When Should You Replace Your Roof?
There are a few common reasons you might consider replacing your roof.
The most common reason to replace your roof is old age. Shingle roofs typically last between 15-30 years. If you are unsure of your roof’s age, that’s okay. A roofing contractor can help.
It’s always a good idea to have your roof inspected by a reputable roofing contractor in your area to determine your roof’s age and condition.
Storm damage is another reason to consider replacing your roof. Water, wind, and hail damage often leads to missing shingles, roof leaks, wood rot and flashing issues. Your contractor can determine if repairs or a full replacement is necessary during your roof inspection.
Is A New Roof Covered by Insurance?
Roof replacements are often covered by insurance if considerable damage was done during a storm or other natural event. Your roofing contractor can help you determine what is covered and how to open a claim.
When choosing your roofing contractor be sure they have experience working with insurance claims. They can ensure you receive the best coverage and help negotiate with your insurance provider during the claim process.
