It’s necessary to replace a roof if it’s past its average lifetime (20 years or less) or you notice any water damage.
Other signs it’s time to replace your roof include:
• Loose or missing roofing material
• Broken or deformed roofing
• Sagging ceiling
• Increase in energy bills
• Pest infestation
Asphalt is one of the most common materials used for roofs in general, and steel is the most used metal for metal roofing. With benefits ranging from durability to low maintenance, metal roof replacement has become popular with homeowners. Other common materials used for roof replacement are wood, clay, slate, fiberglass, and concrete.
The cost of a roof replacement varies greatly depending on factors such as the size of your roof, the materials used, number of planes, the amount of materials needed, labor costs, and other factors.
Replacing your roof can increase your home’s value. For instance, on average, homes with metal roofs have up to 6% greater resale value than those with asphalt.
Roof replacement is a multi-step process that requires planning, building, and execution. From measuring your roof to the final inspection, the roof replacement process can take some time.
Residential roof replacement can take anywhere from days to months, depending on who you hire, the materials you use, the size of your home, and the environmental conditions at the time of roofing.
Some companies are faster than others. Erie Home is one of the fastest in the industry, from the quoting process to typical installations taking less than a day.
Whether or not a roof replacement is covered under homeowner’s insurance depends on the reason behind the roof replacement. Typically, home insurance doesn’t pay for a roof replacement if the roof is old or worn down from regular wear and tear.
Check with your homeowner’s insurance policy under the dwelling coverage to determine if a roof replacement is covered based on why you need a new roof. Usually, homeowner’s insurance will cover roof replacement costs like weather damage from wind, rain, snow, hail, ice, and lightning. Other reasons include:
• Fire and smoke
• Falling debris
