    Leaks, missing or torn shingles, loose flashings, excessive shingle granules in gutters, and ceiling spots can signal roof problems. Age is another indicator; if your roof is 20 years old, it could be at the end of its lifespan.

    Choosing which type of roof is right for you will depend upon numerous factors, including your budget, taste and needs. Before making your choice, consider the lifecycle cost of your roofing material. Some materials, although initially more expensive, require less maintenance and have a longer life expectancy than others. An asphalt shingle roof might last 20 years, but a metal roof can last more than 50 and might be more cost-effective in the long run.

    Shingles come in different grades. The better the grade, the longer the life expectancy, which can range from 15 to more than 40 years.

    Not necessarily. Our crews can often make repairs to extend the life of a roof that is otherwise in good condition. However, if a roof is demonstrating many symptoms of age and wear, replacement may be the only option.
