What is the typical lifespan of a new roof?

Image of Roof Replacement

A standard new roof in Houston and the surrounding areas has a lifespan of approximately 18-20 years. The life of a roof is affected by many factors. The quality of the shingles plays a big part. Obviously, the better quality shingles and other materials used, the better the chances that your roof will serve you well for many years. At Acadian, we only use high-grade shingles from a handful of manufacturers that are recognized as leaders in the industry. These include CertainTeed because of their standard of excellence and the warranties they offer. We believe in best-practices, and that includes using only the best materials.

The pitch of the roof also comes into play. A roof with a higher pitch usually lasts longer because the rain runs off quicker on a steep slope. The weather is another factor that can have a significant impact on the life of your roof. Houston has some pretty harsh summers, and the heat and sun will shorten the life of shingles. Extreme cold can also have a negative impact. In a perfect climate, a high-quality shingle roof could be expected to last 25-30 years. An installation in Houston of a high-quality roof replacement, performed by an accredited, professional roofing company, along with the proper maintenance, could approach that length of time.

How do I determine if my roof needs to be replaced?

This question is one of the most frequently asked that we get. Most homeowners generally do not check their roofs with any regularity. Unfortunately, often the first sign of a problem is a leak. However, there are tell-tale signs that you can see with a visual inspection. These common signs of wear and tear include smoothness, shininess, buckling, blistering, cracking, or peeling. The strain of defending your house from the elements will show up over time and can be seen clearly, even before a leak occurs. If a leak does happen, it doesn't necessarily mean that you will need a to replace your roof. A small area of damage can more often than not, be repaired efficiently.

Of course, it is better to discover the problem before your roof begins leaking. We recommend that you walk around your home at least once or twice a year and perform a visual inspection of your roof from all sides. If you see any of the problems mentioned above, give us a call. An older roof with the warning signs of wear and tear that we have discussed could be an indication of approaching failure. Our qualified technicians will be happy to inspect your roof for problem areas. We will help you find the best solutions. We will then make a recommendation for repair or replacement based on the condition of your roof.

    ROOF REPLACEMENT STRATEGIES – WHEN, WHY AND HOW


  • September 5, 2016

    How much might a roof replacement cost you?

    A roof replacement can be one of the most costly upgrades a homeowner might make, but it also can be the most necessary, and the most beneficial in terms of home resale value.

     

    Your local roofing contractor will consider several variables unique to your home to determine the price of your roof replacement. Factors include your roof’s size, its pitch, accessibility, and the general cost of materials. Due to these factors, the price for your new roof may differ significantly from that of a neighbor’s down the street.

     

    The one thing you can control in terms of costs is the material type. In general, asphalt shingles are the cheapest materials to use, as well as the most popular, and can run as low as $5,000 for a roof replacement. Higher grade roofing materials can lead to roof replacements costing as much as $25,000. However, the average homeowner can expect to pay around $12,000 for the complete roof replacement process, from the removal of the initial roof to the installation of the new one.

  • May 3, 2016

    The cost of a full roof replacement isn’t something most homeowners want to think about. However, every roof, at some point, will need to be replaced. You can help delay this inevitability by staying on top of roof maintenance and roof repairs when needed. Conducting regular inspections of your roof’s surface and taking care of minor issues as they occur can mean the difference between calling in for repairs and needing a full roof replacement tomorrow.

     

    The following are some of the major danger signals you should look for during such routine maintenance:

     

    1. Water pooling in your attic after heavy rains or winter ice and snow buildup

    2. Visible water stains on interior walls or ceilings, particularly in the home’s highest level.

    3. Soft spots or water pooling on your roof.

    4. Evident shingle decay, watch out especially for any mold and mildew growth on top or beneath               shingles.

    5. Any missing, loose, cracked, or curling shingles.

     

    If the damages relate mostly to shingles in a certain area, such as around a chimney or underneath a branching overhang, it’s likely enough that minor roof repairs are sufficient, However, if you’re seeing more of the significant damage signals of the above #s 1-3, then it’s important to contact a roofing professional to inquire about the necessity of a full roof replacement.

    Roof replacement is inevitable at some point for every homeowner. Taking proper care of your roof and conducting regular maintenance will ensure your roof lasts as long as possible and stay looking it’s best. However, sooner or later roof replacement will be necessary.

    When do you need a roof replacement?

    The age of your roof can have a big impact on whether or not you need a roof replacement. Most roofs will last between twenty and 25 years depending on how well it has been cared for. If you roof is older than this you may need a new roof.

    If your shingles or buckling or curling or are missing altogether you may very well need a roof replacement. This is a sure sign that the shingles have reached their limits and it is time to have some work carried out.

    Finally, if you see any light coming in through your roof it’s time to replace your roof. To check this, simply go up to your attic and inspect visually. While you’re up there you should also check for moisture in your insulation.

    Why do you need a roof replacement?

    Replacing your roof when it needs it will save you money in the long run. If you don’t go ahead with replacing your roof when it needs it you may end up having to replace the roof deck too. If your roof is in need of replacement be sure and get the job done right away and don’t wait around for further work to be required.

    How do you replace your roof?

    While you can replace your roof yourself, it is a huge undertaking and requires special equipment and skills. The best option is always to call a professional roofing company who are experienced and have a good reputation. You want to ensure you get the job done right the first time and a professional service is the best way of ensuring this.

    No one wants to replace their roof. Having to do so is understandably a headache that nobody ever wants to confront. But, it is important for the life and structure of your home or office to have a solid, functional roof. A replacement by a reputable company runs smoothly and relatively fast.

    When Do You Need A Replacement Roof?

    If, upon inspection, your roof is found to have issues severe enough that repair will not be adequate. Some of these problems include:

    • Broken or missing shingles
    • Missing or loose flashing
    • Water stains on inside walls
    • Obvious holes in the roof

    Why You May Need Your Roof Replaced

    If a roof is damaged to the point of needing replacement and nothing is done, then the structural integrity of the home can be compromised. Leaks can ruin interior walls and promote mold growth. The value of the structure will depreciate significantly. It is never a good idea to delay repair or replacement.

    How to go About Having Your Roof Replaced

    The first step is to call a professional roofing company and have them do an inspection. Legitimate roofers will inspect for free. If they asses that a replacement is needed, then you should get a second opinion just to make sure.

    A roof leak is not always a sign of a catastrophic roof problem, especially if caught early, but it is an indication that your roof has issues. There are other signs that indicate that serious problems may exist. Here are a few tips to determine if you need repairs or a new roof on your home or office.


    Evaluate

    Look at your roof. Walk around your home or office and visually inspect the shingles and the flashing. If you see any issues, you should call a roofing company to come and make a thorough inspection. If there are problems, they will provide an estimate of repair or replacement costs.

    When

    If on inspection you notice cracked or missing shingles, a sagging deck, discoloration or dark spots, leaks, or if you see light showing through from below, then it is time to have a professional evaluation. At this point, it is likely that you will need a replacement.

    Why

    A damaged roof will eventually leak. Moisture can cause severe harm. It can cause wood to rot, as well as create an environment for mold to grow. A leaking roof that goes without repair or replacement can develop worse structural problems as time goes on.

    How

    A professional roofer is your best ally to ensure a correct and secure roof replacement. This type of work doesn’t fall under the “do-it-yourself” category. Accredited roofing firms have trained professionals that will do the work safely and efficiently. Trying to do it yourself is dangerous and could cause further problems. Some will even negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf.

    At Acadian, we believe in maintenance and prevention. There is no reason that a properly installed roof should not last years, barring severe storm damage. Please call us if you have any questions about the condition of your roof.
