When Do You Need To Get A Roof Replacement?

Apr 27, 2020

Shingle roofs typically last for years, but exactly how long their lifespan is can differ based on the manufacturer and other factors. How do you know when a roof replacement is needed for your home in South Jersey or the greater Sarasota area?

Shingle Lifespan Per Manufacturer

The lifespan of your shingle roof depends in part on the manufacturer, although most have a base lifespan of around 20 years. Owens Corning, GAF, Onduvilla, and CertainTeed shingles offer varying warranties that can cover your shingles for 30-50 years.

Factors Affecting Shingle Lifespans

In addition to the manufacturer, a few other factors affect the lifespan of your shingle roof. 

  • The quality of the materials used for your roof. Higher quality materials are likely to last longer.
  • The kinds of weather conditions your roof has been exposed to over the years can also shorten its lifespan. Extreme temperature changes, severe storms and other weather conditions can result in damage or wear and tear.
  • The quality of your roof installation impacts the lifespan as well. A properly installed roof will have a longer lifespan overall. When a roof is installed with proper care, there is a lower risk of needing repairs done over the years.
  • The condition of your roof is another deciding factor. Severe damage, excessive wear and tear, or a lack of maintenance can lead to a shorter lifespan. Roofs kept in good condition over the years usually have a longer lifespan.

When to Get a Roof Replacement

A shingle roof nearing the end of its lifespan will need to be replaced sooner rather than later. 

Also, if you weren’t the original homeowner when the roof was installed, you might not know its exact age. Working with a professional roofing specialist can help you determine your roof’s age and whether it should be replaced. Roofing specialists can also assist you with choosing new shingles for your roof replacement.

Every aspect of this project was handled professionally and effectively by Surf & Turf. They communicated everything we needed to know well in advance. The project managers had everything well under control. The installers were truly amazing! This was probably one of the most challenging roofs they have replaced this year. Great care was taken to protect our home and our neighbors' properties. Surf and Turf was prepared, and cleaned up beautifully! Thank you Surf and Turf!!

Surf & turf roofing returned my call immediately. They sent a inspector out within a few days to discuss the job of having gutters installed. They started our job the following Monday as promised. They did a beautiful job of putting up seamless gutters. I like where they installed all the downspouts and the fact that they were secured properly. I am extremely pleased with the job they did and would recommend this company to anyone!

From start to finish Surf & Turf was great to deal with. Pricing was fantastic and they were the only estimate out of (5) that I received that actually inspected the roof and didn’t rely on remote satellite images. The crew they sent were top notch, pleasant to deal with and did a fantastic job overall. My front and backyard looked immaculate after they left. Thank you again for a great job, I will not hesitate to recommend your services.
