Signs It's Time to Replace Your Roof

While some homeowners use a roof replacement to enhance curb appeal and boost resale value, most undertake this project only when it becomes a necessity. As your roof ages, it’s crucial to monitor it for signs of decreased protection or progressive damage. Key indicators it’s time for a roof replacement include:

  • Broken or Missing Shingles
  • Severe Granule Loss
  • Bulging, Bubbling, or Sagging Roof
  • Interior Water Damage
  • Frequent Leaks
  • Spiking Energy Bills

How Long Should Your Roof Last Before Being Replaced?

The lifespan of your roof will ultimately depend on the roofing material you choose, weather conditions, and the level of maintenance your roof receives. The average lifespans of roofs in Indianapolis are: 

  • Asphalt: 20-25 years
  • Metal: 40-70 years
  • Flat: 10-50 years (depending on material)

Roof Replacement vs. Roof Repair

Roof Replacement is Recommended When:

  • Your roof is approaching or exceeding its estimated lifespan
  • Extensive damage like multiple leaks, widespread curling, or missing shingles is present
  • The cumulative repair costs surpass 50% of a full replacement’s price

Consider Roof Repairs If:

  • Issues are localized, such as an isolated leak or a few damaged shingles
  • Your roof was installed properly and has 10+ years of serviceable life left
  • Minor repairs can adequately prolong your existing roof’s lifespan

Frequently Asked Roof Replacement Questions

Your roof’s lifespan will vary depending on weather conditions, installation quality, maintenance practices, and your roofing materials. Asphalt shingles usually need to be replaced every 20 to 25 years, flat roofing tends to last about 10 to 15 years, and metal roofing usually can withstand over 50 years before needing replacement.

Homeowners insurance will usually cover your roof replacement if the replacement was made necessary by factors outside of your control like severe weather or fire. Insurance may not cover a replacement made necessary by damage caused by standard wear and tear or age. To ensure insurance will cover your roof replacement, keep your roof in good standing over a long period of time and document all damage necessitating replacement.

The most cost-effective time to replace your roof is now. The longer you wait to replace your roof, the more expensive the replacement will be. As soon as a roof is identified as needing a roof replacement, it’s important not to delay the project. As time goes on, material prices will naturally increase, and any damage to the roof or underlying issues may worsen.

We do not recommend installing new asphalt shingles over your old shingles. Neglecting to remove your old roofing materials can end up putting significantly more stress on your underlying roof structure, potentially void the manufacturer's warranty on all existing shingles, shorten the lifespan of the new shingles, and lead to more extensive repairs in the future.
