When Should I Replace My Roof?

This is one of our most frequently asked questions. Replacing your roof depends on the wear-and-tear of your roof, as well as it’s age. Generally, it is best to replace your roof as it nears the end of its warranty, which is around every 20 years depending on the roofing material of your roof. However, it is best to replace your roof whenever it has suffered significant damage. Missing shingles, missing granules from your shingles, broken flashing and other signs will tell you that your roof needs to be repaired.

Does My Roof Need Repair or Replacement?

Your roof will need repair when it shows isolated damage or minor wear-and-tear, and isn’t nearing or hasn’t surpassed it’s warranty. However, if your roof exhibits more extensive damage, then usually it is best to completely replace it. In some cases, it is best to compare the cost: sometimes roof replacement provides more value than simply repairing it. To learn what is right for you, it is best to get a quote from top-rated roofing contractors in Nashville.
