Some common questions people ask regarding roof lifespan are “how long does a roof last?” and “when should I replace my roof?” While these may seem like simple questions, the answers can vary greatly.
As you may already know, there are many types of roofs such as asphalt 3 tab shingles, asphalt architectural shingles, wood shingles, slate, metal, and tile. Each style roof has a respective amount of time that it could last or is expected to last in the right conditions. These estimates are unable to predict what the roof will endure over the course of time. Storms, heavy rain or wind can damage even the newest of roofs. The best way to know when it is time to replace a roof is to schedule an inspection by a reputable roofing contractor.
Some common types of roof damage are hail damage and wind damage. Signs of hail damage to shingles could be bruising, cracking, granules missing from asphalt, or damage to any soft metal. Signs of shingles damaged by wind could be detached shingles or creased shingles that have been pushed back by high winds.
