Residential roof replacement

At some point, the maintenance and repair of your roof just isn’t enough, and you have to make a radical decision: replace it. Find out everything you need to know about renovating your roof.

When should you consider replacing your roof?

Replacing the roof is one of the jobs that homeowners are most reluctant to undertake because of the cost. However, this is a task that you need to carry out sooner or later, depending on the age of your roof and any damage already present.

Do you have a question?

Quick and free quote

Roof replacement depends on the material it’s made of, but above all on the degree of wear and tear. Some roofs can last more than half a century, while others last no more than a decade or so.

Over and above the age of your roof, replacement may also be necessary if your roof has suffered major damage as a result of bad weather. In fact, depending on the extent of the damage, it makes more sense to replace the entire system than to repair it.

What time of year is the best for replacement?

Roof replacement work on a residential property usually takes several days. It is therefore not recommended in winter, when snow is likely to fall at any time. Summer is not the best time either, given the frequency of rain.

Roofers recommend spring and especially autumn to replace your roof. The weather is pleasant during these seasons, and the risk of rain and snow is rare. What’s more, the materials are not subject to major temperature variations, making them easy to install and more efficient.

Points to bear in mind

Here are a few points to consider when thinking about replacing your roof.

Inspect for water infiltration

An inspection must be carried out for any water infiltration. Indeed, an aging or damaged roof is likely to let water run inside the house. Whether the infiltration is minimal or not, the entire affected area should be inspected and any necessary repairs considered before installing the new roof.

Check the condition of the framework and insulation

Over time, framing and insulation can also wear out. If you’re planning to replace your roof, you should also check the condition of these components. What’s more, if you’re planning to use new materials for your new roof, the framework may have to be modified.

Consider changing your roofing materials

Finally, if you’re replacing your roof, you may want to consider a complete change of materials. For example, if you had an asphalt shingle roof, you can opt for a metal roof for the next few years. In this way, you can test the strengths of new roof types and bring a new aesthetic to your home.
