Residential Roof Replacement
Many people upon realizing that their roof is leaking or getting older may immediately begin thinking of a roof replacement. What they may not realize, however, that there is often a lot more to it than that. Sometimes the roof just needs repairs or a partial reroofing, other times there are already multiple layers of shingles that must come off, driving up the cost of the roof replacement. Therefore, in order to get the most realistic idea of what to expect, have a roof inspection done before you replace the roof.
Sometimes, it’s obvious to tell that you need a new roof. Major storm damage, for instance, can make even a perfectly installed roof need to be replaced before its time. But many times, the signs you need roof replacement are more subtle.
Here are five signs that indicate your roof might need to be replaced:
- Water leakage that appears in the attic or in the ceilings of rooms below the attic space.
- Missing, cracked, worn or damaged shingles
- Damaged flashing around vents, chimneys, eaves, and skylights
- Sagging roof sections or sagging gutters
- A dramatic change in heating or cooling bills

Frequently Asked Residential Roofing Questions
Homeowners often neglect their roofing system until it begins to leak or other serious damage occurs. In most cases, roofing issues can be discovered way before major (and expensive) problems happen. If you notice cracked, warped or missing shingles, broken flashing, loose seams, or large amounts of shingle granules in the gutter, it’s time to call a roofing contractor. Cracked paint, peeling wallpaper or wall coverings, and discolored plasterboard can also indicate roof damage. Periodic inspections can help uncover potential problems and allow you to address them before they become a major investment.
There are a few ways to determine if it’s time to replace your roofing system.
Age: Roofing systems generally last around 2 decades. If your roof is approaching 20 years of age, it’s near the end of its useful life.
Leaks: If you see evidence of water leaking inside to your home, it probably has been leaking for quite a while. Water can damage rafters, plywood sheathing, ceilings, walls and more. Extensive structural damage can create a huge problem for homeowners. It’s often cheaper and less involved to simply replace the roof before it begins to leak.
Appearance: Shingles that have begun to curl, break, or warp are a good indication that it’s time for a reroofing service.
Although it may seem advantageous to install new shingles on top of your old roof because it’s cheaper, faster, and requires less labor, you could be setting yourself up for future costs (and headaches). Unless your current roofing system is completely problem free and only features a single layer of functioning shingles, your new roofing system may fail way too soon.
Many roofing contractors may be willing to simply nail new shingles on top of old shingles, but we always advises stripping the old materials complete off, all the way down to the deck, and then adding the new materials. Any defects, vulnerabilities, and potential problems in the plywood deck or truss system will go unnoticed unless you de-nail & re-nail.
