How often should you repair your roof?

I am sure most homeowners wished that their roofs would last a lifetime.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case because the materials used in roofs will deteriorate over time.

So, eventually, a homeowner will need to replace the roof on their homes. My dad had his roof repaired a couple years ago, so this means he shouldn’t have to worry about his roof again for another 20 or so years. The materials used on a roof determines how long the roof will last for. If your roof has asphalt shingles, you can expect a lifespan between 15 and 30 years. However, if your roof is made from metal, you’ll have a longer lifespan of up to 75 years. Of course, if there are signs there is damage to your roof, it’s best to get it inspected and fixed immediately. A damaged roof includes but not limited to, loose, broken, or missing shingles, and signs of water damage or leaks inside your home. Additionally, holes and dark spots as well as mold or rot are sure signs of roofing issues. While it’s almost inevitable to avoid any kind of roofing repairs, it’s best to have a professional roofing company inspect your roof twice per year. Yearly inspections could identify minor problems before they become a major issue. Furthermore, an inspection could potentially spare a homeowner from paying extra money for those repairs. I have had my roof professionally inspected one time and thankfully, no damages were identified. That was a few years ago, so I need to schedule another inspection and perhaps increase those inspections to one per year. After all, my house is almost 20 years old, and the roof is made from shingles.
