Every home has a point where it must receive a roof replacement. For asphalt shingles, that time comes sooner than clay or terracotta tiles. On average, asphalt shingle roofs last between 15 to 30 years. Proper care and maintenance allow them to last longer, but there is a point where a replacement is necessary. Clay tiles can easily last up to 50 years or longer.
When your roof has reached a specific age, it is time for a proper replacement. Here at Golden City Remodeling, we have a team of expert roofers and contractors to get the job done. They use their years of experience alongside industry-trusted methods to deliver phenomenal roof replacement services.
Signs of Needing a Roof Replacement
Determining when you need a roof replacement can serve to be difficult for some homeowners, especially if you aren’t sure what to look for. In this case, we can help you determine what signs prompt, at the very least, an inspection. If your roof has any of the following signs, contact Golden City Remodeling.
More Than 20-Years-Old: A more than 20 years old roof should be inspected for signs of serious aging or deterioration. For asphalt shingles, this is almost its entire lifespan. With that said, you should have our team inspect your roof to determine if it needs to be replaced yet.
Constant Repairs: A minor repair here and there is common for all types of roofs. However, annual repairs or a repair every few months is a serious issue. It shows that your entire roof is unable to protect your home and is slowly falling apart. A complete roof replacement will help you save money in the long run.
Mold Growth: The appearance of mold in your attic or on the decking tells us moisture is making its way through the roofing materials. As shingles and tile age, they allow the elements to make their way through the roof much easier. As a result, mold and mildew spores can take root.
Roof Rot: As we have already alluded to, moisture is your roof’s number one enemy. It can have profound and expensive effects when it comes to contact with the decking and structural support system. Catching roof rot early is the best way to save money.
