There are a lot of factors that go into how long a roof will last. While most roofs have a warranty, this doesn’t mean that your roof will necessarily go this long without needing to be replaced. Some will wear out faster due to severe weather and environmental conditions, while others could last longer. Most roofs, however, are designed to last between 15 and 25 years; some types of slate and metal roofs could last longer.
Severe weather, direct sun, algae and mildew growth can all be factors in what causes a roof to wear out. Hail stones striking the roof and removing some of the granules are also a problem. Darker colored roofs tend to wear out slightly faster than lighter colored roofs as well.
If your roof is old and underperforming, roof replacement can help lower energy bills. It’s ideal that the attic remains close to the outside temperature, but overheating during the summer is a sign of inadequate ventilation. This can directly cause the HVAC to work in overdrive. A new roof lowers energy bills with ventilation and sound materials that prevent excess drafts and water leaks.
Quality roofing is one of the top ROI remodeling projects for homes in New York. New roof installation includes the following.
- Increased curb appeal with varying shingle colors that add depth to the home.
- Potential energy savings with professional roof installation and attic ventilation.
- Quality roofing replacements are designed to last for a lifetime.
- Improved home value with 60%+ ROI.
Every roof is different, as well as what our roofers will find when they get up there. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the size and the scope of the job.
The type of roof that you get should complement the rest of the style and features of your home. You should also take into consideration the material, how long it lasts, and the costs to make this personal decision.
