Wood shakes and shingles generally have a lifespan of 15 to 30 years. Of course, the lifespan is affected by the quality of the shingles, your location, your home’s tree cover, and the installer’s work quality. It is wise to note that the weather, sunlight, and poor roof deck will affect the lifespan of your roof.
However, with GAF and CertainTeed Shingles, you get lifetime warranties, which is something that you did not get several years ago. We always advise our clients to consider these shingles, as they are of high quality. Nevertheless, you will know you need a new roof by checking for the following warning signs:
If your residential roof is over 15 years, it is wise to call a professional to investigate. Sometimes, damages are not visible to an untrained eye. Remember, prevention is better than cure. Call us today to investigate whether you need a new roof.
The truth is that it will depend on the roofing shingles (if they have passed their prime) and the original contractor (if they installed them improperly). If the original installation was done correctly, then repairs can be done. Furthermore, if the damage is not extensive or affected the integrity of the whole roof, then repairs can be done. In other cases, it would be economically and financially smarter to replace the whole roof.
If your downspouts and gutters are in good condition, our roofing contractor will work around them. In other words, it is not necessary to replace them when they are in good condition. Our contractors are experienced when it comes to working around them. To avoid damaging them, our contractors will never remove them or try to reinstall them when working on your roof. On the other hand, if your gutters are relatively in good shape, we will only conduct minor repairs. Lanier Roofing is a one-stop-shop, offering full roofing services.
Roofing repairs and replacement is a messy job and comes with a lot of noisy processes. For this reason, protect yourself by finding a place where you can relax away from the noise and work. This also includes your pet. There is no way around this. However, we take it upon us to minimize your convenience and hassle.
A majority of today’s new roof design and systems can last up to 20 years. Although there are other roof types like slate, composite, clay times, and specific metal (copper) that are known to last longer than 20 years.
Remember, a roof system’s lifespan is affected by many factors. For this reason, it is wise always to have a professional inspect your roof after a few years. Doing this will help you avoid major roof repairs or replacements. You should also note that some roofing product manufacturers offer different warranty options. For this reason, it is wise to always research more on warrantees before you buy.
