Tile roofs have an estimated lifespan of fifty years or more, and even shingle roofs can last for about twenty years. While fifty or twenty years is certainly a long time, it is not forever, and your roof will eventually need to be replaced. To help you determine when that time has come, our team at Aztec Roofs has put together a list of signs that you need a new roof—if you notice any of these happening to your roof, just give us a call to get our experts on the job.
- Leaks- One clear sign that you need a new roof—regardless of what material your roof is made of—is leaks in your existing one. If your roof has sprung a leak, you need to address the issue right away to prevent the water from damaging the rest of your structure.
- Age- Another sign that you need a new roof can be found by looking at the age of your current one. If your existing roof is at or approaching the upper limits of its estimated lifespan, you should have it replaced—it’s better to replace the roof before it completely fails than it is to wait too long.
- Damage- If your roof has been damaged by severe weather, wildlife activity, or anything else, you should have it inspected to determine whether it can be effectively repaired or needs to be replaced.
