage
- Structural damage
- Asbestos or mold build-up
- Worn out
Most homeowners never deal with their roofs until something goes wrong. Ask yourself this: When was the last time you had your roof looked at or inspected either by you or a professional? The answer is most likely never. If you’ve lived in your home for years, you may not realize just how much wear and tear a roof takes throughout the year due to weather. Having someone come out once a year to look at your roof can help ensure it’s working properly and damage isn’t occurring that will lead you to repair or replace your roof before its time.
A replacement roof is where your old roof is stripped to its barebones, then replaced entirely. This is the most costly and devastating loss to a home in most cases. Having a roof completely redone can be prevent in many instances, if homeowners take responsibility for the care of their roof and make sure it’s inspected after major storms for damage and other issues. Roofs can last for decades if properly maintained and taken care of over the years.
