How long do roofing shingles last?
There are several factors that will affect the lifespan of your roofing system such as the environment in which it’s in, the quality of the original installation, as well as the quality of the roofing material used.
Here is the lifespan of a typical roofing system based on the material used according to the National Association of Home Builders(NAHB):
- Shingle/Composition roofs | ~20 Years
- Fiber Cement Shingles | ~25 Years
- Wood Shake Roofs | ~30 Years
- Slate, copper and tile roofs | 50 Years+
It is important to understand that drastic weather conditions such as snow and hail can dramatically reduce the lifespan of your roofing system.
How long does it take to change a roof?
Changing a roof is no easy task. It can take a day to a few weeks depending on the complexity of the project. Having to do a tear off, steep pitched roofs, poor weather conditions as well as other factors can affect the timeline of a roof installation. However, most roof installations are done within 1-2 days.
What are the signs for a homeowner that a new roof is needed?
All too often, homeowners only discover that the roofing system installed on their home has failed after they see obvious signs of damage on their roof, or inside of their home. It is important to inspect the roof of your home at least 1-2 times a year to help avoid costly damages that may occur from a failing roofing system.
Here are some signs that indicate that you might need a new roof:
- Curled, warped, cracked or missing shingles
- Deteriorating flashing, siding or loose seams.
- Leaks in the attic after rainfall.
- Excessive amount of shingle granules in the gutters and downspouts.
- Water stains on the inside walls and ceilings of the home.
- Blistering or peeling paint on the inside/outside of the home.
- High energy bills.
