​Roof replacement may not be the most glamorous home improvement, but it’s arguably the most important. Your roof serves as the first line of protection between your property and the outdoors. A robust barrier ensures you, your family, and your possessions remain safe for decades.

If you’re tinkering with the idea of roof replacement, contact our East Coast Roofing, Siding & Windows. Our knowledgeable and friendly experts can provide recommendations for potential solutions. Our unbeatable service and prices are why homeowners across New Jersey trust us with their roof replacement.

When to Get a Roof Replacement

Water Leaks

If you notice water stains in your attic or on your walls, you probably have a leaky roof. Fixing the leaks is the easy part. However, finding the source is much more challenging.

Water leaks are often invisible to the untrained eye. Moisture in your attic or roof can manifest as mold, rot, and other structural damage if left untreated.

If you have multiple leaks, roof replacement can present an all-encompassing solution. Our roofing experts remove the existing shingles and fill the cracks or holes in your roof. Once the substrates dry, we can replace your shingles with fresh material for a seamless roof replacement.

Damaged Shingles

Shingle damage comes in all forms. Some of the most common problems include curling, cracking, and blistering, which undercut your roof’s structural integrity. Roof repairs can handle these problems most of the time. If you have extensive damage, though, roof replacement may be the more budget-friendly option.

We recommend roof replacement at East Coast Roofing, Siding & Windows if you see damage on 30% or more of your roof. While we can repair the issues individually, you’re better off getting a new roof entirely. The upgraded system will eliminate any existing shingle damage and expose any potential structural problems.

Aging Roof

Every roof has a predetermined life expectancy. You can extend that lifespan with routine maintenance, but at some point, you’ll need to replace your roofing system. Here is the average life expectancy for the most popular roofing materials:

  • TPO: 7 to 20 years
  • Asphalt shingles: 12 to 20 years
  • EPDM rubber: 15 to 25 years
  • Wood shingles: 20 to 30 years
  • Architectural shingles: 25 to 40 years
  • Metal roofs: 40 to 80 years
  • Slate shingles: 60 to 150 years
  • Clay tiles: 60 to 150 years
  • Copper shingles: 70 to 200 years

Unusually High Energy Bills

A well-maintained roof keeps your home at the optimal temperature year-round. If your roofing has leaks or poor ventilation, it can force your HVAC unit to work harder than usual. You should consider roof replacement if you notice recurring high energy bills.

Changing the color and reflectivity of your roof can lead to significant savings. A neutral coloring reduces light absorption, while solar reflectance can reduce roofing surface temperatures by 30%. A roof replacement can also improve your ventilation, which may otherwise trap hot air inside your home.

Weather Protection

Your roof should protect you during all seasons. The best materials have high durability, which reduces the amount of time and money you commit to maintenance and repairs. While there are many serviceable roofing materials for weather protection, metal panels stand out as one of the best options.

Metal offers natural mold, mildew, and water resistance. According to the Metal Roofing Alliance, it can withstand gusts up to 140 mph and has comparable resistance to hail damage as asphalt shingles. Metal is also non-combustible, so you never have to worry about your roof catching fire.

The Difference Between Replacing and Repairing a Roof

Roof replacement involves overhauling your entire roof, while repairs focus on small sections. The different project sizes mean roof replacement costs significantly more. According to Home Advisor, the average roof replacement in the United States costs about $8,000, while roof repairs cost a few hundred dollars.

It’s understandable for homeowners to prefer roof repairs over roof replacement. The process requires less time and money because roofers provide an isolated fix. If you have extensive damage, roof replacement is the better idea and will provide value over time.
