3. What is the average lifespan of a roof?
The average lifespan of a roof will vary depending on what material it uses, how well it has been maintained, and the climatic conditions it faces. On average, roofs last 10-30 years.
While some roofing materials last longer than others, the most vulnerable part of the roof is actually the underlayment. This typically has a lifespan of around 25 years and often needs to be replaced in roofs that use more durable, long-lasting materials.
4. How do I know if my home’s roof is having problems?
Some exterior warning signs that your roof is in danger include missing or disintegrating tiles or a strange appearance at a distance, which indicates your roof is nearing the end of its useful life. Inside your home, if you notice leaks, discoloration near vents or fixtures, excessive moisture, or mold growth, you could be in urgent need of repairs or a roof replacement.
5. How do I know if my building’s flat roof is having problems?
Flat roofs that begin to crack, bubble, sag, pool water, or peel away from flashing are at a minimum in need of repair and more often at or near the end of their useful life span.
6. What do I do about a leaking roof?

7. Can I do roof maintenance myself?
It is not advised that you conduct your own roof maintenance due to concerns about safety, cost, and the potential to further damage your roof. You may also void your roof’s warranty if you conduct improper repairs on it.
8. What are the signs that I need a new roof?
Some interior warning signs that indicate you need a new roof include starry beams of sunlight coming through your attic, dark stains on your roof or walls, and signs of mold or rot. Exterior signs include damaged or missing tiles, strange textures like warping or bubbling, damaged flashing, or shingle granules in your roof gutters.
9. What is the difference between a roof replacement and a reroof?
During a roof replacement, your entire roof, from the deck to the underlayment to even the shingles, will be replaced. However, a reroof simply involves replacing a new layer of asphalt tiles over an existing one that is nearing the end of its useful life but which has no obvious problems.
10. How long does a reroof take and what is the cost?
A reroof takes about two to three days and can cost thousands less than a full roof replacement, especially if you have a tile roof.
11. How long does a roof replacement take and what is the cost?
HomeGuide reports that in 2021, the average price to reroof an asphalt roof is around $450 per square, while tile roofs can cost $1,400 to $1,600 per square. The average roof replacement takes two to three days to complete, depending on weather conditions.
12. What is a Lift-N-Lay?
A Lift-N-Lay involves lifting your roof’s tiles and replacing the battens and underlayment underneath, then laying the tiles down again. This can extend the life of your roof and costs much less than a full replacement.
