Six Signs It’s Time for a New Roof
If your roof is showing signs of a problem, you might be tempted to call for repairs. While repairs can solve minor issues and prolong the life of your roof, there will come a time where repairs are no longer the wise choice. If repairs are tremendously expensive or your roof is approaching the end of its expected life anyway, then replacing your roof may be the better choice. Is the time right for you? We encourage you to reach out to our team to schedule an inspection and find out. However, here are a few signs you might need a new roof soon, if not right away.
You might need a new roof if:
- Your current roof is past its expected longevity
- Your roof needs major repairs valued at more than half of the cost of replacing your roof
- Your roof needs at least one repair visit from a technician per year
- Your roof leaks like a spaghetti strainer every time it rains
- Your attic smells strongly of mold or mildew
- Your home struggles with indoor humidity problems

Investing in a new roof is a big expense. That means you’ll want to know that you’re getting good value and that you’ll be able to enjoy your new roof for years to come. The biggest influence on your roof’s longevity is the type of roof you choose to install. Some roofs last longer than others, and not every roof is the right choice for every property.
With proper maintenance, care, and prompt repairs, you can expect your new roof to last for:
- Asphalt shingles: 20 years
- Brava composite shingles: 50 years
- Cedar shakes: 30 to 50 years
- Slate roofing: 75 to 100 years
- Stone-coated metal: 40-70 years
A roof’s longevity isn’t the only factor that plays into its cost, but it does give you a good idea of where a particular material falls on the price scale. For example, asphalt shingle roofs are easy to install, easy to maintain, and generally readily available for purchase, so they tend to carry a lower price tag. At the other end of the spectrum, slate tiles are far more expensive to purchase and require extensive additional skill and training to install properly. This brings their overall cost up, but they may also require additional work to your roof’s structure in order to support their tremendous weight. Make sure you talk to your roofer about this during your initial consultation to find out if this extra expense might be necessary for you to install a slate roof.
