Determining when to replace a roof is not always a straightforward task. While obvious problems such as a hole in your roof or leaks are clear signs of an issue, other indicators may be more subtle. If your roof is over a decade old, it is wise to consider a replacement other than waiting for a damaged roof to lead to more serious problems. Signs such as curling shingles, missing or damaged flashing, ice dams, or discolored ceilings and walls are also signals that it’s time for a new roof.

The longevity of a roof is subject to different factors, such as materials, installation, and ventilation, so it’s hard to give a definitive answer. Generally, a robust, well-constructed roof can last anywhere from 12 to 30 years, depending on the quality of the shingles and the underlayment.
Although traditional roofing materials may diminish over time, synthetic or metal roofs can last for a lifetime!

Your choice of roof style–shingle or flat–and material–asphalt, wood-shakes, synthetic, or designer/luxury shingles–depends on your budget. But there’s more to a roof than just shingles. Don’t forget about the other essential materials such as decking, ice and water barrier, flashing, ventilation and more.
