If a Roof Generally Lasts 50 Years, When Should I Get a New Roof?

Mar 01, 2023

New RoofIt’s no longer a secret: roofs can generally last up to 50 years. But does that mean the roof installed on your home 25 years ago still has half its lifespan left? Not necessarily. Many factors 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 more. The question of when to get a new roof isn’t so much about the lifespan of your roof—although that surely plays a part — but more about your roof itself.

The best way to know when to replace your home’s roof is to inspect it. You can view it from the ground, although you may want to climb a ladder to look closer. Take notice of the following:

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