When Is It Time for a New Roof?

Learn What To Look For In Your Roof


How long has it been since you replaced your roof? Have you noticed leaks inside? Has your home been in the path of a storm? These are important questions to think about, and the answers could determine if it’s time for a new roof on your Iowa home. Contact RoofPros today for an inspection and free estimate.

Roof Age

Roofs are built to last, but even the most sturdy roof can only stand up to the elements for so long. In general, most roofing will last about 20 years. In some cases, it can wear out sooner or continue to last for several years longer. If it’s been between 15 and 20 years since your roof was replaced, it may be a good time to get an inspection.

Indoor Leaks

If you’ve noticed leaks in your home, you likely need to have your roof repaired or replaced. Even if you haven’t noticed leaks indoors yet, it’s also a good idea to check in your attic every few months to ensure there are no leaks spreading that haven’t permeated your ceilings yet.

Roof Damage

When a storm rolls through or tree branches start scraping on your roof, you may notice some damage to your shingles. However, even when you don’t see the damage right away, that doesn’t mean everything is fine. If your home is in the path of a storm or you have concerns, you should always contact professional roofers for a checkup.
