Roof Replacement – When You Need One

Think you might need a roof replacement but aren’t sure why?

Roof replacements often come at times when homeowners least expect them. After all, roofs are often neglected; that part of the home assumed never to break down. But, like every part of your home, the roof is subject to wear, tear, degradation and damage. At IronHead Roofing, our roof replacement team have helped dozens of homeowners throughout Oregon get the roof replacement they need.

In today’s blog, we’re going to review the factors you need to think about before getting a roof replacement.

Reasons You Need a Roof Replacement

Roof replacements are preventable, highly preventable.

Many homeowners request an inspection only once serious damage has taken told. That is why frequent roof inspections are so important – they identify minor damage before it goes too far. This saves you considerable time, stress and expense. You should consult a roofing contractor if you notice any of the following emergent problems on your roof:

  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • Loose seams
  • Accumulated shingles in gutters
  • Damaged flashing

However, roof damage can take many other forms, too. For example, cracked paint and peeling wallpaper indicates the beginning of serious roof damage. These problems can, however, be resolved without the need for a full roof replacement. Homeowners not skilled at identifying these problems are encouraged to consult one of our roof inspectors today – we offer a free inspection and estimate of your roof.

Even though it might seem that your roof is in good shape, very often it isn’t. This often comes down to age. If your roof has not been replaced for twenty years, it might be time to consider a thorough inspection. Most roofs last two decades before a replacement is needed. However, some roof materials, such as slate and copper, may last significantly longer.

Roof replacements may be partial or full, depending on the extent of the damage. Again, once these problems emerge, such as leakage, they tend to deteriorate the roof further until a full roof replacement is required. Early inspection is, then, crucial.

Cost of Roof Replacement

There is no fixed cost for a roof replacement.

Cost depends upon many factors, such as the size of your roof; the extent of the replacement; the materials chosen to re-roof your home; and the time of year the replacement takes place. When these factors are considered in full, our roof repair team can come to an accurate and fair estimate.
