Common Roof Replacement Materials
When choosing a new roof, you will have to choose new roofing materials. Below is a list of some of the most roofing material choices for homeowners.
Asphalt Shingle Roof Replacement
Asphalt is a common material for shingles due to its low weight and ease of installation. Asphalt shingles are low-cost to manufacture and compatible with most roofing systems. The main downside of asphalt is that they are not as high-quality as new shingles could be.
Tile roofs are another great residential choice for your roof. Tiles are beautiful and ideal for warmer climates. In severe weather conditions, they can break, causing roof leaks. They are still energy efficient and long-lasting.
Metal roofs are another common choice due to their extreme durability and longevity. A metal roof can last upwards of 50 years if you remember regular care and maintenance. However, metal panels are heavy, and your contractor might have to install extra supports to bear the additional weight.
Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a synthetic material favored for its low weight and good insulation properties. EPDM rubber is easy to install and virtually waterproof. It is also highly chemically resistant and can expand and contract with temperatures without cracking or tearing. However, EPDM is less durable than other materials.
Stone is another popular material because of its natural appearance and strength. Like metal, stone can last for over 50 years and provides a classic, rustic appearance. Of course, stone is heavy and will require additional support to bear the weight.
Signs You Need Roof Replacement
No matter how well you maintain it, your roof will eventually need replacing. Below are some of the most common signs you need to replace your roof.
Age of Roof
The most obvious sign you need a replacement is your roof’s age. If your existing roof is more than 20 years old, you should consider replacing it. After about 20 years, the cost of repairing your old roof will outweigh the costs of replacing it.
Sagging Roof Line
A sagging roof line indicates that your entire roof has structural damage. Structural roof damage is a serious issue because a damaged roof could collapse, causing significant injuries. If you can’t repair the roof damage, you’ll need to get a replacement.
High Energy Bills
If you notice your energy bill spiking, it could be your old roof. As your roof ages, the material wears and cannot insulate heat as well. Older roofs lose a lot of heat, causing your HVAC to work harder during the fall and winter. If your house heating costs skyrocket, but your HVAC is in good condition, the problem is most likely your roof.
Frequent Repairs to Your Roof
The older your roof gets, the more often you’ll need roof repairs. After a certain point, repairing will cost more than replacement. If repairs are more than 50% of the replacement roof cost, you should consider getting a new roof installed.
Curled or Cracked Shingles
Damaged shingles could be a sign that your roof is nearing the end of its life. If your shingles are curled or feature significant cracks or flaking, you’ll probably need to replace your singles with new material. Cracked shingles could be from water damage, sunlight, or general wear and tear.
