When Is Roof Replacement Absolutely Necessary?
Although it is not difficult to see how replacing your roof can be costly, the benefits of a reliable roof are always worth the investment. Although most roofs last between 15 and 25 years, there are many things that could make you need a roof replacement sooner than expected. You don’t want to find yourself in a situation where your roof needs to be replaced immediately. This can lead to high costs and make it difficult to hire quality roofing contractors.

3 Signs To Watch Out For When You Might Need Roof Replacement
Although a roof replacement can offer many benefits, some people may not require a roof immediately. If your roof isn’t showing any of these signs, you can usually get by with regular roof inspections once a year or after major hurricanes. All Star Roof Repair identified four common issues that indicate a roof replacement should be a priority.
1. Your Neighbors Have New Roofs
Many homeowners don’t know how old their roof is. The actual age of a roof can get lost in the shuffle of house sales and purchases. Do you still live under the original roof? What was the last time that maintenance was done? Are there any repairs that have been done? Many homeowners don’t know the answers to these questions and are unsure when their roofs should be replaced.
You can look at the activities of your neighbors to determine if it is time to replace your roof. Most homes in a community were built within a few decades of each other. If you see one or more of the homes being renovated, you may need a roof replacement. You can start by scheduling an inspection or estimate.
2. Your Roof Looks Like a Garden
It is not a good sign to see plants or moss growing on your roof. It may be a sign that the roof is gaining “rustic charm”, or that it has become a place that homeowners don’t have to maintain. A roof that is growing and is likely to be suffering from water damage and structural decay. Water and moisture can build up on roof shingles that are missing or cracked and cause mold growth.
This is important because if water and moisture get into roofing structures, they can quickly turn to rot. This can cause damage to both the roofing supports and the shingles. This “garden” can lead to a sagging roof that eventually collapses if it isn’t taken care of. It is best to remove the growth and contact a professional roofing contractor for assessment. A roof replacement can often be the best choice if there is excessive growth.
3. Your Roof Has Missing Shingles or Discolored
Some discoloration in shingles is normal. However, if your roof appears patchwork, it could be a sign of extensive repairs that have been made. Your roofing contractors should be capable of matching the same shingles that you have to create a seamless appearance. You will notice a mismatched roof when contractors use different shingles or lower-quality roofing shingles. It can be even more distracting if the shingles are missing entirely.
If your roof is missing shingles or has discoloration, you only have one option: replace it. The problem is not solved by replacing the missing or discolored shingles. This doesn’t solve the problem. You can have a consistent, reliable roof for many years with a roof replacement.
